Gordon Ramsay is continuing the rollout of his casual dining division, with a new Street Pizza restaurant at Battersea Power Station.

It will be sited under the Grosvenor Bridge railway arches in Circus West Village, on the former site for Danish brand Mother Pizza.

The opening will be timed to take advantage of the ability to begin trading outdoors on 12 April.

The format opened its first branch at 10 Bread Street in the heart of St Paul’s three years ago offering “bottomless” pizza for £15.

Other branches are in Camden and Southwark.

Ramsay said: “London is an incredible city. From the banks of the Thames, you can see some of London’s most famous buildings: the Tower of London, Houses of Parliament and of course the iconic Battersea Power Station.

“For many years I would travel home to South London, after a late service, crossing the river in the shadows of those huge derelict chimneys, never did I imagine one day I would open a restaurant on such a historic site and become part of such a thriving community.”

The celebrity chef announced plans last year to open a further 50 restaurants across the UK “in the foreseeable future”, as well as major expansion into Asia with 200 sites in the next five years.
