Philip Carter left this review about The Duchess Belle

Now just called The Duchess. Has seating out the front, a back garden & a roof terrace. Sells real ale, but both clips were turned round. Lunch served. Upddate: Now has a fenced area for seating out the front. As noted in the title, the name is now Duchess Belle, run by the same people as the Griffin Belle in Vauxhall.

There were a few real ales on in here - GK IPA, Hogsback TEA, and the GK "house" ale called Duchess Ale (£2.20 a half), which is actually Hardy & Hanson Bitter rebadged. Orchard Pig Hogfather cider was also available. I didn't see any sign of food when I was in late afternoon on a Friday.

This pub has now been fairly modernised, but in a fairly tasteful way. Perhaps some might not consider the couple of enormous framed black and white photographs of naked ladies in artistic poses as tasteful, but I thought they went quite nicely. Other features of note were the old jukebox, presumably as a decorative feature as it had a "do not touch" sign on it, the brewery mirrors, and the large platform above the door to the garden bearing a piano, guitar and motor scooter all in Union Flag livery. Unusual, to say the least. It's bare-boarded of course, but all furnishings were normal tables and chairs. There's also a reasonably large garden at the back.

It was obviously fairly wuiet late afternoon on a Friday, but they had enough punters in to make it worth their effort of opening up. I imagine that they will hope to generate extra business when the Battersea Power Station development opens. I quite liked my short visit here, even if some of the traditional pub character had been lost. The beer selection seems to have improved a bit since its last refurbishment, but as a Greene King pub it's never going to be great.
