Square Meal Review of Princess Victoria ?

It might be a ‘bit of a trek’ for non-locals, but this sympathetically restored Victorian gin palace is worth the voyage, according to impressed readers. Dark parquet flooring, Air Force-blue walls & a striking bar make a first-class drinking area, & the chandeliered dining room offers intimacy for those hankering after the ‘delicious’ food. Start with cured, pickled & smoked fish – from pepper-cured tuna to oak-smoked eel – or the gutsy pig’s head fritters with sauce gribiche, then rainbow trout with brown shrimps & almond butter, finishing with honeycomb ice-cream. Service is ‘pleasant & friendly’, & drinkers can choose homemade lemonade, regularly changing ales, or something from the stupendous wine list (majoring in Pinot Noir & boutique vineyards) – perhaps accompanied by a bar snack of chorizo Scotch quail’s egg.

Wine List of the Year Award Finalist

This west London gin palace is that rarity: a gastropub that still manages to be as much pub as it is gastro. From a mixed area, the wine list reflects that well, with wines for those on a budget and some for those looking to spend a bit. It’s helpful and conversational, with good ranges from Burgundy, Italy and the Rhône.

    Melissa Foodie :: Princess Victoria, Shepherd

    After walking past a number of Aussie-themed pubs and unremarkable chicken places, we ended up at The Princess Victoria. It is one of those pubs where you can have a very nice time. It consists of a large room at the front and a dining room at the back. The waiter attempted to dissuade us from sitting in the busy pub bit (after a little pushing, we discovered he was trying to fill up the empty dining room and clear the pub for football supporters. Nice try). We waited for our friends to arrive and although they offered us their own brand of still or sparkling water (free of charge, tick) and a basket of bread (also free of charge for the initial one), they didn't seem to want to take a proper drinks order until said friends arrived twenty minutes later, how ever much flagging down we tried. Were they not trying to sell us things here!? I ordered a couple of starters because they looked more interesting than the main courses...
