It takes a lot to drag me from my north London roots given the array of fantastic gastropubs around however the Princess Victoria certainly was worth the trip. An excellent place to visit despite the hood that is Shepherds Bush. Be warned, its at least 4 bus stops away from Shepherds Bush station so a bit of a trek. That said, this place is a lovely gem in the area, all high ceilings and cosy sofas and a really lovely atmosphere. Got very busy later on so id recommend booking. The barman was also really pleasant and friendly too and made me think what a lovely place indeed!
Starter was a freshly made scotch egg, with a runny middle rather than the usual eggs im used to having in the local pubs which have been sitting around a while! Mains – I had the loin of belly pork, accompanied by mustard mash and caramelised onions (i think) but was pure melt in the mouth deliciousness. Pudding was the traditional sticky toffee pudding and again, delicious stuff. Friends had the shepherds pie and the veggie option of butternut squash and both agreed they were great dishes. I also liked the fact that the waiter AND also the person who took my booking seemed ultra flexible and knowledgeable about the dishes on offer so i did feel i got some informed recommendations before my order. Nothing to complain about though they do need to identify the mens and ladies loos a bit more clearly (*embarrassed look*) – also, could do with a few more vegetarian options for the fussy ones! Otherwise it ended up being approx £30 a head which was a great price for the quality we had. Im definitely going to be heading back if this is an example of what the area has to offer – delicious…!
