SquareMeal Review of The Prince Alfred

The fabulously handsome Grade II-listed Prince Alfred is like a 160-year-old working museum, and has recently received a major refurbishment from owners Young’s. Its former Formosa Dining Room is now a convivial English brasserie, and the coal cellars have been imaginatively transformed into private-dining vaults. There’s so much to admire at this bobby-dazzler boozer – from fluted iron columns to stunning ornate tiles and a dramatic mahogany horseshoe bar – the food and drink almost play second fiddle. Order Young’s and Camden ales on draught; Beavertown and Hammerton among the craft bottled beers; cocktails such as sloe gin Negroni; or familiar wine appellations from £20 a bottle. Bar snacks and sharing boards are available during the day, along with a classic British menu that’s served until late evening: perhaps hearty winter soup followed by beef and bone-marrow pie, with sticky toffee pudding to finish. Be sure to book ahead for Sunday roast.

The Prince Alfred is a place with excellent character all round, from ambiance to food. Highly recommend a Sunday visit for one of the best Sunday roast in town!! Soft Yorkshire pudding that is bigger than the plate, holds your beef roast, with winter veggies. The quality of the food is great, especially when accompanied by a glass of Malbec. End the meal with a sticky toffee pudding and cuppa tea. There is more to the menu, and as much as i like to try different dishes, this combination had me at hello, so do not dare to adventure out from this comfort meal. Must visit and promise after the first visit, you will go back again.
