SquareMeal Review of
Prince of Peckham
If you’re a fan of all things jerk, then make a date with Prince of Peckham, a corner pub on this once inhospitable stretch of Queens Road, which is now starting to feel the reach of Peckham proper’s hip makeover. Once a dingy old man’s boozer, The Prince is now serving up a regal selection of jerk burgers and wings – plus all the sides. The jerk chicken bun with jerk sauce and fries is succulent and served in generous portions, wings come in various flavours including seriously spicy buffalo, while buttermilk and Red Stripe fried chicken is a nice Jamaican touch. Beers and wines are perfectly good, but the drinks crown goes to a fittingly rum-based selection of cocktails, such as The Prince, a heady mix of Bacardi Carta Negra and Wray & Nephew Overproof rum, with tropical juices. The mismatched decor features huge leather sofas, exposed brick walls, huge glittering chandeliers and cool music vibes as standard, while service is casual and friendly.
