Squaremeal Review of Princess Victoria ?

Princess Victoria closed on 07/17

This sympathetically restored Victorian gin palace is worth the trek out to W12, according to impressed readers who love its “great gastropub vibe”, top food and “amazing” wines. Dark parquet flooring and a striking curved bar help to create a “lovely” drinking area, while the chandeliered dining room offers intimacy for those hankering after some jazzed-up British nosh. There are excellent boards of charcuterie and smoked fish to share, or you can kick off with lemon arancini, Gorgonzola and beetroot salad before getting stuck into a char-grilled steak, a pie or Loch Duart salmon with sour onions, celeriac purée and piquillo pepper mash. For afters, perhaps order dark chocolate pot with blackberry compote. Drinks also merit serious attention, from homemade lemonade and regularly changing ales to a stupendous 300-bin wine list with a fondness for Pinot Noir and boutique vineyards; you can also buy bottles at shop prices to take home.

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...
