Squaremeal Review of The Prince Arthur ?

Many believe the Martin Brothers will have a job besting The Prince Arthur with any new ventures. The design here is restrained. Yes, you’ll encounter a few swish lamps & some on-trend taxidermy dotted about, but otherwise the interior remains resolutely pubby with its racing-green stools & leaded windows. In contrast, the kitchen is definitely from the gastropub school. Essex hock croquettes with grain-mustard gribiche, a kilo pot of Scottish mussels with hand-cut chips, & pineapple tarte Tatin leap out from a menu supplemented by on-the-button seasonal specials such as, in springtime, white asparagus, wild garlic & St George mushrooms on toast. Here’s a bargain: two courses & a glass of house wine for £16 from Monday to Wednesday evenings. A monthly guest ale keeps the taps interesting, but the wine list seems a mite dull in comparison to the food.

The Prince Arthur had sold out of Aberdeen Angus. Not a problem for me – shit happens – and my wing-man soon came around. But being someone of faith that any Pub with requisite sense of its onions will go all out to cover all bases, I also know that whenever you sell numbers on a steak dish it means only one thing; there's not enough else to choose from. I respect a short menu. But if you're going to be concise you've got to be commercial. The trouble is that the ‘28 day aged Rib of Beef, Peppercorn...

I love this place. It is exactly what a London local should be. You can feel the history – the ghosts of the past – still drifting through the place (in a good way). Many a tale has been whispered in here… Apart from the wonderful character, and it's location, which is actually in and amongst houses, as opposed to a built up ‘drinking area’, they have some excellent drinks, and delicious food too. Sunday roasts are fantastic! Can't recommend highly enough.
