SquareMeal Review of
The Prince Bonaparte
Situated away from the hurly-burly of Portobello Road and Westbourne Grove, the ever-popular Bonaparte continues to draw an attractive crowd of thirtysomethings with money to spend on real ales,
thoughtfully selected wines and above-average food. Oysters, Spanish charcuterie plates, rib-eye steaks and artisan British cheeses are year-round favourites on a menu that ticks all the boxes
for seasonality and provenance, from warm beetroot, walnut, Jersey Royal and rocket salad to slow-roast pork belly with pesto mash, spring greens and cider velouté or char-grilled whole sea
bass with sweet potato, chilli and avocado salsa. Desserts might feature summer pudding with clotted cream, and set lunches are terrific value at £9.50/11.50 for two/three courses. The upmarket
