150 years young, The Princess of Wales pub in leafy Primrose Hill has recently been lovingly renovated, re-establishing itself as a warm and welcoming local with great British pub food, quality drinks and laid-back atmosphere. Set over three floors that include an elegant first floor dining room, lower-ground bar and event space and the ‘Banksy beer garden’ (named after a mysterious lion stencil that appeared in 2011), it’s got something for all, be it a Friday night Rhubarb Royale cocktail, Dry cured bacon breakfast bap or a pint and Mrs King’s Pork Pie n’ Piccalilli. Keeping within the style of the pub and its heritage a wide selection of predominantly British spirits are served including Chase, Hendricks and Sipsmiths served with the classic ‘ice and a slice’ or in a selection of tasty cocktails. A thoughtfully chosen wine list includes Chapel Down wines from Kent alongside Champagne, Prosecco, cask ales, organic ciders and good ol’ London Pride.

I've been switching between a 4 and 5 star rating for this place. It's hard to fault the place, but I also wouldn't say it's "as good as it gets".
For the past few months I've been working in Camden. The high street is bustling with people so the standard of food and drink along there tends not to be great. My office prefers to head over into Primrose Hill where it's a bit quieter. The...more
So, here's the thing, I like the Princess of Wales. It's a beautiful venue. Slap, bang between Chalk Farm and Regent's Park. Big Windows looking out onto the beautiful wide streets and architecture of the area.
The place has a nice relaxing atmosphere. A great selection of beers, ciders and wines.
The food is reasonably priced and delicious. I had the Potato roti with mixed roasted...more
We didn't actually eat or drink anything here due to the staff being so unfriendly, so I can't speak for the cuisine.
I came here with some friends on a Sunday - we walked in, looking to grab a nice Sunday roast, as is our wont in merry old England.
The staff could have politely informed us that they were fully - booked, but instead they were rude and very unwelcoming. They had a table free...more
We discovered the Princess of Wales through a Yelp event and decided that evening that we need to come back. It was not just because they made it a fun event, but we were also impressed with the service outside the event. When we ordered some wine later that evening, my friend was curious about it and asked the waitress some questions and she was just so helpful ... even brought us the bottle...more
