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 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
The Princess of Wales Pub is located near Primrose Hill, on a bright, wealthy residential street. A little challenging to get to, especially on a hot summer's day with the London Underground acting up on a typical weekend, forcing you to squeeze on replacement bus services with sweat clinging on to everything.
I decided to pay this particular pub - which is quite out of the way for me - a...more
This is a great local pub and is everything you would want from your local pub--good food, great drinks, good service (you order at the bar), nice atmosphere and filled with locals. I live in St Johns Wood and wish this could be our local pub.
We wanted to try something new and found it on Yelp. So we went for a roast and I ended up with the grilled chicken salad and kids had burgers and...more
A little disappointed with the Princess. I came on a groupon for breakfast and prosecco, and had a quick look at the website and menu and thought it looked quite nice.
And it was .... for a pub. It's a well-maintained space with a great dining area upstairs and lovely period features. But the food was pretty basic and there just wasn't enough per entrée. I got eggs benedict (£8.95) and ended...more
