The winner of countless awards, this bijou pub in Shepherd’s Bush has everything a food-lover could wish for from a bursting-at-the seams wine cellar and 2 AA rosettes for its modern British menu cooked by Head Chef Matt Reuther. A Victorian gin palace dating from 1829, the Princess Victoria has been lovingly restored with duck-egg blue walls, stunning parquet floors, eclectic antique furniture and ornate stucco sky-lights. There is a large bar area as well with regularly changing ales and a walled-herb garden for summertime al fresco dining. We also have an elegant 'Room Upstairs', perfect for special events and celebrations.

Something about its outward appearance piqued my interest - perhaps its grandiose revamped-Victorian style, perhaps the sandwich board outside with enthusiastic recommendations from the FT and the Independant. I resolved to pop in for dinner some time soon.
It took me a while to get around to popping...more
This newly restored and refurbished pub / gastro is sure to be a winner with the local clientele. A bight and airy feel to this Victorian building, with a large bar area and plenty of space and tables to enjoy your food.
