If you are looking for a classic pub, this is not your place. If, on the other hand, you are for interesting food in a nice and cosy setting, this place is perfect for you. Service was friendly and accommodating to our dietary requirements. Highly recommended.

I have visited before, and generally enjoy the menu - though there is little for non meat eaters. Candle lit and a nice ambience, but much of our meal was spoiled by a group of about 12 guys having their Christmas meal. They were loud, swearing, sexist and displayed no concern for their impact on other diners. In my booking... More

Thank you for taking the time to review your most recent visit to The Princess. Whilst December does tend to add a decibel or two onto noise levels, we absolutely agree this large group could've / should've been managed better. We very much hope you will come again in the new year when the ambience will be back to its... More

Been there with family to celebrate a very happy occasion, we had 4 different dishes the meat and the vegetarian food were just excellent. Cod cheek curry is recommended. The starters were good especially the Cured salmon. bottom line: good food good wine and beer good music and overall good experience.

We had to wait for an hour to be seated but the Sunday Roast was worth having to wait. The service was polite. I will be back!

nice people working on the night but there is a feeling that staff are not being trained to insure you are looked after from beginning to the end of your meal. They provide the basic service but nothing else.

Neighbourhood Profile
Shoreditch
The western front of the edgy East End, Shoreditch is a perennially trendy haven for anything “street” – be it art, food, or fashion. With its handful of well connected transportation links dotting its perimeter, along with an ever increasing variety of shops, hotels, bars, and restaurants, it's easy to explore this trend-conscious and youth-oriented neighbourhood. There's a lingering post-industrial grit about Shoreditch, but because it shares a border with “The City” financial district, the influence from its upscale neighbour can result in fascinating outcomes.
