The Princess of Wales


Taking pride of place on the banks of the River Lea, The Princess of Wales is the go-to pub in Hackney. You're guaranteed a warm welcome and friendly service throughout your visit, especially if you bring along your furry friend! Head Chef David passionately creates innovative dishes as well as serving everyone's pub favourites. Over the weekends you can tuck into their popular Burger Shack dishes and dive into their mouth-watering Sunday Roasts.

They have plenty of choice behind the bar; an array of local beers and real ales, indulgent cocktails, plus that all important mid-morning coffee. With a wonderful covered and heated beer garden with riverside views, The Princess is the perfect spot for enjoying the great outdoors all year round.

Gen and the team look forward to welcoming you soon.
