The Princess of Wales


The Princess of Wales, with pride of place on the banks of the River Lea, combines the best of a traditional London pub with everything you’d expect from a first-class bar and restaurant. British classics like beer battered fish and chips and juicy burgers will always feature on their menus but you’ll also spot home-grown recipes on their brand new autumn menu, that feature the best of regional produce. On their bar, cask ales take pride of place but we’ve also made room for some top-notch craft beers. The wines, gins, vodkas and rums follow a similar pattern: firm favourites mixed in with exciting, new spicy flavours perfect for the autumn months. 

With a wonderful beer garden with riverside views, perfect for spending days enjoying everything autumn has to offer with friends and family, there's no better spot in Hackney. 

Christmas is all about happiness and joy with family and friends. Whether you’re at your local or cooking at home, let's get festive together! So why not book a table with us and enjoy our delightful Crown of English Turkey, pan-roasted halibut, Angus fillet of beef, Butternut squash or a Hampshire game and juniper suet pie? How mouthwatering does that sound? What's more, with bubbles on arrival we can't wait to kick this festive season off in style. Don't forget to save space for our famous home-made mince pies at the end!

The Six Nations are back and the Princess of Wales are showing the remainder of the games live! Book your table to ensure the best seats in the house. Ahead of your visit, download the Young's On Tap app to order food and drink to your table, so you won't miss a minute of the action! Scrum on down...

Nick and the team look forward to seeing you soon!
