For 25 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. This year diners have submitted over 60,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK.
One of the first gastropubs on the City’s Shoreditch border, this place takes old-timers “back to the early ’00s!”. What they do, “they do well”, whether you’re eating in the bar or on the upstairs mezzanine.
This well-established gastropub revival of a traditional old watering hole – one of the original hip venues on the Shoreditch-City border – still pulls in a “lively and trendy clientele” with “top food” both in the bar and up the spiral stairs in a more formal dining room.
“Downstairs, they still know how to do proper pub food” – up the spiral stairs there’s a “relaxed” restaurant serving “surprisingly good” grub – at this “unpretentious” but happening Shoreditch boozer.
“A slightly cramped room above what was a traditional corner boozer” – the main dining option at this trendy and “still reliable” Shoreditch stalwart.
Princess of Shoreditch Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Quality can never overcome pressure and eating in the City in December is always going to be a disappointment. The waves of party laughter make it difficult to hear and that goes for the waitress as well as the diner. Nonetheless the food in this very Hoxton gastropub was well up to standard, Whether it was smoked salmon or pork chops there was nothing to complain of."
