This “old Victorian gin palace” “must be one of the best pubs in the Bush”, so for locals it has been “wonderful to see the Vic resurrect itself from the ashes of oblivion” (after a short period of closure last year). “The atmosphere is warm and friendly and the food is quite delicious”“proper restaurant quality”; “they’ve recently added a pizza oven, and even the pizzas are a substantial cut above what you might expect”.

“Back from the brink, with good, reasonably priced food and an outstanding wine list… especially for a pub in W12” – this huge gin palace (with fine, traditional interior) on the main drag out of Shepherd’s Bush has survived turbulent times (due to a change of ownership) and is now back on form.

For 29 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. This year diners have submitted over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK.

Have you eaten at The Princess Victoria?

Owner's description

 One of the original gin palaces built in 1829, the elegant Princess Victoria is now owned by Three Cheers Pub Co and has recently undergone an extensive refurbishment to become a truly beautiful public house.

The handsome horseshoe bar offers over 100 artisan and big name gins, 40 craft beers and real ales plus an exceptional wine list. There is also a spectacular dining room, stunning private party room as well as a new heated front terrace and rear courtyard garden.

Food focuses on the best ingredients using small producers from across the British Isles. Chicken and pork is free-range, beef is aged in-house and fish is sourced sustainably from English day boats off the south coast.

Five luxurious hotel rooms are now located on the top floor. The boutique rooms are individually designed, named after classic gin cocktails and feature super king, king or twin beds, bespoke gin inspired artwork, Egyptian cotton linen, a smart HD TV, Nespresso machine, black-out blinds and mini-fridge.
