Review: The Princess of Shoreditch | FOOD

I’m on a mission to try all of London’s great pubs, mostly so I can try their Sunday roast dinners and The Princess of Shoreditch kept cropping up while I was researching. One Sunday when I was in the area, I decided to pop in on the off chance I might be able to get a table and I was in luck – after waiting just five minutes we secured the last table.

The Princess of Shoreditch is what I’d call a gastro pub, a really nice classic pub which serves exceptional food. The inside has a really lovely feel to it, it almost feels like you could be in the country with its big wooden tables. The name is a little bit deceiving because it’s not actually in Shoreditch – it’s on the edge of the City of London, a few minutes walk from Old Street station.

The Princess of Shoreditch – What We Ordered

I was very tempted by the venison shank that was on the menu because this is a meat that I absolutely love and you don’t see it on menus enough, especially in London but ended up choosing the whole roast chicken crown which I have to admit is a personal favourite – it’s a classic!

The Adlington Farm chicken crown is so huge that it’s designed to be shared between two peoples at £17 per person which works out at £34 in total for the dish. It comes out in a huge dish surrounded by crispy roast potatoes and a gravy jug each (this is necessary – I need my own gravy for a roast dinner). You’re also served a dish filled to the brim with braised red cabbage, kale, carrots and topped with two giant Yorkshire puddings and you just serve yourself. Trust me, you won’t go hungry with this dish. I’d been eyeing up next doors portion of sticky toffee pudding (another favourite of mine) but I was far too stuffed to even think about dessert by the time I finished my dinner.

The Princess of Shoreditch – 4/5

Great quality food with a really authentic pub atmosphere, in the middle of London. Next time I’ll be trying the venison and that sticky toffee pudding!

Food – 4/5

Service – 4/5

Decor / Ambience – 5/5

A meal for two including one glass of wine and service charge cost £44.71.

    I’ve never been before but I go around that area quite often (although usually during the week as I work closeby). I may have to make a special effort to go on a Sunday :).

    Looks lovely :). I work close by so I am around that area quite often, but never usually at weekends. Looks like I will be making a special trip though 🙂 xo
