138 Upper Richmond Road, London, SW15 2SP (Map)
A proper pub The Prince of Wales was totally renovated in 2007 and transformed into a chic and contemporary British boozer with a great selection of beers and wines and quality drinks made in a relaxed and informal environment. The original Victorian face has been retained and inside is always buzzing with a creative young crowd. The menu is focused on rustic traditional English dishes such as the crispy pig, dandelion and apple salad; lamb fritters with caper relish; hare and potato pie for two; and beer battered haddock with pea purée, tartare sauce and chips. Perfect for long, lazy Sunday lunches and nights out with friends. The cocktail list is small but perfect with top choices including a Red Snapper made with Hendrick’s and the Really Dirty Martini. Unusually the bar stocks Beefeater Summer Gin, Beefeater Winter Gin and Beefeater 24 as well as Martin Millers Westbourne Strength and Oxley Gin. These guys know their gin.
