Naturally, this is a pub with a difference however. It’s actually a mini high street, stretching over four buildings that offer 800 seats. The Prince of Wales pub is now converted to a slick two-level drinking den housing two bars, and connected to not just one, but four restaurants that each lead into a heated, enchanted garden.
This “veritable avenue of epicurean indulgence” (according to The Nudge) includes culinary stars Patty and Bun whose chicken skin salt is said to be stuff of legend. There’s Peckham’s hugely popular Begging Bowl, and Restaurant Rabbit - set up by three brothers whose British focus includes flavourings like lovage, plums and sage.
Last but not least, Notting Hill’s MAM serves Vietnamese BBQ. Pronounced mum, it’s from the people behind the hugely popular East London noodle spot Salvation in Noodles. Don’t forget the cocktail bar, wrapped around the trunk of an old willow tree. The Prince at West Brompton Crossing is open weekdays from noon ‘til late, and from 11am on weekends.
