The Prince Bonaparte is a stylish, Art Deco inspired pub with lounge bar & restaurant. Whether you would prefer a pint at the 1920s style steel bar, or to get cosy with a glass of wine in one of the lavish booths, you will find the Prince Bonaparte is an elegant, comfortable pub that’s perfect for drinking, dining, chatting or simply watching the world go by. We welcome children and dogs.

This is a listed 19th century public house with a huge wealth of history, and it’s only a 5 minute walk from the largest antique market in the world, Portobello.

We are just a 10 minute walk from either Notting Hill, Bayswater or Westbourne Park tube.

Slow service at the bar and with food. My first two choices from the menu weren’t available. They do have a nice wine list though.
I used to go regularly with friends for their pub quiz, but sadly management has decided to discontinue so we (and the other quiz teams) will have to find somewhere else to go now.

Nice lively pub with good food. Good atmosphere and not too noisy. Separate dining area if you want a bit of quiet. Good selection of tasty ales too.

Nice decor and great lamb chop from the grill.
Service was OK and wine list interesting and pleasant.
Appalled to have a couple with yelling infant seated in the restaurant on a Saturday evening, so we had to move in order to distance ourselves so that we could hear each other's conversation.

I've been visiting the PB for over 20 years and and it has always been a reliable go-to especially once the summer crowds retreat. The service used to be relaxed, tho attentive and not too invasive - overall good.
The food I would have described as modern British - a good mix of worldly goods that would fill your heart just so.

On my last visit none of these attributes were in sight - the first sign was the empty tables at 13:00 - usually this place is heaving from 11:00 on a Saturday morning - the waitress was passive aggressive - she made me feel guilty whenever I wanted something - at some point I had to get up to order my food.

And when the food came it was cold - my squid looked half cooked and so did my prawns.

I consoled myself with a fair amount of Guinness after that! This pub is a bastion of the area - please don't let it dies because somebody does not have the experience!

If anyone at PB is reading this - I love your pub!
I just didn't appreciate the sloppy service and half measure food!

We booked for the quiz and sampled the menu beforehand. The prices are a little on the high side and I think a service charge is a little cheeky when you’ve walked up to a bar to order; however my robata bavette steak was very tasty (expensive on its own though). Good wine list and a good seslection of beer.

Totally gorgeous Sunday roast. Literally one of the best I have ever had!! The meat was really good quality and the roast spuds and gravy were top notch. This will be my new local from now on.
Friendly staff and nice atmosphere. Happy.

Looking forward to working my way through the menu.

Our waitress was extremely surly and unhelpful. Each request for drinks/ bread/ food was met with a roll of the eyes.
We waited over an hour for our main courses. Food was ok, but very expensive for the quality. Manager gave as a steep reduction for the meal given the appalling service.
I won't be returning.

The electronic booking system was a failure as when we arrived the staff were not expecting us -fortunately they were able to accommodate us. I had also rung earlier to make an alteration to the numbers so there is clearly a management problem with booking. The staff on the ground were very apologetic, helpful and friendly however. Food was standard gastro pub fare which was ok for our large party but maybe not special enough when the food is the main event. The decor and ambiance is lovely. By the end of the evening the place was rather quiet for a Saturday night.
