We ordered the foccacia to start and were served one small slice of bread which was surprising. Our food (battered cod and seabass) was mediocre but then again it is predominantly a pub so didn't have high hopes. There was a good vibe in the pub and would recommend for drinks with friends rather than dinner. Would recommend for a drinks spot for a date too.

Portions have become ridiculously small. My main of scappa consisted in number 2 scallops and a floret of cauliflower the size of a tangerine. The prices are pretty gmhugh. Also the chips as a side were bit more than maybe 10? I am l’oca and used to live this place but surely after covid etc. I might not be back soon.
Pity, ste staff we’re super nice of course so no complaints there

We visited The Prince Bonaparte on a Sunday early evening for a Sunday roast. Booking was very easy and we were greeted warmly even though the pub was very busy. Great table, absolutely delightful staff (shout out to the lovely young man in particular whose name I did not catch, but really made us all feel super valued and welcome) and great food. The roasts were great, hearty and served in good time. We will definitely return. Thank you!

Booked in advance - given table in bar area.Best tables are in the rear area.
Roast beef was decidedly average and on the tough side. Porcetta was great - extremely tender and moist. Veg was fine although the roast potatoes were a let down - very obviously reheated so had lost some crispness and slightly tough and dry.
Toffee tart was poor with a very rubbery texture.
Waiting staff were friendly.

We had a nice meal, my main comment was that I was still hungry at the end. You go to a pub on a weekend in hope of a hearty meal, and this wasn't it, although individual dishes were quite nice. The chicken in a pot in particular was very difficult to get off the bone, being in a pot as it was. Also, since the refurbishment, the booths have really tight spacing between bench and table, so if you have choice, go for a freestanding table. Service was effective, so definitely a plus there.

We have been affectionate clients of Prince Bonaparte but this experience was a bit disappointing.
We waited 15 for our beers which arrived warm because left on the counter for 10 minutes.
Good arrived cold and of average quality.
I’m sure was just an episode because this place always been really good, also we are locals and we love the food environment.
I hope next time will be better.

We enjoyed a family dinner for 8 people, age range from 74 - 11. The menu options were great, something to suit everyone, including fussy teenagers. The ingredients were top quality and prices reasonable.
Special mention goes to Guiseppe our waiter, who was very pleasant and attentive.
All of us had a great evening. Thank you very much to the staff at The Prince Bonaparte!

Refurbishment has made the pub much louder - lots of noise and echoing. New menu was delicious but expensive. Still worth going, but it's no longer pub lunch pricing. Waitresses were excellent- lovely service!

Second visit since the refurb and as enjoyable as the first. They've done a great job on the redesign of the pub. It's seems lighter and airier with plenty of space. The food is a delight as is the service. Definitely recommend if you want quality food and nice ambience.

Even though the pub was understaffed the service was fast, amazingly friendly and all round a positive experience. The food was very tasty and had a great selection, not just run of the mill pub food. The staff were very on the ball and couldn’t be better. I would go back in a heartbeat and I only hope that they manage to get more staff so they get some respite.

This was my first visit and we will definitely be coming back. The menu is subtlety different compared to what you get in normal gastro-pubs so not your stand fare, the lamb and my partners mushroom (vegetarian) main course were excellent.

The service was great and it was nice to see Paulaner on draught, too many pubs have the same drinks on tap.
