    Pretty venue but zero value for money and no service. Its apparent the staff have not been trained and are taking on more covers than they can fulfill to a high standard. Service charge here was not justified in the slightest, no attention to detail and it felt like we were an inconvenience

    it took more than 1 hour for our main course, even then only one of the 2 dishes was ready, and the second one came to the table after 1 hour and 30 min, expensive for what it is, poor service

    It was a lovely Sunday Roast. The Yorkshire Puds where almost better than my mom’s (please don’t tell her that) The wine list was affordably priced and beautifully curated from around the world.

    A truly wonderful London Gastro Pub with a different. Sharing plates, Oysters and a great wine list. Lorna gave excellent exemplary service along with the team in the ambience of a conservatory style dining experience. Our food didn’t disappoint and excelled on every dish including the Rice Pudding with forced Rhubarb Ice Cream. A great new find.

    Food not good at all was very disappointed. Soggy tomatoes, highly fried food.It would be ok to go for a drink but definitely not the food. Took a visiting friend from Australia and felt bad I had taken her there as there is so many amazing places to eat in London. This is not one. Bad service.

    I normally don't write negative reviews but for the price we paid (£100/pers including wine), the food was underwhelming. Our waiter who was perfectly friendly but had no clue. Couldn't answer any questions whether it was about the drinks or the food. Focaccia arrived cold and dry as if it made the day before and sat in the fridge. Cornish crab in the raw section of menu sounded fancy because it was raw but was like any other crab/mayo dish. It's hard to fail a flat iron steak but the steak was cold. The venue is very cute and well decorated. Verdict: best to go for drinks but not for the food.

    The Princess RoyalResponded on 6 June 2022

    Good Afternoon SoundsTrue Thank you for taking the time to inform us of your feedback and I am terribly sorry to hear your recent experience fell below our usual standards. I have taken your feedback on board and ensured that the management team continue our extensive training with the teams so we can avoid this happening in the future. Regarding the food I have passed your feedback on to the Head Chef for him to investigate what happened on this occasion.

    I had the Sunday roast, lamb, which was just overcooked fat, a thin !small slice. Not what I expected! I complained and they took it off the bill, a very correct gesture. But I would have preferred a nice piece of lamb! the rest of the meal was good, and the service perfect.

    The Princess RoyalResponded on 1 June 2022

    We are so very sorry the lamb disappointed, but thank you for bringing it to my attention at the time. Very much hope we have the opportunity to welcome you back, with perfectly cooked meat on your next visit. Kindest Regards Rosie (GM)

    Highly recommend the place for anyone. We went to the princess royal for a dinner with friends and their dog and got a table in the beautiful garden. I have to say I’ve been pretty lucky with restaurants in London, I’ve always had nice service. Here though the service was so incredibly friendly, it really makes the place stand out. The food was very good too and it is definitely one of my favorite places in London now. In terms of ambience it is a gastronomic pub that is really beautiful and cozy but not at all pretentious. A true gem to Notting hill

    We received beef tartare instead of burrata and the waitress actually said burrata when she put the beef tartare down! The large chicken salad had about 3 tiny pieces of chicken in it, not even half a chicken breast worth and no Parmesan at all. We had to get up and go and order drinks from the bar three times as there was never a waiter around and then when the drinks were brought, they were just plonked on the corner of the table and the waiter walked off without saying a word. For £100 a head, you should be able to expect more

    Beautiful decor! Loved the view over the back garden. Best course was the fresh though portion was tiny, some dishes like the gnocchi was good but drown in butter and chickpeas were a little weird- something like spinach would be better. Monkfish also had weird beans and was hard to get off bone. Service friendly but sporadic. One dish we wanted to try an appetizer with meted cheese not available as fryer was broken Hopefully they will get their groove soon, a lot of potential.

    Sadly overall the experience was disappointing. The food was ok, I was expecting more from a Ben Tish establishment. Thé service was poor with many things getting missed. Despite there only being 3 of us (adults) and booking some weeks in advance we were seated in the very noisy family area. I’m not sure I’d go back.
