4 out of 5 stars

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Please note, the Princess Victoria has re-opened under new management. Time Out Food & Drink Editors, September 2017.

Located on the hectic Uxbridge Road, this regal boozer is the best pub for miles around, combining a beautifully restored interior that’ll induce pub envy, highly respectable food, a well-selected drinks menu and friendly, long-serving members of staff.

Frosted front windows convey a snug feel whatever time of day or night, and a central island bar vies for your attention with photos of classic movie stars peering down from the walls. An adjacent dining room serves up restaurant-standard steaks, seafood and Sunday roasts, although all-day moreish bar snacks (scotch eggs, sausage rolls and so on) may well kill any ambition you have for dinner. 

Ales are well-kept with Timothy Taylor Landlord or UBU Purity almost always available, while wine is taken seriously here – the list stretches to some 30 pages detailing regions and varieties in painstaking detail.

Visit during the day at weekends and you’ll almost certainly walk in on a gaggle of parents with their kids in tow. And if footie fans aren’t your thing, keep an eye out for QPR’s home fixture list. Regardless, the Princess Victoria is a cracking pub, certainly up there with the capital’s finest.

Princess Victoria says
A former gin palace in Shepherd's Bush, we pride ourselves on being a local, food-led pub with a grand bar, spacious dining room and large private dining space perfect for group parties and events. Expect a traditional British menu with a contemporary twist, plus an award-winning wine list.
