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.
