The Princess Victoria
- Great 'Gastro' Pub ( www.princessvictoria.co.uk)
On Mel's recommendation Bill & I met some friends here on Friday night and if Shepherds Bush area is good for you, then I highly recommend this pub. It doesn't look much from the outside, but the food - and wine list - are fab! It's all quite simple fare, but they focus on really good ingredients, cooked perfectly and served in a generous portion. We started off by sharing a wonderful plate of cold meats, dressed crab and goats cheese and rocket salad. The boys followed this with a wonderful steak, I had rabbit and wild mushroom pappardelle and my other friend had a plate of roasted cod. Dessert was one Sticky Toffee Pudding, two Chocolate Mousse with Peanut topping and four spoons! It's not expensive - probably circa £25 per head for three courses excluding wine - and worth every penny.
