Sister to the Pig and Butcher, The Princess of Shoreditch restaurant-cum-pub and Michelin Plate winner serves British dishes and game. Famed for its Sunday roasts with all the trimmings, the typical old-school pub also has the self-proclaimed ‘best pub ambience in Shoreditch’ with its beautiful wooden feature bar.
Nibble on an oozy Scotch egg from The Princess of Shoreditch menu to start. Mains include guinea fowl breast served alongside fondant pommes and a summer vegetable velouté sauce. Round it all off with a slice of banana cake, plated with peanut brittle crumble, a boozy toffee rum sauce and ice-cream.
The unpretentious interior is accented by quirky mismatched antique chairs and female-led portraits on the walls. Admire the 18th-century exterior when street-style dining under the awning, while inside, head down a spiral staircase and discover a spirited bar.
