The Prince of Wales Review

Top 10 things we learned about the Prince of Wales bar and restaurant when we visited:

1) If you’re not a regular visitor to Brixton, you may find it difficult to locate the Prince of Wales. I rarely venture south of the river, and when I do I rely heavily on my phone to help me get to my chosen destination. After three laps of Brixton High Street, I relegated the phone to my pocket and asked someone directions – lo and behold, situated next to a rather garish KFC, was the place I was looking for.

2) With white tablecloths and mirrored walls, the inside of the restaurant is in stark contrast to its dull façade. The designers of the recent renovation have been brave with the décor, distancing themselves from other gastropubs by aiming for a spacious French brasserie feel.

3) The menu is extremely well thought-out and reasonably priced, with specials every night ranging from pizzas to Sunday roasts.

4) The highlight of the meal for me was a starter of three generously sized salt cod fishcakes, sitting on a bed of zingy pea guacamole. The lime in the guacamole cut through the comforting richness of the fish to create a truly soul-satisfying dish.

5) A celeriac veloute was equally triumphant. Served with two cheese and mushroom toasties, the veloute made for the perfect winter starter.

6) When the weather dips below freezing, try searching for dishes that hug you from the inside and radiate warmth. One such dish is the chestnut gnocchi, served swimming in cream and with kale and wild mushroom. There is nothing else to say: this chestnut gnocchi was made to banish the winter chill.

7) Unfortunately, not all dishes got the all-round thumbs up. A buffalo burger was served with a tooth-achingly sweet red onion confit and lacked integral seasoning.

8) Similarly, a dessert of caramelised apricots and crème caramel looked the part but was rendered inedible because it was so sweet.

9) One tip: avoid ordering the house wine. It’s slightly chemical in taste. Instead, opt for one of the other affordable wines on the menu – you can thank me later.

10) While my forays into Brixton were scarce before, they will be less so now. Those salt cod fishcakes are already calling me back.
