The Princess Royal


The markets, parks and townhouse-lined streets in London’s well-heeled Notting Hill are perfect for lazy strolls, and Ben Tish is pretty close to perfecting the gourmet pub. With a little green oasis in its back – and front – The Princess Royal has an English-garden-meets-Med feel to it. Share small plates to start (not that you’ll want to give any of the delicately chillied and zesty tuna tartare or meaty beef croquettes away), then on to a large plate – the duck breast with confit duck leg croquette got our vote. And if it’s a Sunday, every meat’s a winner, especially with beef fat potatoes, veggies and Yorkshires.
