Review on The Princess of Shoreditch
The Princess of Shoreditch a handsome pub dating back to 1742 is owned and run by Scott Hunter and Maria Larsen. The ground floor is a lively drinkers haunt where you can order a variety of traditional pub dishes, but most of the culinary action happens upstairs, reached via a wrought iron spiral staircase. The smart dining room has relaxing pale green walls adorned with regal pictures of princesses, a marble fireplace displayed with fine wine bottles under an elegant mirror and small orange wall lights sets the tone.
Ingredients are carefully sourced, meat comes from Nairnshire and Speyside in the Highlands of Scotland, fruit and vegetables from farms in Kent and New Covent Garden Market, wild leaves and mushrooms are foraged in Wales and fish arrives daily straight from the market. The menu works its way through some inviting ideas along the lines of razor clams in plum tomato and chilli sauce with garden herb crust before main courses such as line caught Stone bass, citrus Jersey royals, ginger beurre blanc, coriander cress or confit rabbit leg, pickled carrots, fine beans, tarragon reduction. While desserts offer satisfaction as in a caramelised tarte tatin with butterscotch sauce and vanilla ice cream or a classic crème brûlée with gooseberry berry compote. There is an excellent wine list which goes walkabout in search of good value and interesting tipples, with several options available by the glass.
