Review on The Prince Arthur

The Prince Arthur is a Victorian Hackney street-corner boozer (circa 1861) just a stone's throw from London Fields. It has been revitalised with care and understatement, and it looks good with its cream-and-black frontage, chummy bar and original features. The pub's old fireplace has been retained, along with timber floorboards and diamond-leaded windows.

The place still functions admirably as a local watering hole, although most attention is now focussed on the blackboard menu. Honest-to-goodness British food is the order of the day, and evening visitors can look forward to a catalogue of gutsy specialities from the regions and from the new British renaissance. Expect Singapore black pepper squid or braised pig cheek, caramelized apples and black pudding before main courses such as craft beer battered haddock and chips, mushy peas, tartare or roast pheasant, bubble and squeak, quince and cobnut stuffing. When it comes to desserts you might see Green tea and jasmine rice pudding or chocolate and hazelnut mousse with salt caramel popcorn.
