Review on The Prince of Wales

An imposing and rather grand-looking boozer, The Prince of Wales on Upper Richmond Road, Putney, has been given a thorough gastro-lift by its current owners and has moved up the rankings, from drinkers' rough house to animated destination restaurant with a dedication to good food.

The place spreads itself over three levels, with a high-ceilinged bar at one end and two dining areas at the other. Menus aim to please and the blackboard lists suppliers and seasonal produce to emphasise the kitchen's loyalties. Unpretentious British food is the order of the day - pitch-perfect for the surroundings - and there's plenty of heart warming and palate-teasing stuff on offer.

Starters are mostly home-made provisions - potted mackerel with cucumber pickle, rabbit and prune terrine - along with lively salads (crispy duck tongue with dandelion, say). Mains bring on Middle White pork shoulder with choucroute and apple, beef and London Pride pie, and organic halibut with Hispi cabbage, brown shrimps and capers; there are also bowls of cassoulet for sharing. Weekly quiz nights come with special 'food for thought' menus.
