Named after Queen Victoria’s second son, this princely spot has been a favourite with those seeking a traditional pub serving fine food and drink since 1851. Prince Alfred occupies a Grade II listed building and boasts a homely ground floor bar with a cosy fireplace and soft lighting. Head upstairs and discover the sofa bar, where socialising and drinking go hand in hand – it’s a great space for hosting private parties and special get-togethers too.
If dining, you can pull up a pew and order the likes of cottage pie, Lincolnshire sausages and mash, or a rack of ribs served with chips and rainbow slaw from the menu that’s filled with traditional fare. Delicious meat pies, hearty burgers and sandwiches all make an appearance, and the sharer board is the ideal snack to share with friends. Why not pair your meal with a glass of seasonal wine or a signature gin cocktail? Guests can watch the sun go down and the happenings of cosmopolitan Bayswater from the outside seating area.
The weekly live music events are a hit with the crowds and the homely, welcoming feel of the Prince Alfred makes guests feel at ease. All of this explains why the pub’s been winning over locals and visitors for over a century.
