Taking pride of place along Lea Bridge Road, overlooking the River Lea, The Princess of Wales is a gem not to be missed.

With a beautiful beer garden, perfect for lazy summer Sunday’s, an ample beer and wine selection and the best menu in Clapton, featuring innovative, homegrown recipes – there’s no better place to be. It’s a home away from home, giving you the feeling of being in the idyllic countryside, rather than the heart of Hackney!

We are pleased to be taking part in the Eat Out To Help Out promotion, Monday to Wednesday throughout August. You can enjoy 50% off food and non-alcoholic drinks up to a value of £10 per person. Not only will this apply to our a la carte menu, but also our brand new and delicious seasonal specials which include Fruits de Mer and dressed crab. Book your table and we’ll socialise responsibly together this summer!

Come by soon, get yourself a glass of something cold, sit by the River Lea in the sunshine and thank your lucky stars for unearthing the wonder that is the Princess of Wales.
