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 autumnal 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!

The Six Nations are back and we’re excited to be showing the remainder of the games live! Book your table now to ensure the best seats in the house. Ahead of your visit, download our Young’s On Tap app to order food and drink to your table, so you won’t miss a minute of the action! Scrum on down…

With a fantastic team delivering a mouth-watering selection of festive dishes, hot alcoholic drinks, classic cocktails and all-round Christmassy atmosphere, we’re the perfect place to celebrate.
