Taking pride along Lea Bridge Road and overlooking the River Lea, The Princess of Wales is a gem of a pub. You’ll find this dog-friendly local a short walk from Lea Bridge station. With a beautiful beer garden that’s perfect for lazy Sundays, an ample beer and wine selection, plus the best menu in Clapton, there’s no better place to while away the day in the heart of Hackney. Chef David’s menus feature innovative, homegrown recipes, and the bar team love nothing more than to mix up phenomenal cocktails.

You’ll always get a friendly welcome from Aura and her magnificent team who look forward to welcoming you soon.
