Tuesday 03 November 2020....THE PRINCE OF WALES TOWNHOUSE

This press visit happened over a week ago but my tekky guy advised me to not to put it up while he was tweaking my website. The Prince Of Wales Townhouse....press showcase...7pm to 9.30pm... 73 Dalling Road, Hammersmith , London W6. Esher-based brewery operating a small chain of pubs in the south-east. The pub has been renamed from Rook's Nest to Prince of Wales Townhouse. The venue has up to seven cask ales available plus 20+ keg beers and 3 ciders. Their other Big Smoke sites have a good CAMRA reputation so it is hoped in the course of time that this venue will also succeed. The pub has an open kitchen, open brickwork, white tiling, and wood panelling painted green. This used to be a pretty basic working class pub , but the new owners have given it a very nice facelift. The previous customers would mainly be from the nearby Flora Gardens council estate so i presume the new owners would like to keep them and attract a few more of the affluent local flat/house owners. It is by the Ravenscourt Park end of King Street, just two mins from that main drag. Hammersmith Apollo is maybe several minutes walk away and Shepherds Bush Empire is twice that. They also have bed & breakfast accommodation upstairs. We had a very nice three course meal each....this was mine. Starters - Chilli & Garlic King Prawns Mains - House Smoked Baby-Back Pork Ribs with fries & coleslaw Dessert - Sticky Toffee Pudding with Vanilla Ice Cream We had wines and cocktails including espresso martinis and negronis. Well worth a visit if you are in the area. www.princeofwales-townhouse.co.uk Visit their website here for more info.
