Great service! Great food! Great company! Thank you for everything!
Last night I had a great meal and some equally fab wine at The Princess Victoria. The dining room was a bit understaffed so service was slow but still really good. The staff on the floor really worked hard. No their fault that managment can't sort out staffing numbers. In fact we gave some extra tips just because everyone worked so hard. This is my local so it is kind of like with a footie team, you support it and it is fabulous. Small things however seems to go wrong. Last time half of the items on my plate were missing. Now the staffing. Somehow they make it up as a whole. One little crack and they compensate in other ways. There's always a good atmosphere and the food is always better than just 'good pub food.' Staff always have a great attitude and aptitude. They are good at getting the detail right when you ask for substitutes or adjustments. All in all this is a great place to dine and drink. I'm a fusspot that wants everything perfect but life is not like that nor are pubs. The Princess Victoria comes very close though!
I have visited the Princess Victoria on occasions. This time we came with friends for an impromptu roast dinner. We booked for 5pm and they were able to accommodate. There was no roast chicken left despite them being open for food until 9pm. Friend ordered beef instead. Food enjoyed by all. I had nut roast - last time it was slightly curried in flavour and was very tasty. This time it has changed to a recipe full of walnuts. Tasted better with old recipe in my opinion, but I enjoyed the rest of my meal. Cauliflower cheese could be a bit hotter. Manager seems friendly. Other staff didn't seem to notice our table much. Took 10 mins to take drinks order despite the restaurant area not being full. They didn't seem as friendly as the manager. Great selection of gins. Reasonably priced dinner for 4. Will still return for sure. I enjoy visiting this pub - great decoration and love that dogs are allowed.
I have not been in a while and with fond memories of great food I suggested visiting friends that we should have dinner there. Before I start on the food I'd like to compliment the service. Both the drinks staff and the food waitress were impeccable in their approach. At least to my taste. Warm and lightbeared. The food however was a let down. My first and second choice was sold out. At 8Om on a Friday. This is early in a dinnerservice for two item to be sold out on a quite small menu. Bad planning from the kitchen. Receiving my third choice main half of it was missing. No sharlottes or artichoke had not added mash to my chicken main I would have been left with a chicken breast with a tea spoon of mushroom and two tea spoons of crispy kale. The chicken was also very dry. As this was a treat from my friends for me putting them up for a few days and I was very tired after 11 hrs of work I didn't want to cause a scene. I would have if I would have opened my mouth last night as I was too tired. That is why I am writing this now. My guests seemed happy with their choices so that was important to me. You have my feedback here. A real dissappointment. They need to sort their kitchen out. Get the planning right.
Having grown up next to this pub and my mum still living next to it, it has always been close to my heart, the food is excellent and the atmosphere and gin selection superb, my only disappoint is some times, especially at the bar and sometimes in the restaurant it is apparent as to who they want in this pub and who they do not and I have found that frustrating very frustrating, I hope the pub does not forget it is located next to a council estate and those people have the same rights to buy a drink in this pub as anyone else, I drink in there every QPR match day and we dine as 7 people monthly so it is not like we are not contributing to the success of this establishment less so than anyone else.
Reserved a table through the website and received a pop-up notification telling me to call if I wanted to reserve an outside table, so I called and did that. Once at the pub, I ended up asking the manager (without knowing he was the manager) if we did get the outside table reserved, to which he replied in a quite rude way saying that outside tables can't be reserved. We then went outside and chose a random empty table, but another waiter, Ben, came to us and asked if it was me he talked to on the phone. I said yes and he proceeded to show us our table which had a reservation plaque with our time slot on it. He was very kind throughout the whole evening, very fun and apologetic. Altogether, food was very good (although one pizza was a bit burnt – but it also came quite late) and, manager aside, service was very good.
Seems to have gone downhill unfortunately. Service was pretty bad - we were largely ignored, even though servers were walking back and forth by our table. We waited 30 minutes for them to clear our plates, and they only did when we waved someone over and specifically asked one of the waitresses. Then she didn’t offer dessert or bring the menu over, until again, we waved and specifically asked. At that point, she pulled a face at us. The food was fine for adults, but not for the kids. Mini-sausages were so small that my 7 year old daughter was hungry and we had to ask for more. I was sure to say that they were for my daughter, but annoyingly, they arrived as a bar snack, in a (hot) mini-saucepan and covered in mustard. So we sent those back and again reiterated that they were for my daughter. The second lot arrived without the mustard but still in the saucepan. Similarly, we ordered the kids steamed vegetable - instead we got a mini-saucepan of roasted adult veg, including cabbage and parsnip. I indicated that that was not what was on the menu and the response was “yeah they’re roasted”. There was no substitute offered and we were charged for them despite not eating them. I paid the bill in full as well as service because it was woefully obvious that the staff were just not up to dealing with expressions of dissatisfaction. I felt that had I raised any of this to them, there would have been more face-pulling and blank looks. I won’t be going back despite this having been a local that was well-loved for 10 years.
