West Brompton is mainly known for its cemetery…there isn’t much going on. You don’t go to West Brompton for the great restaurants or the rooftops. That is, until now. Because West Brompton might have had to wait, but as they say patience is a virtue, and that patience is being rewarded with The Prince.
A whole street transformed into an epicurean avenue. A whole street.
Taking over the former Prince of Wales pub and the four disused connecting buildings on Lillie Road, The Prince is brought to you by the team behind Pergola on the Roof and Pergola Paddington Central, so you know it’s going to be good. It’ll be made up of two bars, four restaurants and a huge secret garden all connected and all under the guise of The Prince.
To eat you can choose from Patty & Bun, The Begging Bowl, Rabbit and MAM and just like that from not having much to write home about in terms of restaurants, Lillie Road now has four. The former Prince of Wales pub will be transformed into a double-level bar, it’s going to be all timber, exposed brickwork, dark blues and brass lights. There’ll be space for up to 600 guests and if you’re booking a party then you get free bookings for up to 199 people! At the back of each restaurant and the bar you’ll find a small door, go through the door and you’ll find a secret woodland crowned with a bespoke pergola. Look out on the top deck over the enchanted garden before descending down to the bar wrapped round the vast, twisted willow tree. Paths will lead to hidden tables and private cabins and a retractable roof will mean that you can drink outside all year round.
The Prince: Opens 15th November, 14 Lillie Road, West Brompton, SW6 1TT, www.theprincelondon.com
