There are more pubs in Stoke Newington than there are exposed ankles. Actually, that’s a lie, but there are a lot. None though have food as good as The Prince. This done-up neighbourhood pub is at the civilized end of things. As in, you’ll be fighting over the last strawberry on the Eton mess, rather than seeing a scrap over the fruity. The space is divided between bar area and dining room, with a menu that’s simple but solid: padron peppers, homemade pies, and a very decent burger, of course.
