If you asked a trendy Shoreditch local to design a pub, the Princess of Shoreditch is what you’d get - it looks like good boozer, but with a polished East End cool about it. No one’s ever going to mistake it for an old school pub, but really, we doubt anyone will care when the food’s this good. The roasts are a local fixture on Sundays, with good-looking plates of rare beef, lamb, and pork landing on tables at a fair clip. The beer selection’s short but good, the crowd is young and fun, and they have a thing called ‘umami salad’ on the menu, which is probably just a plate of mushrooms in soy sauce. Probably not, actually, but you get the idea.
