Second re-launch in under a year for the old Prince of Wales, so will The Prince last longer than Harlem? On the basis of our visit it's probably got a chance. 'Gastro pub and club' this one's calling itself. We can't vouch for the 'club' but the 'gastro' part of the equation was pretty good, with a menu that didn't stray into the world of ostrich steak or an amuse of fennel. Little of note on tap, drink options include a long list of shooters and cocktails. There's big plans for this one (including talk of a private members bar), so we'll keep an eye on it and see how things pan out (can things really get that swish with a KFC next door?). For the moment though, worth a look.

Under new management since March 2011 this new breed of local pub, The Prince, on Brixton Road, only moments from the tube and train stations, combines stylish restaurant class with the warm, relaxing welcome of a traditional pub. Since its latest incarnation with its emphasis on food (with the added bonus of a late licence), The Prince has quickly gained a reputation as a place to be, a Brixton meeting place where guests are treated to something special, from a delectable feast served with a smile to a perfectly poured beer and a chat with the friendly staff. A very British setting, right down to the Vivienne Westwood wallpaper, The Prince feels fashionable but unpretentious. The setting is also inspired by the food, also ever so British, but in a very Brixton way - the very best of artisan suppliers providing high quality produce to be used in a menu full of GB flavour but with influences from further afield, flirtations with Hispanic flavours, splashes of North African spice, a touch of Caribbean soul. Serving all day from brunch until late, The Prince really does offer a genuinely exciting dining experience suited to any occasion.

And lets say a thing about Brixton - Not at all what you would imagine. This very up and coming area is very much the place to be.

Ate here over the bank holiday weekend and the food was fantastic. Really nice decor and ambient vibe (chilled music playing, candles and flowers on tables)with pleasent staff and a decent selection of lagers and wines. Cocktails were also available as was a single real ale.

Looks a bit pretentious from the outside but really a nice and cozy place, newspapers and magazines available inc Private Eye, National Geographic along with all the sunday newspapers mags so we found it very easy to waste away a bank holiday sunday.
