Lodged in on a cozy corner in an affluent enclave of Hackney, The Prince Arthur didn’t need psychic abilities to predict that a sweet little pub with excellent food would do well here. And boy, do well it does. As charming a pub as you’ll find, The Prince Arthur mixes the traditional with the contemporary, peppering itself with heavy wooden tables, sparkling brass and stuffed animals to create a jaunty scene to surround its horseshoe bar.

Approach it with a squint and you might this could appear to be the hub of some chummy English village. Inside, and minus the squint, the atmosphere would back that up. Filled with a genial sort of crowd who appear to like their local gastro whilst not liking it so much that you can’t too. A more mature port of call than a lot of the other popular pubs in the area there’s certainly a charm to what brothers Tom and Ed Martin have done with the place.

The Sunday roast is excellent here but for more chance of finding a table, weekday evenings are advised. The burger is without doubt one of the best pub-patties around and there’s no going wrong with the aged steak or the classic fish and chips. It also boasts a well-selected stock of bottled beers that include Meantime brews and less commercial world lagers to go along with Almstel and Heineken on draught. The wine starts from around £14.50 a bottle, which like the price of the food, is a little on the steep side. Forget about the complaints about the rather high prices and The Prince Arthur does little wrong and remains a splendid little pub.

My only problem with the Prince Arthur is the ambiance that comes with the nighttime. Or rather, lack of...

Please dim the lights! Aside from that, it's a great pub. Good food (pricey), friendly staff and a beautifully simple interior.

Dim those lights...

This is the perfect little local. It has a comfy and warm atmosphere, great service, and nice people working here. Sunday afternoons here go all to quickly... The roasts are particularly good too.
