The Princess of Shoreditch

Let me introduce to you the Princess of Shoreditch. This is a fabulous little gastropub tucked just back off Old Street in Shoreditch. I was taken there for a beautiful Sunday roast (thank you, darling é) then went again the next night with the every delightful Miss Finn for yet another fab meal. I think i could eat there every night. In fact, if I lived here I probably would!Warm, cosy, fantastic staff, lovely wine and food to die for. Simple, elegant, full-on flavours. Recently re-furbished by owners Scott Hunter and Maria Larsen, they say "We have a passion for fresh, seasonal food, good wine and friendly, efficient service and our chef Benoit Doutres (Moulin de Mougins), brings a French twist to our Modern British menu." There are two dining areas, downstairs in the pub proper, and upstairs with an a la carte menu. I sat downstairs both times and the atmosphere was beautifully cosy and snug, just divine.
