The Princess Victoria is an excellent pub. Located on a rather drab windswept section of the Uxbridge road, this former Victorian gin palace has been transformed in a stunning gastropub which somehow manages to achieve excellent food without the pretension of many pubs-turned-restaurants.
You can dine in the restaurant or - less formally - in the bar area. Either way the food is great. It's also the kind of place you always seem to bump into someone you know, and haven't seen in a ages.
If you don't believe me, read this article in the Daily Mail by local foodie Tom Parker-Bowles.
Parking is easy, and there are plenty of buses that go up and down Uxbridge Road.
