Princess Victoria Reopens This Friday, 20 October at Midday
Welcome return of Uxbridge Road pub after shock closure in summer
Uxbridge Road gastropub the Princess Victoria will reopen its doors this Friday, 20 October, at midday.
The pub has been taken over by the Three Cheers Pub Co, which announced the imminent opening on its Twitter account with the message: " She's almost ready for you."
Local customers were shocked when they previous owner, Affinity Bars and Restaurants suddenly closed the pub saying it was not expected to reopen "for the foreseeable future".
Since then however, the new owners have been working to rejuvenate the Victorian pub, introducing a new front terrace in addition to the existing courtyard garden.
The site will now accommodate 150 people downstairs, as well as a first floor function room seating 70, and 95 seats outside.
On its website, the pub's owners say: " One of the original gin palaces built in 1829, the elegant Princess Victoria has recently undergone an extensive refurbishment to become a truly beautiful public house.
"The handsome horseshoe bar offers over 100 artisan and big name gins, 40 craft beers and real ales plus an exceptional wine list. There is also a spectacular dining room, stunning private party room as well as a new heated front terrace and rear courtyard garden.
"Food focuses on the best ingredients using small producers from across the British Isles. Chicken and pork is free range, beef is aged in-house and fish is sourced sustainably from English day boats off the south coast.
"Come and see what we’ve done with the place."
The Princess Victoria will be the ninth site to be operated by the pub group, which up till now has concentrated on pubs south of the river in areas such as Clapham and Battersea.
