The Prince of Wales Feathers is a cute little pub with high tables and leather sofas, stained-glass windows, polished wood and colourful fabrics next to Warren Street tube station.
You can chose between a main (burger, salad, large plate or even a big platter) or several small plates. We decided to pick five small plates (for £20): A stout-cured salmon, roast spiced cauliflower, potted smoked chicken and duck rillette, salt & pepper squids and pan-fried chorizo. Deserts include chocolate brownie and blackcurrant curd eton mess. Dinner was washed with a bottle of merlot.
You might think that five small plates would not be enough for two people, but the portion size was perfect and we definitely had enough. The pan-fried chorizo was deliciously spicy, the salt & pepper squid beautifully crunchy and the stout-cured salmon perfectly smoky. Those were favourites, very tasty. The roast spiced cauliflower dish was amazingly fragrant. The rillette was more a liver pâté but it was definitely home made and very nice, tasty and smooth with the sourdough bread. All went down rather well with the wine. For desert, the brownie was perfectly balanced with the vanilla pod on top. The eton mess was lacking the meringue and the fresh fruits, but for the whipped cream lover I am, that was not a tremendous issue. The cream was really well perfurmed by the subtle blackcurrant curd, without becoming overpowerly sweet. Really lovely.
In conclusion, the prince of wales feathers is a decent pub with very friendly, helpful and welcoming staff. It is one to go to: great atmosphere and great food, good portions and a big variety. I highly recommend you go and have a try.
