Prince Alfred - Bayswater

The Prince Alfred has been on Queensway since 1851 (which is far longer than anyone can remember), and has become a firm favourite for local residents and tourists alike.

A traditional menu is available all day and a large selection of drinks make the Prince Alfred a fantastic home from home.

Review analysis

We arrived 5 minutes after our booked time slot and we were told to wait at the bar as our table was not ready.Once sat down it took far too long to take our order, much attention was paid to the couple next to us instead.

The food took 30 minutes to get to our table which is far too long.

Once finished eating we waited 20 minutes for our plates to be cleared and even then I had to catch the ladies eye before she actually realised our plates were still in front of us.

She cleared two of our plates and then stopped to serve the couple next to us a bottle of wine?!

We were felt extremely unwelcome at a local pub of mine that I was sharing with friends.

No, not a workhouse filled with criminal orphans, but something much nicer than that – a Victorian pub, complete with spectacularly intricate carved woodwork and ‘snob screens’ separating the different sections of the bar.

The low doorways between them are a nightmare if you've got a bad back, but perfect if you're very short and need to escape a pub bore.

It sort of helps that the Prince Alfred is a Young's pub instead of some chichi craft beer palace – it's simple, old fashioned, no nonsense.

Peanuts, yup.

Pint of bitter, yup.
