The Princess Victoria pub in Kensington has had a complete refurb and transformed into The Holland, with a pub on the ground floor, a dining room upstairs, and Max de Nahlik (ex-Duke of Cambridge and co-founder of pop-up Oxalis) taking care of the food across both areas. The new look includes sage green walls, exposed brick and emerald tiles lining the repurposed floorboard bar in the pub and more reclaimed furniture up in the dining room. As well making use of upcycled materials for the interiors, there’ll be no single-use plastics on site either and Max is working with food suppliers who have strong ethical and sustainable creds, including The Ethical Butcher, Henderson’s and Wildfarmed.

As well as traditional roasts on Sundays, his menu includes dishes like:

  • spiced brown crab on toast
  • tomatoes with peach, chilli, pangrattato & smoked tofu
  • pork collar steak with greengage chutney, kohlrabi & beetroot
  • hake with piperade & fennel salad
  • almond tart with double cream

And if you just want to pop in for drinks, there’s a mostly European wine list starting at a fiver a glass and £20 a bottle, and a regularly rotating selection of cask ales on offer too. Sounds like W8 peeps have got a great new local.
