Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Prince George

Traditional side-street pub, retaining much of its original layout, including a lounge / dining room behind the main 'L'-shaped bar, what is now a pool room further back and a snug-type alcove beyond that. Imposing bar-back directly opposite the entrance, topped - for no obvious reason - by various stuffed birds and a plaster-cast bust of Brunel. Furniture and decor otherwise pleasantly traditional, and it also has a fair-sized patio beer garden at the front. Four of five handpumps in operation, offering London Pride, Gales Spring Sprinter, Sambrook's Pumphouse Pale and Hackney American Pale Ale (£4.80).

Rex Rattus left this review about The Prince George

The previous reviewer just about says it all. There was essentially a young clientele, with a couple of individuals being far too young at only a few weeks or months old, who very vocally expressed their dissatisfaction with something or other. I've been in other pubs where tots start screaming and seen them taken outside - but not here where we were all made to suffer.

But the pub itself was just fine. The bar counter, some wood panelling including look original Victorian work, but of course it's now completely opened up at the front, with a couple of rooms at the back, one of which provided some sanctuary from the cacophony at the front. Perhaps if one visited at other than a Saturday evening it would be a much quiter and more welcoming place.

Malden man left this review about The Prince George

Surprisingly previously unreviewed on here, this is a rather good back street Victorian pub with the usual boarded flooring, dark stained lower wall panelling and a buoyant ambience on a late Saturday afternoon with few free tables and a mostly 30 something clientele, many accompanied with wailing babies. Framed items included a Fellini poster for La Dolce Vita. There is a nice tiled fireplace with stacked logs. Stuffed birds over the bar, not really something I'm in favour of.
We found a spot of relative calm around the back of the bar where the room returns through an original looking arched doorway, some interesting decor including lots of Brighton related posters and an interesting map of the St John's district of Hackney. If you duck under the stairs here you will discover a small additional room with a pool table.
Two sets of handpumps, Saturday offered Pride, Sambrook's Pumphouse, Gale's Spring Sprinter and Hackney APA.
A lovely old back street boozer which would be even better if the baby noise could be turned off.
