Sunday lunch - starter of antipasti board was very pleasant. Main - roast beef. The beef was chewy and not medium rare as I asked. Only two roast potatoes, each the size of a golf ball. The veg was good, although a touch bland as was the yorkshire pudding. I couldn't eat the meat as it was too chewy. When I mentioned this as our plates were collected (I sandwiched in a compliment over their homemade horseradish sauce) I was told, 'well you have eaten it', to which I pointed out over half the meat was left. I was then told, 'you're friends have eaten it', to which my friend commented that it wasn't inedible, just rather unpleasant. In fairness I was offered a free dessert but after the argumentative response the mood was soured and it was time to move on......

Service is appalling! Last week I booked a table for 16 people for dinner on Saturday night. Over the phone I was given the option for us to be seated in the restaurant or the bar. Having been to the Prince Bonaparte before and seen diners seated at large tables in the front bar before I opted for the bar area. Saturday night came around and we arrived at 7pm to be shown to five tiny round tables (for 16 people??) that had been pushed together along a wall and told we could order at the bar. Given this was a special occasion, I spoke to the restaurant manager who simply said all the other tables were fully booked and we would have to deal with it. An hour later after we had all lined up at the bar to order our food and 10 of us could be seated around the tiny tables, I noticed that 6 of our party were forced to stand as there was no room. Then although it would have been nice to have eaten together the food arrived in dribs and drabs over the space of 2 hours. After observing this I asked the restaurant manager if this booking was for 16 people? She said it was and then when I asked where the 6 people who were standing were meant to sit she exploded and told me I was being totally unreasonable! Suffice to say that all 16 of us were extremely shocked and disappointed with the service of this place and will not be returning or recommending it to anyone!

Sweet! Welcome back to the Bonaparte. I used to drink here in the mid to late nineties and recently heard the guys behind The Masons Arms had taken it over, so i had to have a look.
Three ales on tap, friendly staff ... and i knew there had to be a chandalier or two in there somewhere!
The food was a bit pricey for my wallet but i was assured that a bar menu would be in place shortly. And the prices clearly weren't putting people off, the dining room was packed.
I also saw quite a few familiar faces from 'the Kensals' scattered about the place checking out their old stomping ground.
All in all i think they've done a good job. Its pitched to local spending power but i'll certainly being popping in and every now and again.

Went to the PB last night for friend's birthday. It was particularly busy, but then you expect that for a pub in this location on a Saturday evening. I thought the selection of beers was fantastic - a few friends deciding to get stuck into the pink Fruli. I recommend the food - the 10oz beef burger came with the kitchen sink and even for a big eater - it was a struggle to consume! The bar staff were helpful and attentive in the most part. The patrons were a bit la de da - but not generically too pretentious to cause aggrevation. All in all a decent venue with warm and bustling astmosphere.
