Golden Age Public Houses is an independent pub group headed up by Leo Walton and Pat Marling. Via a chance meeting through mutual friends back in 2012, Leo and Pat’s connection grew stronger through a shared desire to revitalise, renovate and re-launch iconic British pubs from the Edwardian and Victorian eras - the "Golden Age" of Public Houses.
Recognising the fact that too many great pubs are closing or being converted to other uses, our goal is to breathe new life into our sites, providing quality, enjoyment and community spirit for many years to come.
The Prince is a restored Victorian Freehouse in the heart of Stoke Newington, offering a wide selection of locally-sourced craft beers and real ales via 20 individual draught lines and twice as many bottles. We have taken great care in selecting all our wines and spirits, with a large percentage of our range sourced from London-base independents.
Our kitchen team is headed up by Roberto Piaggesi, with our food offer solely focussed on delivering the best quality produce available, cooked with skill and passion - with a keen attention to detail.
The Prince is a family-friendly establishment focussed on delivering quality to the community.

The Royal Oak is located in the heart of Marylebone just minutes walk from Regents Park and Baker Street, focussed on "burgers, beers and good vibrations!" - we collaborate with Burgerac's Burgershack as an ongoing kitchen residency. Formerly operating as The Temperance, the pub was taken back to its original name in July 2014 when it became part of Golden Age Public Houses.
The Royal Oak underwent a full external/internal makeover, approached with care and respect for this famous old building. We have also looked to improve all sides of our offer, and are the only Central London pub (that we know of!) that hosts vinyl DJing from some of London's most respected selectors three-times a week (every Thursday, Friday, Saturday).
