The restaurant is decorated with paintings related to the last King of Punjab. The King’s tale is historical emanating from colonial times and remains nostalgic. It is this that has inspired the name of the restaurant.

“The Black Prince Pub and Grill , is the story of the last King of Panjab. Duleep Singh who was the last Maharaja, of the Empire of Panjab. He was born on September 6, 1838, in Lahore, which was then the capital of his empire. After his father’s death in 1839, Duleep Singh became the Maharaja at the age of just five.

However, his reign was short-lived, as the British East India Company invaded Panjab in 1845 and annexed it in 1849. Duleep Singh was then taken as a prisoner of war along with his mother and other family members. In 1850, he was sent to England to live with Queen Victoria as a ward of the British government. He was educated in England the maharaja was very fond of hunting and hosting events and is  credited with bringing north Indian style flavours and food to England”, says the restaurant site.

The restaurant, has a large space to catch live sports action with family and friends. In addition to sport, live performances from artists and performers are organised for exciting evenings and weekends. A stage, loud music and capacity of 101 makes it a perfect venue to hold an event.
