Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I am a retired Corporate Banker, who have many friends and ex colleague's in the Banking Sector: We meet bi monthly, usually moaning (believe me, as Bankers always do!) either meeting in the Hitchin area, (Millstream Pub, another McMullens) where colleagues live, or around this...area or Enfield, another mid way between friends. So this was as title, to see whether the 'Prince' might be suitable; we had dined very successfully for all previously, in the Goffs Oak and also the Cricketers in Enfield..just looking for a possible new venue. I had, with my wife and friends, as we live locally a few years ago, attended this attractive Pub, with great gardens in the summer and a good sized car park, very regularly. However at that time the 'Goffs' was revitalised and with many good restaurants relatively nearby, the Two Brewers in Northaw, Judges and the Gables particularly, are all excellent. The 'Prince' also went through a bad patch menu and food wise, so we all 'migrated'. I think in the evenings the Prince of Wales is busier, hope so for their sakes, as arriving at 12.45pm for a lunchtime booking for three of us, I only saw four in the dining area and around about seven in the dining area, including us three. As mentioned, I really like the premises, somewhat darker inside the average pub, but quite well decorated and clean, the air of a traditional pub venue, with a good selection of ales. The 'Lady of the House' I believe initially served us, no complaints there and I noticed they had a brand new menu, which a couple of weeks ago, looking at the website, had changed..for the better I felt! We had, two of us, lovely prawn cocktails, full of prawns and for Mains, the other two had the pie selection..both said delicious and cleared their plates. I had traditional Fish & Chips, with mushy peas, which equally was also very good..too much for me, but packed as a takeaway, I took half for my two West Highland White Terriers, who scoffed the lot later! We had three Coffees after; drinks were an excellent bottle of Red wine, with two pints of Lager and a Gin & Fever Tree tonic..wine was discounted, as I took a 'happy birthday, Prosecco or equivalent' voucher with me. The bill, with tip around £95.00. Good value and a very enjoyable lunch....young lady server..very shy, but very polite and efficient, with a lovely smile..a bit 'woke' to comment perhaps, but worth recording, in these days of Social Media critics, tapping away on keyboards, who really couldn't run the 'proverbial in the brewery'. 'Trip' indicates a circa 3.5 score for client satisfaction..our experience much better than that..S.M. 'Tappers', no doubt!More

Lovely staff. Our burgers were of good quality but the strong flavour of the cheddar overpowered the burger.

Absolutely terrible value for money food. £7.00 for a sandwich which had no garnish and no chips/crisps. The same McMullen’s pub less than 10 minutes away has a much better menu with sandwiches for £6.95 with chips and garnish included! Apparently McMullen’s have decided this...is a “destination pub” which obviously translates as ripping people off. I feel very sorry for the staff who are lovely and the pub garden is wonderful but sadly I won’t be eating there again until they change their menu.More

We’ve been stopping by for a drink or two on Saturday or Sunday. Went here for a meal which was a treat from our son. A bit slap dash here and there. Service was rushed, drinks were slow.

We went here for a night out in a small group of four. We had drinks before dinner and the pub is a very welcoming place for just that. The fireplace creates a cozy atmosphere and the staff were very smiling and accommodating. The pub...is visited by all ages and that makes it even nicer to visit. For dinner we had the shrimp pili pili in garlic (good but I would have liked more garlic actually). One of us had the bread rusted salmon which was made to perfection. Another had the Caesar Salad and it was also fresh and nice. The third person had three dishes from the sharer options and everything was nice. I had the ribeye steak which was fine but not necessarily exceptional. We finished off with a cream brûlée which had a god taste and flavour. Go here if you want a good meal and drinks in a welcoming and professional atmosphere.More

Ordered a vegan burger and my friend ordered a non vegan burger. When the waitress brought the food over they looked similar so we asked which one was the vegan one. She replied “the unappetizing one is the vegan one the one that looks the...most unappetizing” and laughed. Both I and my non vegan friend thought this was very rude and shocked us. She said it again when she brought over the sides and we just couldn’t believe what we were hearing. Such a backward attitude has no place in this day and age and no food vegan or not should be described by a member of staff in that way. Sackable offense in our eyes. Won’t be going back.More

We have driven past this pub quite a lot over time and thought we would try it out. There is plenty of parking, lots of seats outside, and when went in there was a nice selection of seating indoors too. We ordered a mix of...food and the roast was really good, genuinely really tasty and enjoyed it. Only one criticism is that although the staff aren't rude at all, it would have been nice to be welcomed a bit more warmly, and just a conversation of asking how we are etc goes a long way, especially as they weren't even busy, however all our food and drinks were taken and delivered problem free, like I said everyone was fine, but being welcoming and friendly adds a lot to you experience anywhere, especially a local pub. I'm sure we will definitely be returning, its a lovely pub with good food.More

Went here yesterday to celebrate my birthday with family. Service was shocking. Wasn’t very busy and staff were stood around chatting but still took ages to get anything. Waited 20 mins for a straw, kids food was cold. 2 of us were served raw salmon....We were offered an alternative but this meant we were eating ages after the rest of the party. Was offered a bottle of wine as an apology but didn’t want so we asked if we could have money off the bill. We had given the kitchen a birthday cake but they obviously just thought we wanted them to look after it as they showed no initiative to bring it out, even when we asked for the bill. We asked for it back on the way out and there was no apology for having not bothered to bring it over. Really disappointing meal.More

Ordered 2 lattes and two bowls of "triple cooked chips". Came to £13.50, which is absurd regardless of how good they are or aren't, but even worse considering the coffee was luke warm, and the absolutely tiny bowls of chips were bang average frozen chips....Service is poor. Coffees came out spilled all over the napkins and plates they were on. Chips came out without any condiments, napkins or cutlery. Place was virtually empty so no excuses. Just do better.More
