My husband and I booked a New Year special offer - 2 course dinner and a glass of wine for 2 people for £19.95. Not only was the food great value but also clearly of quality and really tasty. We would not hesitate to go back. The service was excellent and staff very friendly. I would definitely recommend this pub... More

Was quite disappointed with the food at The Prince of Wales. I had been there a few times in the past and it has always been great, however times have changed. I ordered the fillet steak, and at £18 I was expecting something a little special. What I got was the steak on a plate with a tomato and mushroom... More

But I should of stayed at home, the bar and restaurant were empty, there was no music. And the staff were... More

We have visited the PofW regularly for many years and a number of times over the festive period. We love it's position and ambiance but something has happened just recently which, on occasions, affects the experience. The food has, at times, been a step up compared to the previous ownership, but on certain days it has been poor and we... More

This is my preferred 'go to' local restaurant and never ever disappoints. It is, however, always wise to book ahead because the restaurant is invariably fully booked. The menu is varied and interesting and offers something for everyone; the steaks are tender, beautifully cooked and the home made pies are really special! The plated food is beautifully prepared and always... More

Lived close to this pub for years and always regularly visit. The recent deals have been fantastic value for money. The service was great, and food was lovely.

We had not been out to this pub for 6 years so did not know how much it might have changed. We had taken up an offer of Three course meal for two with a drink for £29:99. The pub has hardly changed from what we could see any very little change to the menu as well . The waitresses... More
