My friend is a vegetarian and on their website there were a few lovely sounding options but tonight all she could have was risotto or vegetable curry, she chose the curry and the vegetables (green peppers, butternut squash and something else?) were raw so all she...

Myself and my fiancé had a lovely meal here this evening. Currently they have a deal on for 3 courses, a bottle of wine and a glass of prosecco for 2 for £30. This was a deal that was too good to miss! The food was delightful, each course presented perfectly and it was not rushed at all. The staff... More

I visited the Prince of Wales with 3 friends. There was a great choice of food. I don't eat meat but found plenty to choose from. We all found the food delicious. The staff were very friendly. Would highly recommend.

We went for lunch and had some really good food, the service was nice and friendly and timely. There were four of us for lunch and we all had different meals, all of which we extremely tasty and well cooked. The only thing that marred the meal slightly was that the restaurant could have been a bit warmer, but certainly... More

An Enchanting Gastro pub in Hoath, An outstanding Country Pub with superb Home cooked food. Sitting by the open Log Fire on a cold evening was a warm relaxing experience. The staff were welcoming and the food superb. ( Not over priced). Hops hanging from the ceiling added to the cozy feel. If you want to relax and have Good... More

This is a great local pub. Beautifully decorated with traditional hops. Always a homely feeling and genuine staff. The food is the best around and at a reasonable price. Deserts are to die for. Although we always come here and stuff our faces we will always wait until there is room for some banoffee pie! Well worth a trip into... More
