Visited with the hope of catching a Sunday roast - was told on the phone they were available but on arrival we were told they were no longer being served because things had run out. Slightly disappointing. We chose from the specials board (lamb and stir fry chicken) and these dishes were certainly not disappointing. The portions were very generous... More

Hi Nicky, We are glad you enjoyed the dishes you were served! We are sorry that we set the expectation that you could have a roast dinner. We make all of our food fresh so unfortunately when we have a busier Sunday than expected we can sometimes run out early. I have spoken to our front of house team to... More

Lovely food but No one gave us any greeting and after we waited st the bar for some time a barman apologetically showed us to a table next to an unlit draughty fireplace. We asked to be moved but we were told not possible although we could see plenty of tables that had been cleared. We did not complain further... More

We are really happy to hear you enjoyed the food! We are sorry to hear the rest of your experience was not as great. After seeing this review we have blocked the no longer used fire place to ensure there is no longer a draft. We also recently had an issue with our heating system which may have resulted in... More

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
