Excellent, no nonsense pub with loads of charm and well priced good food. Very friendly staff are also a massive bonus. Make sure you stop here for a swift Ledbury dark at the very least.

On our first visit to Ledbury we were delighted to find this wonderful pub hidden away off the High Street. Whilst surrounded by locals in the bar we felt very comfortable and welcome which is not always the case when one "intrudes" into a small pub. The landlord is to be commended on running such a friendly, welcoming pub. The... More

We made 2 visits to this lovely pub while staying in Great Malvern and visiting Ledbury for the day. It is well situated in a very attractive historic area of the town. We got a friendly welcome from the barman who was very knowledgeable about the different real ales that the pub stocks. We were amazed by the range of... More

We had lunch here the other day.The place is very old and atmospheric. Great choice of real ales and proper cider. Generous portions of food - the faggots are the size of cannon balls, not for the faint-hearted! Crispy chips. Lots of mature cheese in the ploughman's (though a bit too much salad with it for my taste)

This old fashioned (in a good way) pub oozes warmth and friendliness. Toby the barman and the rest of the staff are friendly and welcoming as are the regular clientele so that strangers going in for the first time need not feel out of place. Some places you go into , you just have a quick drink and go but... More

Stopped at the Prince of Wales for a snack lunch today. No wonder it's Herefordshire Camra Pub of the Year, beautiful beers, excellent cheesy chips, lovely convivial atmosphere and a real pro of a landlord. Well done.

Booked in advance and glad we did. Very busy as you would expect for Mothering Sunday. Great drinks to start with, you need to try the Ledbury Dark, then we had roast lamb. Delicious dinner, very large plate full. Tender lamb with all the trimmings. Too full for a dessert. Service was very good. Lovely old pub.

Popped in while visiting Ledbury. Heartened to see such a good choice of real ales. Had a lovely pint and a plate of faggots and mash and the dog was welcome too. Would go back again and definitely recommend it

It's my second time here, and I just had to return. Real ales, and quality lagers, this is a real gem of a pub.
