Description: The Prince of Wales ��� located in the Upper Richmond Road in Putney ��� is a brilliantly chic and contemporary British boozer. The restored nineteenth century facade belies the gastropub's stylish and cosy interior, and the light-filled dining room is always busy with a creative young crowd. The Prince of Wales menu boasts rustic traditional English dishes such as the crispy pig, dandelion and apple salad; lamb fritters with caper relish; hare and potato pie for two; and beer battered haddock with pea pur��e, tartare sauce and chips. Perfect for long, lazy Sunday lunches and nights out with friends, the restaurant at The Prince of Wales is a welcome addition to the Putney pub scene.

The pub is nicely laid out in different rooms and levels, it has a really nice relaxed feel to it. The staff were excellent giving both a friendly and professional service. I had roast lamb which was perfectly cooked and we shared 8 taster deserts presented on a slate which were all yummy too.

The good itself wasn't bad, but the the service wasn't great and we weren't allowed to request how we wanted our steaks because the chef was busy?!. Also they ran out of both ales within 30 min of arriving - so overall not a great experience.

The food was decent enough, but a couple of months later I can't even remember what I had which means it wasn't very memorable. It's not cheap either, save your pennies and go to Roxie in Putney instead for steak.

This is known as a great place to dine, and we will be back, disappointing was my wife's and friends steak was cold. It had been cooked without enough time out of the fridge. We were the first diners and so can understand how it happened. I'd normally say something but due to the situation didn't seam appropriate. Chips were... More

Food was good value (for London) but fairly basic pub fair. The beer was reasonably priced and there was a good choice of ales. Fair mix of tourists/locals.

Although we've lived in Putney for over 2 years, this is our first time to the Prince of Wales - but won't be our last. Nice spacious dining room, very clean, well decorated and an open kitchen for chef-spotting! I had quail to start with - nicely cooked and really prettily presented. My companion has crab - again, well cooked... More

Been here a few times. Mainly for weekday lunch. Always has a good pub menu and service has been friendly and prompt. Has a spot outside if you are keen for outside dining.

Was ok, would rate it above any other pub, baring in mind there is a nandos a roxies just up the road, I would expect both better food, and better staff, as competition up that road is rife

Interesting food - cheese very greasy with chicken & bacon. Good chips and nice coffee. Service friendly. Lipstick on coffee cup questioned but it wasn't mine, waitress quickly changed it. Would go back - decent food, not expensive, but same didn't apply to beverages& beer which were expensive

So many things were great about this place except the most important part, the food. Lovely decor; nice vibey pub area with lots of people having drinks after work (although restaurant is much quieter in the back); good location between putney rail and east putney tube station; service was friendly, efficient and attentive. The menu was interesting with a lot... More
