Visited for lunch with a couple of fellow first-time mums. Staff couldn't be more thoughtful abs helpful. We had the set menu which was very good value and delicious too. Very family friendly and we felt at ease to breastfeed our babies in the comfortable surroundings.

Really disappointed. 11 of us including children went Sunday lunch, we'd been previously months ago and it was lovely. This time awful. The staff were nice and friendly but the food was not good. - beef and ale pie VERY fatty and tough meat, I asked for a slice of beef to replace and had two slices of very very... More

this is my second visit here for food, and I do like the place. I visited with my parents who were visiting and husband and despite it being very very busy the service was quick and attentive. Our food arrived quickly too and was delicious. My only quibble is it's quite pricy for what you get but ok for a... More

We regularly call in the Prince for drinks but haven't eaten there for a while. On this occasion we called in for drinks but also decided to book a table at the last minute. Although it was busy we got a nice table by the window and ordered from the varied menu. My pate starter was ok but the squid... More

A few years back "The Prince" was principally a drinking pub that also offered good value food. Then in their wisdom, unilaterally and without consulting the regular clientele, Ember Inns decided to change the business and turn it into an up-market food-led establishment.As a former regular and on principle I boycotted the place and only returned today because my daughter...

Embarrassing for service and ourselves when we had to send both mains back as key ingredients were missing - I ordered beef rib with sautéed potatoes,crispy onions and broccoli. I got boiled potatoes and had to ask for broccoli. We also had the prawn, chorizo and crab linguine and had to ask for crab! The pate was really nice but... More

Others on the table we equally impressed by the beef and ale pie! The decor of the recently refurbished pub is lovely and more in... More

The Prince of Wales has a lovely warm atmosphere with the fire and the cosy seating areas. I have eaten here on a few occasions and the food is very nice but it doesn't wow me considering the price. Our last meal there was over £100. If your looking for a nice gastro pub meal in Sheffield, I think there... More
