Comfortable Sunday lunch at the Prince of Wales

Lovely pub, nice food, great garden. Just had Sunday lunch there. Will go back - a very pleasant afternoon spent with friends. What more could you ask for?

We chose the Prince of Wales to have our retirement party as we felt it was the perfect venue to celebrate with our family and friends. The party started around 4 pm and we all tucked into hog roast, salad and roast potatoes which was absolute fabulous. Marc Carol and all their team did us proud and everyone had a... More

Four of us went today and had a great lunch time meal. The fillet steak was great as was the prawn starter and the lemon tart to finish. The service was as good as always. The restaurant was bussing. It always seems to be very busy and the staff are fantastic. One of very best eating houses.

This pub/restaurant is located in a quiet village outside Herne Bay. The ambience is perfect for a country pub, the food is very good and well presented. Width a visit.

my wife and I took the old MGBGT out for a drive to the North Kent coast and stumbled across this delightful pub by chance. How lucky we were. We hadn't booked but the staff were wonderful and settled us into a table with no fuss. Menu looked great and my wife went for the beer battered cod and chips.... More

The Prince of Wales if definitely worth a visit for either lunch or dinner. The food is excellent with a good range of options. The service and atmosphere are also really good. I've been several times and it has always been really good.

We have eaten at this pub/restaurant before and the food is usually very good. However, last night I chose slow cooked pork belly from the Specials board. When it arrived, it looked ok served with roasted vegetables and 'rustic' roast potatoes (this means unpeeled). The piece of pork was tough, dry and extremely chewy - not at all what I... More

Lovely pub with enough space to enable your group/party to enjoy their visit. Our group visited for Sunday Lunch and had a rather mixed experience. The staff were very friendly and attentive enough so that you knew they were their for you if needed. I did however leave the pub a little disappointed by the quality of the roasts that... More

An evening meal was booked for ten of us. We received a warm welcome from the manager and his staff. Our table was ready and, as we'd hoped, we were all able to sit together. Even though we were within the main area, it seemed quite private. There was a great ambiance and the whole place had a cosy, 'olde... More

We had not booked on a Sunday lunch-time. Everything very, very good. We were given a table on the proviso, that we would leave it clear one and a half hours later. No problem. Staff were brilliant and very attentive, seemed very well trained. Food was lovely. Kentish beer very good.
