Fantastic at lunchtime, slower in the evening

We have eaten there many times at lunchtime and found the food, the service and the prices outstanding. When we tried in the evening, the food was just as good but one of us chose a slow-cooking item which was delicious but delayed the meal for all of us. Nonetheless we are going back again for... read more

as the title suggests, we have been to this venue for lunches and dinners on several occasions. Our last visit was earlier this month for an impromptu lunch. We were welcomed as well as always, and we had a good choice of places to sit. We were served promptly and attentively with all our wants being met. The food was... More

We were looking for a place to take our mothers for a belated Mothering Sunday meal. A friend recommended this pub and online reviews were very promising. I rarely look forward to eating out due to limited choices of what I can consume. So this was a huge shock when not only was the service and food good but it... More

Last Thursday, we had a wonderful meal at the prince of Wales. The three courses were excellent value and tasted absolutely delicious. we strongly recommend the Potato and spinach soup. The staff were friendly and we even met the chef. Thanks to all for a wonderful evening. We cannot wait to return.

Had been here before and had a good experience so decided to return for lunch with my mother. What a contrast! On arrival I ordered drinks but my ale wasn't to my taste so exchanged it for something more familiar (no exchange FOC offered) so paid about £6 for one pint. We only wanted light meals so I ordered a... More

Four for dinner on Sat Feb 28th. Everyone agreed the food and service were superb. Not a surprise really, as we have eaten here many times since we discovered this pub restaurant about 3 years ago and we have never been disappointed.

Just had the most delicious lunch. Everything about The Prince of Wales was superb. It's what I call a real pub - warm and friendly. Could quite easily have stayed all day. My Mum had been a couple of times and had highly recommended it. She was'nt wrong. Will definitely go again when we next visit her from Bromley.

Four of us ate last night in the Prince of Wales. The food was wonderful and the waiter went out of his way to ensure we had an enjoyable evening, thank you. Would recommend this Public House to everyone.
