I went there for a special birthday lunch it is a favourite of the host i can understand why, tucked away off the beaten track unless of course you have other reasons to drive through Hoath the whole place is set out for people to eat, inside and out the tables chairs are comfortable and smart giving you a very...

Love this fantastic family pub, we have visited for any number of reasons, sunday lunch, just the two of us or a larger family group. booking isn't always essential as they will always try to accommodate you where possible, but if we are going with family or as a group I do always call ahead as it gets busy.

So glad we found this wonderful place during our visit to Canterbury. Food was exceptional, service friendly and prompt, and the atmosphere is festive and homey. Had the two course early dinner--great value! Regular menu and blackboard specials offer good variety. If we lived nearby, this would become a regular favorite eat out spot.

1st time at the Prince of Wales and definitely not the last! Went to one of their special afternoons, and had a wonderful meal while listening to an amazing soul singer JD. Food was brilliant and the staff fun but professional. The food is London restaurant quality while remaining at Kent prices, and the chef (Steve) who we had the... More

We fancied a change from a takeaway last Friday and on the off chance for a meal popped in. Although the restaurant was full we were offered a table in the bar. Very friendly, cheerful staff who were very busy but couldn't do enough for us. The service was superb as was the food, (beer wasn't too bad either!). The... More

We had lunch at the Prince of Wales whilst visiting an elderly relative in Herne Bay. The food was very tasty and came promptly, the serving staff were cheery and helpfully accommodated some special requests for the meal. A very nice little pub, well worth a visit.

Popped in as we were camping down the road but this is my all time favourite pub which is why we chose the campsite nearby! Was very busy on saturday night with everyone sitting inside or out enjoying their meals. Gorgeous pub, comes into it's own during winter with cosy log fires and mulled wine. But the food, well. So,... More
