I was joined in the evening by my work colleagues and we drank a couple of locally brewed real ales from Maldon and Brentwood. We... More

I stayed overnight here Saturday evening. The pub is a very traditional cosy country pub with real log fire. The room I stayed in was the yellow room. It was warm and very clean and comfortable. The only reason the BUT is in my heading is that the brass bed is extremely squeaky and could do with some oil! The... More

We go to the Prince every year for wine tasting and a meal. We have never been disappointed and this year was better than ever. Cannot fault Rob and his staff who are friendly and do a super job. If you haven't visited, you must give it a try, you will not be disappointed.

I want to say a huge thank you to Rob Walster and all his staff at the Prince of Wales. We had an awesome time camping at the Prince of Wales' field just further on from the car park. Food was fabulous at the pub as were the staff, and the regulars who drink there. A fantastic break, great weather... More

Staff could of been better especially a blonde women. She was so rude. I would not recommend going in there as the staff seem to be drinking wine constantly. The rooms were lovely and clean and the food was brilliant. The blonde older women let it down terribly

I stayed here as it was in close proximity to a friends wedding. The place was well decorated, clean and the staff were very very friendly. Breakfast was included and was more than enough food. I would definitely recommend this place
