Transit: The Prince of Wales is located on the Upper Richmond Road in Putney, we are equal distance (200m) from both East Putney (district line) tube station and Putney main line overground station. We also have a strong relationship with an excellent/competitive local Taxi company to help take you home late if you wish.
Description: The Prince of Wales ��� located in the Upper Richmond Road in Putney ��� is a brilliantly chic and contemporary British boozer. The restored nineteenth century facade belies the gastropub's stylish and cosy interior, and the light-filled dining room is always busy with a creative young crowd. The Prince of Wales menu boasts rustic traditional English dishes such as the crispy pig, dandelion and apple salad; lamb fritters with caper relish; hare and potato pie for two; and beer battered haddock with pea pur��e, tartare sauce and chips. Perfect for long, lazy Sunday lunches and nights out with friends, the restaurant at The Prince of Wales is a welcome addition to the Putney pub scene.

“Excellent. Looking on the other reviews, was a just lucky?”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

Went there with my family and had a saturday lunch. We all had a really good meal.

I can highly recommend the bloody mary oyster starter (appetiser). I bought two and thought they were top class. Really an odd mix but the chef had spiced them to perfection - not too spicy to overtake the oyster itself. Wow.

The other more traditional dishes was also really good - burger etc.

You pay a bit more than the normal pub. But what did you expect in a gastro pub? I will for sure return and just hope it wasnt a fluke considering some of the other reviewers only gave average feedback?

So as a summary, some excellent dishes served.

“Nice Local Pub”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

We had fish and chips, venison and blueberry sandwich, banger and mash, and chicken and mushroom pie, all were very good. The service was good and enjoyed just sitting back watching the locals. Nice selection on tap!

“Gastropub with great environment, well cooked food and delightful service”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

The whole experience worked well. Clearly a popular venue for drinkers on the terrace and in the front room, and for diners in the well-appointed back room with view through to the kitchen which is always a good sign. The food was well cooked and tasty (fish and chips, lamb) and the puds excellent. Service is delightful, friendly and prompt, even when the place was full up!

“Lovely local gastro boozer.”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

A proper pub with great food at the bar and in the restaurant. Consistent standards of service and quality over many years even though I think it's now part of a small chain.

I really don't understand the comments about rude staff. They all were very helpful. There was a small mistake by the kitchen where a dish wasn't served with the "grilled potatoes" as advertised but that was rectified quickly.

Lots of inventive cooking, flavours as well as normal offerings for the less adventurous.

£90 per couple including lots of wine, 2 courses a couple of deserts, coffee's and pints. Bargain!
