Another marvellous 2 hour session at the PoW! These are difficult times and the staff really are so polite and helpful. Awesome booze! I’m loving the Wild IPA at the moment, great service and a busy but relaxing atmosphere.

No food because of Covid, but as always the restrictions were clear, upheld and we felt very safe to enjoy our drinks and chat to people in the pub from a distance. The Prince of Wales is a real pub, run by hard working passionate people who have risen to the Covid challenges admirably. Always a pleasure to visit. Great beers and friendly staff, as well as friendly welcoming punters, real fires and dog friendly too.

Nice to see the pub back in operation and coping with these difficult times. Good selection of ales available given circumstances. Did not recognise the staff behind their masks but they were excellent and made sure that glasses were quickly replenished in our short stay!
By the way, did not have food but the OpenTable site assumes you did and I could not see how you move to the comments section without giving a rating.

First time in since lockdown eased. Everything is very well organised to maintain social distancing with a clearly marked one way system. There was a good choice of bar snacks as the kitchen was not working. The staff were friendly and efficient plus they looked after the cleaning after each table turned around.

In these Covid times, everything was very well organised and we felt 'safe'. All seating is outside under cover in a large horseshoe arrangement, very well spaced. Service is from your seat and is very prompt. The pub has done very well and deserves our support.

Not really a dining comment, more an appreciation of excellent service. needed to make a last minute booking for an important group meeting and Cheryl worked over and above what should be expected to make it happen for us, outstanding!

The rest of the team worked really hard all night to keep the customers happy in difficult circumstances, and what with great ales, this pub deserves all of the support it can get to get to get through this challenging period. Well done all!

Didn’t try food. Only drank. Lovely staff and I love what they’ve done to help people socially distance. Whether they want to or not. Their prices have gone up though. Not London prices yet, but it’s getting close.
