We had a catch-up dinner with friends. Everyone enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. The pub was crowded but we were able to go to our table early to chat. Staff were friendly and relaxed but also very efficient. A very good evening.

A friend and I regularly meet here for lunch on a Friday. We've tried others in the area and always end up back at the PoW. Friendly and unobtrusive service and always a arm welcome. Make sure you arrive hungry: portions are generous. We usually have either a burger or fish and chips. This particular Friday we opted for the latter. Tender juicy fish, light and tasty batter, very chunky chips that we can never quite finish off. Excellent wine selection and very good coffee. We'll be back!
P.S. I thought twice before writing this review, as we love the fact it is usually pretty quiet on a Friday lunchtime, but finally posted in fairness to the PoW.

Really lovely, food and great ambience. Slightly expensive, but I feel it was worth it. My friend said her meal was cold, but I had no complaints.
Service was good, but slow mainly because there weren't many people serving and there were a lot of customers.
Over all I really enjoyed it!

Enjoyed a lovely roast dinner on Sunday. The rib of beef was tender & full of flavour, the pork loin was also beautifully cooked with some crunchy crackling on the edge. Both came with a great selection of Sunday veg & potatoes. Service was very attentive & friendly. We will be back again.

The Prince of Wales is a great pub, whether you are going in for a mega of just a drink. The atmosphere is always great, the food fantastic & you will struggle to get friendlier service in a pub. Highly recommended to anyone.

We met with friends for a Friday evening dinner. We had a drink in the pub area first - always a buzzy atmosphere.
when we went for dinner we were given the table we had asked for when booking with Opentable.
As always, the service was friendly and very efficient . We were very slow to make our choice from the menu as we too busy chatting, but there was no pressure on us to order and the patient waitress just asked us to let her know when we were ready.
As always, food was good - generous helpings and cooked well.
My husband was a little disappointed that Oyster shots weren t on the starter menu this time.....but can't have it all! !
We return to The Prince of Wales on a fairly regular basis as it is a very relaxed place to eat and is consistently good - with friendly and very helpful staff.
A great local meeting and eating place.

Delicious! Two of us had the pork loin, which was very tender and tasty. The crackling was amazing! Massive yorkshire puddings and crispy roasties - yum. Someone else ordered the pheasant and his plate was scraped clean. Finished off with a gooey chocolate fondant and passion fruit posset, with a melt-in-the-mouth vanilla shortbread. We all thought the restaurant had a great atmosphere with friendly staff. Will be back again!

POW is so much more than a gastro-pub. The restaurant quality food is served by engaged, solicitous staff in an informal and welcoming atmosphere. You can tell that an eatery will be good when the fresh, home-made bread (rich in olive oil) arrives with butter sprinkled with little flecks of sea salt. Everything else was superb, including the wine from an eclectic and good value list. I feel very lucky to have the POW on my doorstep and have taken friends, my boyfriend and parents there. It's suitable for all!

Had dinner on Tuesday night and loved it! The food was delicious, the wine list extensive and well priced (try the Portuguese Chardonnay for something new and different) and the service relaxed. We felt very welcome and will definately go again!

I walk past this pub everyday but had no idea of the little gem of a restaurant was hidden in the back.
Whilst a small menu, that appears to change daily, I could have ordered every item on there and what we did order was absolutely beautiful and reasonably priced with a great wine selection. The only thing that left me feeling disapointed was my ability to finish the main course - never mind have room for desert!

This is the very rare combination of proper food being served in a proper pub! The dining room isn't big, so it's always a good idea to book, but it is TOTALLY worth it.
The menu changes daily, and it's clear from the very first mouthful that the chef REALLY cares about the food. Everything is utterly delicious, beautifully presented, and incredible value. They also didn't mind that my friend and I ordered two starters and dessert each!
This place is at the end of my road and I don't go nearly enough...
(There's also proper cider on tap, and an open fire in the bar area. A-ma-zing.)

We always have lunch at the PoW on our annual visit to watch Fulham v Sunderland. The fact that Sunderland always lose makes it really important that we have a good time before the game and the PoW always comes up trumps. This year there were 8 of us (including a 6 year old) and the staff were great as they knew we had to be away by 1.30pm. Service was prompt and really helpful, all with a smile, attentive but not invasive. Food was lovely helped by a few jars of the black stuff.
As we haven't been relegated, we will certainly be back next year for the same again.
