Food for our group of ten was varied and enjoyable. There appeared to be only two servers for the whole, quite busy pub and they were always working, but service suffered. I would not mark this as poor, but it was overall below average.

The night that I went a new manager had just taken over and had not got to grips with the problems they had. I had the Seafood Medley which was very goog/ I have been to many " Levy & Franks" pubs and always found a variety of dishes and good value for money

Booked for lunch today at 1.45. Not really busy but took 20 mins for drinks and 35 mins before starters arrived. 2 out of 3 starters sent back as they were only lukewarm.... hollandaise sauce with a skin on it when served was a clue! When I asked the waitress to return the starter she responded " just a minute... More

Booking system unreliable- food can be really yum or average. Also the serving staff can be welcoming or not bothered a real lack of consistency- shame

We pre-booked our table and choices,however they did not receive the choices which actually was no problem as we could choose again! The staff and manager were both attentive and efficient. Food was absolutely unsurpassably good - served on hot plates.In all,it was a joy to returned to the Prince of Wales!

The Prince of Wales is always good for food and it never disappoints but ... there's always something which means you can never trust it enough to book there for a special occasion. Long waits for food, long waits for the bill and then thinking it perfectly ok to have workmen drilling loudly during a festive lunch service! The waitress... More
