I haven't been in the Prince for a while but today I made the effort. It was well worth while.

The pub is a little out of town and off of the 'beaten track' and suffers as a result. However, the beer is excellent and the staff friendly and efficient. The pub is quite light and airy though there may be 2 or 3 too many bar stools; nonetheless, it's a hostelry that any beer drinker, indeed anyone else too, would do well to visit at least once. It's close to a pretty good restaurant, 'Rossini', and makes an ideal starting or ending point to any visit there.

The 'Prince of Wales', now run by the 'Animal Brewery' and serving their most interesting and flavoursome range of beers, is a good 25 minute walk for me as I live on the opposite side of town; it will, nonetheless, be a frequent haunt from now on.
