Al Bundy left this review about Prince of Wales

A 2 roomed pub down a back street of the town centre. As noted it has a plain looking exterior and inside is fairly traditional. One of the rooms houses a pool table. The servery is split into two with a handpump on each side. Doom Bore was on one pump and Pedigree on the other.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Prince of Wales

Traditional two-bar pub, with a dark wood-panelled lounge at the front and a larger but lighter public bar and pool room further back. Just one handpump, on the rear counter, dispensing Pedigree (£3.10).

The Prince of Wales is a typical town centre local's pub, located in the Rugby's retail district. The pub has a two room layout, with a reasonably smart, if somewhat dated, front room, which is carpeted and has long banquettes and a lot of standard and low stool seating. A TV screen was showing horse racing, which seemed to be appreciated by a fair few punters, whilst the walls were decorated with all sorts of photo montages and a few bits of boxing memorabilia, although I couldn't figure out what link the pub might have to the sport. The servery is located on the rear wall, but there was no ale on, so we made our way into the rear room where a second bar, replete with a single hand pump, could be found. The room has a partly carpeted floor, with linoleum around the pool table which dominates the centre of the room. Standard and low stool seating flanks the pool table down both sides and there was a large TV screen above the rear door leading out to a decent looking walled garden. There was a dartboard and second TV screen over on the right hand wall, with a good collection of trophies nearby suggesting the presence of various pub teams. A juke box rounded out the entertainment options.
The solitary hand pump was dispensing Marstons Pedigree - a fairly uninspired choice but I have to say it was in very good shape and I enjoyed my swift half. There were quite a few locals in during our visit and they seemed like a reasonably friendly bunch.
I liked the two bar layout in this place and thought it had a bit more character than your average town centre local's pub. The beer range may not be inspiring but credit is due for having at least one ale on and for keeping it in good nick.
