The Prince of Wales is a small single room Shepherd Neame pub that is handily placed for a sneaky pint whilst the misses does the shopping. The bar is on the back wall and the usual SN draught of Oranjeboom etc are all available alongside three hand pumps that were drawing Bishop’s Finger, Master Brew and Spitfire during my visit late on Tuesday evening last week. There is a plasma screen that was showing a football match courtesy of Nova Sports and a monitor behind the bar was displaying live bus departure times from Churchill Square. There was some decent background music playing at a sensible volume and there are regular music events throughout the week. These includes open mic on Wednesdays, live music on Thursdays, Karaoke on Fridays and a DJ on Saturdays. The toilets are located downstairs next to the advertised games room which is in fact a dartboard with minimal seating.

The governor was a very friendly chap and I’d have no problem returning for another beer.

This is a very small, cosy and welcoming pub sandwiched between the imposing Churchill Square shopping centre and a busy Brighton High Street more suited to the Weatherspoons and Yates's of this world.
The interior comprises of one small room with a bar at the rear and about six or seven tables in the seating area in front. There are also a few tables outside for those hoping for a pint in the sun.
It's a Shepherd Neame pub and there were three beers on offer when I went (Spitfire, Kent's Best and Master Brew). I tried the Spitfire and found it to be in excellent condition. In fact, I'd go so far as to say that it was probably the best tasting pint of any SN beer I'd ever had, so kudos to the staff for that.
I can imagine the place gets uncomfortably busy in the summer, but my mid March, early afternoon visit was very enjoyable and I'll make sure I give this place another try when I'm next in town.
