A very large corner pub tastefuly modernised inside, I quite liked the layout described in Quinnos update below.I thought six handpumps was quite impressive for a two pub village unfortunately every clip was reversed amongst those turned were a couple of Greene King usuals , St Austell Tribute and Theakstones Old Peculiar .Before I could enquire the girl behind the bar apollogised explaining a cellar issue had arisen on the day and no draft beer was available at all ,cask or keg, luckily there was a decent range of bottles so I chose a Brewdog Dead Pony Club from the Craft Fridge and very nice it was.Cellar problems not withstanding I quite liked the pub and would call in again in the unlikely event of me passing through this way again.

Quinno _ left this review about The Prince

So there’s been a through refurb so a revisit had to be done (plus it’s now a Greene King pub). Still smells new inside. Decent refit in a style that has cropped up in a couple of other bars lately, black and silver wallpaper, grey and mushroom walls, metro tile bar back with elevated built-in fridge etc. The pool table looks to have gone. There was the promise of more ale and indeed there were six pumps – Wadworth 6X, a house beer ‘Sovereign’ from Ascot Ales, Hogs Back TEA (decent), Cotleigh Tawny (mediocre at best) and GK Abbot. There were a decent set of bottles in the fridge. Basic pub grub offered. Whilst it’s still not exactly a reason to come to Crowthorne, it at least has improved. I'm also pleased to report that Muzzy's served another top-notch kebab afterwards.

Large and basic Barras pub, the interior of which has seen better days. Full of kids, we were probably the oldest customers and we’re not exactly middle-aged. General feeling of it being somewhere that youngsters congregate who don’t have the money/guile to do a Saturday night in Reading. Pool table. Three ales; Old Hooky (pretty naff) Doom Bar, Directors and Westons Twist as the cider. One bonus is that it’s the closet pub to Muzzy’s kebab van, the second-best best kebbabage in Berkshire (Kings Grill in Reading is the best, if you’re interested). Anyway this place needs a refurb and aiming at a better market. Rated 4

I had a fantastic time celebrating Burns night at The Prince. The food was outstanding, seriously tasty, all served piping hot and very reasonably priced. The atmosphere was buzzing and the staff were brilliant putting up with us drunken bums. Would most definitely recommend to everyone. I will make this a regular watering hole (if i'm allowed back after last night) A*************+

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

Interesting spectrum of customers, with a rather different feel to place depending whereabouts along the bar one is standing. Had a very pleasant lunch-time pint of Thwaites Wainwright, though.
