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

Since the smoking ban, this small Nicholson's pub is much more pleasant inside than it used to be since the majority of customers usually seem to be standing outside in the semi-pedestrianised Villiers Street rather than being crammed into the rather dark interior. There is also the Rudyard Kipling dining room upstairs (never visited). On this visit, I found NPA plus five decent beers in a variety of styles including Florida Dark wild oat stout from Black Wolf (£4.45). Also now has Meantime's London Lager and Pale Ale on tap. Overall, nothing special, but not bad for a quick one if waiting for a train from the adjacent Charing Cross station. NB - Polycarbonate 'glasses' now in use from 20:00 due to licencing restrictions.

A reasonable Nicholson’s with the usual trimmings and facilities. The staff were not the most helpful, the clientele mainly the after-work crowd delaying their arrival home. The TV was showing Sky News, the WiFi worked and the beer was good – 6 ales on draft, the pint of Revd James I had was quite decent, although it was possibly nearing the end of is shelf-life. I'd include in a crawl and would be happy to pop in most times for food and drink.

2 floor Nicholson's pub(didn't visit upstairs). 6 real ale taps 5 on during my visit. Quite a plain interior by Nicholson's standards.
