Small one room pub with bar to the left. Four hand pumps including a cider @ 7% ABV. Some outside seating. Various items on the walls and ceilings, including two sets of traffic lights. One of the stop lights wasn't working.

As Steve mentions below a very quirky and quite atmospheric pub,all manor of things adourn the walls and hang from the ceiling,from stuffed animal heads and various puppets to all sorts of impliments and ceramics. In comparisson the three beers on were a little ordinary, Harveys Bitter,Woodefords Wherry and Sambrooks Pumphouse Pale, the latter was perfectly good though. Another good pub in this area.

After visiting other pubs in the area that have undergone gastro makeovers or are aimed a twenty-something crowd I was taken aback as I entered the Prince of Wales. My surprise was due to the plethora of curios that hangs from every square inch of the ceiling and walls in this dimly lit pub. Surprisingly there is also space for a television which was off, which I imagine is its normal state. The background music was very depressing and nearly had me reaching for some black nail varnish.
The single room interior is laid out with some tables under the front windows and along the right hand wall. The bar on the left hand wall supports a premium keg selection and I counted four hand pumps. These were drawing Harveys’ Best, Truman’s Swift, Sambrook’s Pumphouse Pale Ale and Millwights’ Cider. There was also a large selection of bottled beers from around the world. Food is not available and I doubt that children are welcome. There is a quiz on Thursdays from 20:00 and it should be noted that this pub does not open until 16:00 in the week and 13:00 at the weekend. The late opening is accompanied by late closing which happens at midnight Monday to Thursday and 01:00 on Fridays and Saturdays.
This is a very quirky pub that is certainly worth a look, but I found that a pint was enough before I had to escape.
