Old one bar town pub with a slight nautical feel, which seemed well used by locals. A fairly plain wooden interior with conventional tables. Draught beers on offer were Bass, Tribute, Porthleven and Proper Job and no complaints on condition.

The Prince of Wales is in a prime position,close to shops and the piers where the ferrys go from.
Once inside there is a single square shaped room with the bar on the rear right side,the floor is bare boarded,there is comfy bench seating and chairs to the front and rear and normal tables and chairs in the middle of the room.
On our first visit there was a covered pool table to the rear left.
There were three real ales on the bar,we had a drink of St Austell Proper Job,which went down very well,there was also St Austell Lemon Drop and St Austell Tribute on the bar.
We revisited this pub twice more through the week and enjoyed it here more each time we came in.

This is a simple, single room free house on Falmouth High Street, situated opposite the path down to the Prince of Wales Pier. You enter into a rectangular room with light wood floorboards and a compact servery in the rear right corner. The room has been fitted out with plenty of banquette seating, especially under the front windows, upholstered with some truly unattractive material. Standard tables and chairs fill out the rest of the room and there is a pool table in the rear left corner. The room has a reasonably traditional feel to it, thanks in part to the dark beams that run across the ceiling, although these were partially obscured by various flags, with Cornish flag bunting also strung around parts of the room. The bar is quite a straightforward affair, with an angular counter and a nice bar back with a pleasant design. A TV to the rear was switched off throughout my stay in favour of some surprisingly loud music which seemed a bit unnecessary given the dearth of customers on our early evening visit. The pub’s overall look, like so many others at this time of the year, was somewhat diminished by the countless novelty Halloween themed items that had been dotted around. This didn’t strike me as a particularly child-friendly pub (although I may well be wrong), so I have to wonder why anyone bothers will all this faux-spooky nonsense.
Back to more appropriate matters, the pub tends to have four ales on, with St Austell Tribute and Proper Job and Draught Bass acting as the house beers, usually supplemented by another Cornish brew, which on this instance was Skinners Lushingtons. I opted for the latter, having seen it in pretty much every pub I visited in Falmouth, and thought it was a pretty good pint, certainly served up in good condition. The barmaid was friendly enough and seemed to have a good rapport with the small band of locals congregated at the bar.
In many ways this is a fairly run-of-the-mill pub, with a bit of character balanced out by the tired décor and annoying seasonal affectations. There are pubs in town with comfier settings, better beer ranges and livelier atmospheres, but that is not to say that there is anything inherently wrong with this place – it just doesn’t particularly stand out from the crowd.
