David Walton left this review about Prince of Wales

Feel like I am missing something here as this is a very traditional pub but I can’t find as an open or even closed venue that has recently reopened on the site.

The PoW Forest Hill is a small venue with seating doted around an island bar. A small but unappealing terrace on one side of the pub. Here at 8pm and as full as it is likely to be with a quiz promised. Large screen in the corner that was showing the Champions League action until it was killed presumably anticipating the quiz.

Literally at 57 years of age I was the youngest here. Thank god there was no if you are lucky enough to be under 60 please be prepared to show evidence to verify age etc.

Quaffs wise, totally unexciting. Proliferation of lagers in the Fosters, Heineken, Moretti, Amstel space. Yet another pint of Guinness for me rather than Neck Oil or Inchs cider. There were some bottled quaffs such as Newcastle Brown Ale and Bishop’s Finger. Most here would fail the age limitation of being too old to be a bishop I would hazard a guess.

There must be something I am missing here. This must be on the site already unless it is listed as a care home, something I am very sadly from a personal circumstance familiar with at this juncture. Will add a piccy on the way out to evidence this place as real rather than being in my imagination.
