I visited the Prince of Wales today. The pub itself was great although extremely hot. I asked to move tables away from the radiator. The staff could not have been more helpful and accomodating, I ordered cod and chips and was extremely disappointed. Fish warm and hard inside should be light and flaky although batter nice inside was tasteless and... More

I have visited The Prince several times over the years and although not my favourite pub it has always been a convenient option being as central as it is. However last week after meeting friends I decided to eat there and can't believe how bad the quality of the food was. After waiting a short while for the macaroni cheese... More

This pub is probably my last option in Wimbledon, the staff in there are normally rude and don't care to help there was a few months ago one South African gentleman who was amazing but I'm guessing he left as the manager is so rude. The food is ok but I'm guessing majority of it is microwaved and for the... More

Hi there Cjude, We are very sorry for our stock issue that day, unfortunately some food items are in high demand so we can run out from time to time. I am glad you received the correct service and looked after when we discovered your food wasn't correct. It would be a pleasure to have you visit again. Thank you... More

Taylor Walker run pub in the heart of Wimbledon. Nice traditional decor. Sports on big screens so not the quietest if there's a match on, especially if it's Chelsea. Nice big reasonably priced tasty pub grub portions but surprisingly expensive coffee (?). Worth a visit.

Staff did not keep up with customers waiting including me, beers were short when poured, the customer service has to improve

Place was still quiet so it must be too early. Beer was standard but pub food was good. We enjoyed it very much

Was in area one Saturday morning and decided to pop into the Prince of Wales for a pint. Nice, Large and relaxed old style bar with good selection of beers (usual brands, but a lot of cask and guest ales) and other drinks. Good looking food menu also. If I find myself in the area again in future I will... More

Description
Prince Of Wales is a traditional British pub in Wimbledon serving great cask ales and freshly cooked traditional pub food The Prince of Wales was formerly a 17th century coaching inn, frequently visited by Dick Turpin during his highway man years. The old cellar in the pub, now known as Bertie's Bar, Kitchen and Courtyard was previously built to shelter travellers' horses. . Opening Berties in 1971 involved demolishing much of the original stonework and now only the cobbles beneath the flagstones remain as a reminder of the past. Built in 1870, the house only became known as the Prince of Wales after 1891 when 20,000 British soldiers were paraded before the Kaiser on Wimbledon Common
