The Prince of Wales comes up smelling of fresh roses
Aside from the collectables there’s a lovely pub to be enjoyed. Your classic bar stools are squashed together, a varied selection of drinkers inhabits the place and the staff are friendly enough to engage you in more than the obligatory, hello. There’s nothing out of the ordinary on the taps, a pretty pedestrian selection of lager and a couple of ales and the same goes for the wine. They don’t serve food either but it sums up the pubs rather rag tag appeal in that you’re welcome to order takeaway to your table from the local pizza delivery.
The music is a rough and ready selection of indie, grunge and rock n roll on this occasion and we’re told that the weekly quiz is always popular. I wouldn’t be surprised if it was in a place as interesting as this. Judged against the rest of Clapham’s pubs, the Prince of Wales comes up smelling of fresh roses, and that’s opposed to the fake, plastic bouquets of many of the others, which distinctly whiff.

We have now come to know the pub as a bit more of a regular venue and have experienced not only their bloody mary's, but also their good selection of wine and real ales. We have even partaken in the Thursday night pub quiz, which makes for quite a competitive event (get there early to get good seats). The landlord does the MC-ing and is quite the show man. Note, don't make sarcastic comments when you are up at the bar, the mic really does magnify all comments.
Have I mentioned the decor? It is eccentric, quirky and cool. It really adds to the atmosphere. I have read rumours that the pub is owned by Vivienne Westwood, but I can assure your that although she sometimes drinks there, she definitely is not the owner.
If you get hungry, they offer pizza via a delivery service from a local restaurant. We've had it a few times and it is consistently good and is a good investment when you are there for the quiz in order to limit your hangover the following day.
This pub is definitely worth a visit especially if you fancy a local pub with a quirky atmosphere and a good selection of drinks, people and music!
