Having read the variable reviews on this pub, my wife and I plus two friends decided to "give it a try" for a pre-theatre meal recently (mid-February 2011). It was already pretty full when we arrived, but we found a high-stool table. We ordered meals varying from steak and ale pie, to scampi and a chicken curry. The food arrived within ten minutes - it was hot, very tasty and the portions were large. Absolutely no complaints. We only ordered one dessert (apple pie) for my wife and I to share; it arrived within two minutes, despite the pub still being very busy. Again, a good portion, enough for two, the custard, served in a jug, was hot and creamy (not like water, as in some establishments!) and it was very tasty.
We found the staff to be friendly, helpful and very efficient. The prices for both food and drinks were no more expensive than in our part of mid Kent, so we were all pleasantly surprised by the Prince of Wales and will certainly use it again.
