Be warned. This pub doesn't seem to give ANY drinking up time whatsoever. I popped in a few weeks ago at 10:50, and we noticed that all of the chairs were stacked on the unoccupied tables already, (with the feet on the table surfaces, how hygenic,) and so I asked how long the place was open for. The bar lady told us that they were only serving for ten more minutes and we would have to leave at 11 pm exactly. We turned around and went to the Cat and Wheel instead.

Decent pub with nice selection of Bath Ales brews. Shame all the bar staff are knuckle dragging bronx homeboy wanna bees with jeans round their arses and baseball caps at jaunty angles. You'll be lucky to get more than a grunt out of them and don't expect to be served in turn.

This pub can be awesome. The beer is well kept. Bar staff, however have a screen saver on their shiny new tills. Says "If you smile, gypsies will steal your teeth". But overall, good social pub. Utilise when starting off on a big night. Quiet pints have to be tactically executed.

Be warned - the other night I witnessed a customer getting a lecture from one of the bar staff for holding up a 10 note, being told staff there didn't like that sort of thing and if he did it he would be served last! As far as I could see he was just waiting quietly to be served. I understand that as he was on his way out the manager confirmed this bizarre rule to him! Intrigued I looked up a couple of sites on pub etiquette and they all recommended holding money up to signal you are waiting to be served - I would have thought good idea in the Prince of Wales as the service can be pretty erratic.

Wanted to post as I found the whole thing pretty shabby - if they are so offended by the sight of a 10 note then I'll be taking mine elsewhere. No punter should be treated like that. Incidentally, I noticed in the gents toilet there was some graffiti, including some very industrial language, much of which didn't look new and I couldn't see any attempt to remove it. Maybe this is less offensive than holding money up in the pub.
