|Went to The Prince's Head two days ago on the recommendation of this site. It was lunchtime and there was group standing at the bar making the rafters ring with their very loud talk. Unlike the terrible old plonkers of the Angel and Crown, they were nevertheless an annoyance to others in the bar. It wasn't until they left that I heard the usual pop noise coming from a speaker just inside one of the entrances. It wasn't loud but totally unnecessary as nobody was listening to it.|
The same might be said for the TV screen that nobody was watching.
The interior of the pub is very nice with a proper pub feel to it and the ESB I had was excellent. Take away the utterly pointless and irritating speaker and I might go there again.

|A mercifully sympathetic refurbishment has done only a little to dampen this pub’s charm. We could have done without the raised tables to the left as you walk in, and there’s too much emphasis on the ‘gastro’ side of things for my liking. Still, this is very much a drinker’s haunt; it’s the dark wood, low ceilings, real fires and the sense of it being a REAL pub that does it. If they could just sort out their music policy... |

|Visited here on a warm April Friday lunchtime after walking from Putney. |
Pub looks out over Richmond Green, although when you're inside it could be anywhere. The Prince's Head ( no apostrophe on the name outside the pub !) has remained a typical London pub and has not been subjected to "modernisation", so all power to its elbow. It's a bit dingy inside but hey. isn't that what London pubs are supposed to be.
Beer was Fullers so we had ESB, London Pride, and Chiswick on offer, plus some vile golden summer ale from some other brewery whose name I did not catch. I stuck with the ESB which was very good. No doubt the summer ale tasted of Lockets like they always do.
Food was fine - I had Southern Fried Chicken burger - although the french fries ( not chips) came in one of those little pretend deep fat fryer baskets with a metal handle. Why they couldn't tip them out I do not know, but that's modern dining for you.
All in all the Prince's Head was a good pub and I'd have no hesitation in visiting it again.

|Nice little pub in a good location at the corner of the Green. Inside, there are number of little corners and there is more seating than there initially appears on entering. Being a Fullers pub, the beer range is a little limited. 4 ales were on - ESB, Pride, Black Cab & Chiswick. The Black Cab wasn't quite as good as I remembered it when I last tried it 2 years ago. But it was good enough for a few pints. As part of a group, we ate here as well. The menu is limited and the food is nothing special. I think this pub has more potential. But it doesn't need to try any harder, as its location will always help it to draw a large enough crowd.|

|Lovely pub. Popped in here again the other sunny afternoon. This pub is always busy - the sign of a good inn! If you are partial to the odd glass of white wine in these summer months, may I recommend their 'wonderful white'...|
"Riebeek Cellars" chenin blanc, from South Africa. (£5 for a large glass....but it IS worth it.) DO try it, it is extraordinarily good. Well done landlord choosing "Riebeek Cellars", top notch. :o) TJ
