|Popped in here with my sister as we were heading to the Royal Albert Hall for a concert.......wished we hadn't.|
I had the misfortune to be served by the very rude ETHAN. Asked for 2 large glasses of wine with ice, he put ice in first then poured the wine to the line before adding more ice. When I remarked that that was a bit naughty his reply was " thank you for telling me off I feel so much better now" never have I been spoken to like that as a customer!!!!!! How down right rude!!!!!! He sarcastically put an extra drop in before muttering something under his breath. At the end of the day if I am paying for a 250ml glass then that is what I expect to get.....
If that is how they treat their customers then it is no surprise they were fairly quiet at 7pm.
Needless to say I will not be going back there again.

|On my way back to Ken High Street from the Churchill up the road I popped in here. You could describe this as a mistake. Two of the real ales were off, including the ubiquitous Black Sheep. 'But we do have another excellent Yorkshire beer, Tim Taylor's Landlord'. OK, I'll have one of them.|
£4.25. Yes that's right, £4.25. Read that and weep............
It's a disgrace that is. Sorry, but it is.
The pub doesn't really have much to recommend it despite the promise of a rather charming exterior. In particular the front bit is about the most ridiculously furnished section you could come across in a pub. It's just a load of tables and chairs, of varying heights, jammed in there. As other have noted, likely a transient place. Certainly was for me; I'll not be back to be fleeced of the best part of a fiver for a pretty average pint of Landlord

|Popped in for a bite to eat at 4pm on a Friday, leured by the sign outside advertising fish & chips.|
Nice little pub, reasonable selection of Fullers and Youngs and a fine portion of food, served quickly by very nice staff.
I'm working in London for a few weeks and staying in the Copthorn Tara and I can see this becoming my temporary local till I find somthing better.

|I read the reviews before visiting this pub after a shopping trip into the high street. I was shocked to see how different everything was, they have had a refurbishment and a new menu. |
The outside looks nice however is quite hard to notice from the high street, lucky my wife was shopping everywhere.
The staff were really nice and spoke to us for a while even thou the pub was quite busy, our food was really good. I am use to paying and getting acceptable food but this was really good. I had a few pints, the beer choice is simple but its a small pub, what do you expect. It seems the lines are cleaned often, I had a really good pint of STAR.
I shall visit again when I return to london, overall deff a 9!

|The Prince of Wales is a very narrow fronted pub on Kensington Church St a few yards off the High St itself. Although the frontage is tiny the interior is wedge shaped - widening gradually as you go past the bar into a more spacious rear area.|
The interior is ok but a little run down and rather like the Bunch of Grapes in Knightsbridge it seems mainly to be used as a refuge from the retail horrors of the High St. There were 5 ales on pump - Youngs Ordinary and London Gold, Spitfire, Pride and Bombardier.
The pub has a bit of a transient feel to it and whilst perfectly acceptable for a quick Saturday afternoon pint I couldn't recommend it as somewhere for a long session.
