I recently revisited this pub when back in the area visiting family and was pleasantly surprised to see the Prince Alfred was under new management. The pub was much more welcoming and had a much cleaner décor with great comfortable sofas. It was great to see the second bar was now in use as well as real ale on the menu. The homemade pickled eggs were a particular favourite of my husbands - he even had the chilli pickled eggs. All in all a great traditional pub. AR

A handler's lair.

I am fed up with people bad mouthing this pub. The establishment fully embraces the ethos of real ale, as its vast offering of cask ales from Microbreweries demonstrates. It is not unusual to hear the regulars proffer their views on the evils of pasteurisation and filtration, as used in the production of keg beers. Add to this the ever popular wine club, where one can hear the local lumeries explain how a good pinot noir stays long on the palate, as opposed to a pungent tart Semillon and you have a bon viveurs dream.
The chateaubriand is second to none and the French chef occasionally obtains the much sought after Black Perigord truffle!
Finally the landlord has had the wit and foresight to leave the interior as a homage to Look Back in Anger, although some say he sees it as a metaphor for the working class struggle against an oppressive regime - who knows? but full of character.
