user reviews of the Prince of Wales, Shrivenham

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

The POW has changed hands twice recently and is lacking in atmosphere at the moment but hopefully will improve as the new landlords settle in. This is a good old fashioned village pub with real ale, fire, garden, etc & I hope it isn't 'improved' by Sky TV, crap piped music & other modern horrors!

By far the best pub in the immediate area, the Prince of Wales is a lively, thriving business which caters for locals and (mature) students from the nearby Defence Academy. The bar single is large, but due to its construction (appears to be two houses knocked together) it seems to ramble and is difficult to negotiate at busy times. No electronic distractions, good food, real ale and a popular Tuesday pub quiz (which has been going on for at least 15 years), run by enthusiastic and pleasant staff, this is a pub worth going out of your way to find. There were 6 ales on this week, all Wadworths. I had a pint of George and Dragon, well-kept and highly enjoyable. Could be included in a motorised crawl, taking in the local villages, and I would be happy to spend an evening here anytime

Visited on a Saturday lunchtime. The food was excellent and there was a good range of real ales. I don't remember there being any canned music, hooray!
No TVs either, as far as I know. Why can't all pubs be as good as this?

A charming old pub with a good atmosphere, ever-changing range of real ales, beer garden and cheery landlord. However, they have the monopoly in the village at the moment and it shows too much on the menu, pricey drinks and weekend nights frequently without the landlord or landlady. They make a good effort with year round events such as live music, BBQs and parties but many think they could do with concentrating their efforts on reviewing their menu and giving better value to their customers.

Great atmosphere, real ale, good food, friendly bar staff and fun-loving landlords make this old village pub a must.
