Princess of Wales, London

The Princess of Wales is located between Charing Cross and Embankment stations on the busy Villiers Street just south of Strand.

The Interior

Named after the ‘secret’ first wife of George IV, this small two-floored pub is owned by the Nicholson’s chain of pubs. With a traditional exterior and much more modern interior, the pub is very popular with tourists who are there to enjoy both the beers on offer and the traditional pub menu usually offered by Nicholsons. The split level ground floor features the bar on the right and plenty of seating throughout although you may struggle to get a seat down busy times. Upstairs the Alexandra dining room features table service but no bar.

The Beers

As with all Nicholson’s pubs, there is a good selection of ales available. When I visited in December 2012, 6 ales were available including one from local London brewery Ha’penny Brewing, Kelburn, Brentwood. Also available on keg were 2 beers from the Meantime Brewery based in Greenwich.
