The Prince of Wales  

This was once a good real ale pub serving up to 8 real ales, but has now reduced to serving three of the major ones Greene King Abbott, Charles Wells Bombardier, and Theakstons. They also serve lots of wine, at least 8 different choices.

The decor is all wood and the bar area is not very large - it can fill up most early evenings before the theatre kicks off. A mixed clientele of theatre goers and office workers and of course real ale pub searchers. There is a little music in the background but its not intrusive.

Food is available, though it wasn't tested on this occasion - but China town is round the corner and you can get all you want from there should you need to. Chalk boards tell you all you need to know about the beers and wines, etc.

Getting a seat was hard and many were standing, but this is London pre-theatre call.

The toilets were clean and staff were friendly, but looked rushed off their feet. If you are near the theatre, its worth a look in. Closer to Covent garden tube stop.

No accommodation here.
