We’re the community pub
Tucked away down the back streets of Belle Vue you’ll find The Prince of Wales, commonly referred to as Shrewsbury’s “Hidden Gem” and the local community pub. We’re a no nonsense traditional pub focused on great beer and quality service.
The pub is at the centre of a community in Belle Vue and is only a short walk from the town centre. We’re family and dog friendly; everyone is welcome and you’ll feel as if you’d have been coming here for years.
Our main focus at The Prince of Wales is quality beer, especially real ale.
Since taking over in 2003 we’ve built a strong reputation among pub in Shrewsbury for our real ale; winning CAMRA Shrewsbury & West Shropshire’s Pub of the Year in 2006 & 2015, (plus runners up in 2005, 2007, 2008, silver award in 2009 and third in 2011 & 2012). Also in 2014 recieved a Tribute Masters Award from St Austells brewery and were finalists in Shropshire Star's Spotlight Award for best pub in the county.
So why not come down The Prince of Wales next time you’re in Shrewsbury and try our award-winning real ale, it would be rude not to!
Although we’re tucked away down the back streets of Shrewsbury we surprisingly have a lot to offer. The pub has two main rooms; the lounge is a comfortable spacious room with plenty of tables and chairs for groups small or large, whereas the bar offers darts, dominoes and plenty of room sitting or standing, it’s your choice.
Outside we have a large decked area perfectly situated in a ‘sun trap’; perfect for an afternoon or evening with your choice of real ale at hand. Over looking the decking is our bowling green, with league matches played most summer nights, and Prospect House; a stunning red brick building, coincidentally a former maltings.
Keeping it local
At The Prince of Wales we believe in keeping it close to home and supporting local businesses. We source most of our regular and guest real ale from local breweries; representing the best of Shrewsbury and Shropshire through the real ale we serve at our pub.
Our main supplier is the local award-winning Tanners Wines of Shrewsbury (it's only a short walk from The Prince of Wales and worth a visit). An of course our wines come from Tanners too and have been carefully selected with Tanners Wines.
Our food is also locally sourced as well supporting other Shrewsbury businesses; with G.O. Elson Family Butchers, Coleham providing our meat from just down the road and using other local food producers wherever possible.
We’re a community pub that believes in supporting local businesses.
