Vicki's Secret Fundraiser

It started as a conversation between two people and ended up as one of the best days The Prince of Wales will ever see…

Most people in the area know The Prince of Wales, and if you know the pub you know the landlady. Vicki has been running the pub for over 10 years turning it around from a struggling backstreet boozer to a real ale heaven. During this time Vicki has battled a serious illness which has taken a bad turn in recent years, but this hasn’t stopped her doing more than her bit for the local community... read more

Shove it, chuck it, toss it:
The Prince of Wales, Shrewsbury

How best to describe the Prince of Wales. The pubs own website suggests 'Hidden Gem', which seems entirely legitimate to me. It might even be described as Shrewsburys best kept pub secret, certainly it's a little off the beaten track, though we found it easily enough. Indeed the landlady of the B&B we were staying in seemed reticent recommending the Prince of Wales to us, something to do with it being her local!

It can be like that with a well-loved locals more
