The best pub in Kennington
”It’s not ours but enjoy the beautiful Cleaver Square on our doorstep”


The Prince of Wales is a traditional independent pub set on leafy Cleaver Square, Kennington and offers that rare chance to enjoy open space in the city. Take your drinks and takeaway food with you and soak up the atmosphere. However we do ask you to respect our neighbours and that you behave in an orderly manor.

The venue has a beautiful interior with some wonderful eclectic artwork. Food is served Wednesday to Sunday including a superb Sunday Roast making this one of the best pubs in Kennington for a bite to eat.

There is a small seating area outside at the front, but the large Georgian square opposite can be enjoyed by all. Take your drinks and takeaway food with you and soak up the atmosphere. You can also watch petanque matches unfold and even have a go yourself by hiring equipment from the bar.

Of course, you might just prefer to curl up in the pub’s cosy, comfortable interior, where fabulous food and drink will gladly keep you company.

When the cricket is being played just around the corner at the Oval then the Prince of Wales is one of the best places to start your pre-match day. Chat and mingle with fellow cricket heads before a short walk to the ground.

The Prince of Wales is a convenient place to come together with friends from all over the city. And while this was once a favoured watering hole of the Richardson gang, arch rivals to the Krays, the clientele these days are somewhat friendlier - you can rest assured a warm welcome awaits.

Quaint, tiny local pub, on the corner of a lovely, quiet square. Feels like a country pub & has that atmosphere. Friendly staff.

Wow, such an amazing pub! We visited The Prince of Wales last night after hearing that it has new owners. We were very pleasantly surprised. It’s kept it’s charm but the interiors have been cleverly and stylishly updated and the artwork has been curated by someone with a great eye. We were so glad to see a delicious new menu. I had cornfed chicken, my partner lamb shank , both were mouth watering, finished off with one of the best sticky toffee puds I’ve ever tasted. Can’t wait to return!
