The Prince of Wales is a traditional pub with a friendly and lively atmosphere. Being a ‘Freehouse’ we offer exceptional choice and value for money. We are located in York Avenue, East Cowes directly opposite the entrance to Osborne House, Queen Victoria’s favourite home. With a large car park, on the main road from East Cowes to Ryde/Newport we are approximately a half mile from Red Funnel Car Ferry terminal. We are on the main bus route to and from East Cowes and there is a bus stop right outside.
The present owner, Wight Leisure Ltd has embarked on a programme of improvement, sympathetic renovation and restoration. Wight Leisure Ltd is a group of local people committed to maintaining a traditional pub with fair prices. In addition there will be provision of newly refurbished, quality en suite letting rooms. Pub games such as darts, pool and petanque are played while there is screening of Sky Sports and ESPN. Free Wi-Fi is available. There are regular music, karaoke and quiz nights.
