“ Lovely country pub with some of the best views.. Ever!” 5/5 stars. Reviewed 16 January 2015. ''Sitting perched on top of a wind swept, historic and atmospheric Ham Hill, The Prince Of Wales is a welcoming, homely pub, with flagstones and roaring open fire and has an air of times gone by..We opted for a delicious beef, bacon and mushroom stew served with truly fresh bread which was perfect after a winter ramble across the hill. Popular with dog walkers and ramblers, Well worth a visit for good, hearty food. Take a minute to peak into the tiny, romantic miners chapel that is attached to the pub. ”Debbie H, Chard
“ Always great!  5 out of 5 stars.  From Chrissy. September 2014.   Some family members and I popped into the PoW for an impromptu drink and snack after a day out and had a thoroughly excellent evening. We ordered a few drinks, some bowls of really delicious chips and my dad had sausage and mash, which he was very impressed with. We sat in the bar area for a good two or three hours playing scrabble, draughts and dominos (provided by the pub) and having a chat with the very friendly landlord. We had a super evening and my Dad (who was visiting from Berkshire) was so impressed he's decided he wants to go back there every time he comes to stay! We always enjoy the food and the really relaxed and friendly atmosphere of the PoW and will definitely go back- with or without Dad! ”Chrissy, 16 September 2014
“ “Excellent venue” Reviewed 26 February 2013 We had a family gathering here, (age range 1 to 90!) and everyone enjoyed the visit and their meal. We received excellent service from very friendly, helpful staff. The food is lovely and there is an excellent selection on the menu. Set on Ham Hill this a really good venue for a walk before or after your meal. The atmosphere and views are wonderful. Highly recommendable all round. ”Jennifer494963, Croyde
“ Walked my dogs around the monument on the hill this morning and then into pub for a mug of coffee and full english, the sausage was the best. Pub had plenty of people in at the time from local and regular dog walkers and their dogs which all were getting on. A group of cyclists and joggers. the service was excellent. ”Paul Cox, 9 months ago
“ Great place for a drink mid walk, or even to end one. ”Gary Lonsdale,

About our landlords:

Mike and Nicki have been the landlords at The Prince of Wales Ham Hill since October 2006 although Mike has been in the pub trade for more than 30 years.

Nicki says:

''It took us a long time to find this pub but we knew it could fulfil Mike's dream of owning and running a pub as he envisaged it, and that was without a lot of tick boxing and managing it from behind a computer.

"The open spaces were ideal as we have a young daughter and we knew we would end up with dogs, we have two. Bono is a chocolate lab who knows exactly who buys him biscuits and even recognises their cars so he can go and welcome them with his puppy dog eyes. Max is a sprocker who is as mad as a box of frogs. you will hear us on our walks as he barks his way around, hence he carries a ball to muffle the sound!!

"You never tire of the views and we are settled here with Amy in a local school. Mike has his golf, and I have an allotment.

"Dogs are very welcome in the bar. We also provide water troughs and hose outside for dogs and wellies. There are metal rings for dog leads on tables outside and even dog biscuits available at the bar."
