The Prince of Wales Farnborough

Award Winning Real Ale Pub in Farnborough, Hampshire.



Under the current government instructions, we are now closed until further notice. During the current lockdown period, we will currently not be offering a takeaway service.

Please keep an eye here or on our social media pages for information on when we will be reopening, when the booking system will be up and running again and for all the latest updates.

We want to thank you all for your continued support during these times and we look forward to seeing you all again when we are able to open! Stay safe


Following the government announcement on Saturday 31st October, sadly we will be required to close our doors at 10pm on Wednesday 4th November 2020 until December.

We have therefore decided to open on the following days and times before close down:-

  • Monday 2nd November 5pm-10pm
  • Tuesday 3rd November 5pm-10pm
  • Wednesday 4th November 2pm-10pm

We are already looking very busy so do recommend that you make a reservation for a two hour slot via the booking system at the top of this page. Please select ‘standard’ as your seating option if you would like an indoor table (already fully booked on Wednesday evening) or ‘outdoor’ to be sat in the beer garden.

The rule of 6 currently still applies therefore we can not take parties larger than this size or combine tables next to each other to take larger parties sadly.

We will do our best to accommodate walk-ins however strongly advise making a booking due to our limited capacity. To enable as many customers to have a chance to enjoy a pub before close down we will be operating the two hour time limits on tables and we do ask you to kindly help us out by only booking a table that will accommodate your party size, for example if you will be a table of 2 please don’t book a larger size so we can welcome and say a short farewell to as many of you as possible.

We will be required to comply with curfew and be closed by 10pm each day, we predict a busy few days all round and therefore would recommend pre-booking taxis as local companies are likely to be very busy and unfortunately we can not keep customers onsite past 10pm.

We would like to thank you all for your continued support and we will stay in touch via our social media pages and website once plans for reopening in December are confirmed.

The table booking system will close after Wednesday and any bookings made for the shutdown period automatically cancelled.

Stay safe and see you all soon!
