The Prince of Wales is located at the bottom of Springfield Road. The pub originally comprised of four cottages. The Prince of Wales has been enlarged over the years.
The Stroud sub-branch of the Campaign for Real Ale visited the Prince of Wales on 10th October 2021 and submitted the following report: ‘This locals Cotswold stone pub, run by Seb and Lucy, sits on the large housing estate of Cashes Green. The family run pub benefits from a secluded garden to the south side with tables and a covered smoking shelter. The bar is traditional with a pool table and dart board and sports TV courtesy of BT. The lounge is quiet, comfortable with a log burner and doubles as a restaurant. It is divided into three seating areas and some has low ceilings and exposed beams. Copper/brass antique artefacts adorn the walls giving a traditional feel. As you might expect from an Enterprise tied house the beer is predictable, with cask Sharps Doom Bar and Wychwood Hobgoblin Gold being the regular offering. There is a third hand pull which I understand is occasionally populated. The pints I partook of were of a particularly satisfying temperature many pubs now seeming to serve cask ale at far too low a temperature, and whilst not my normal beers of choice very good condition. The pub now serves homemade stone baked pizzas, and myself, my son and his girlfriend chose three different. All agreed that these were exceedingly good pizza’s and well worth the money at £8.50. These and other food offerings are available to takeaway. So, all in all a very satisfying lunchtime and we decided that we should try a Sunday roast – which apparently are very popular. The pubs motto – come in as a customer and leave as a friend seems to hold true with Harry the barman and Alex the Chef taking the time to ensure we were warmly greeted, well fed and watered and made to feel at home.’
