The Prince of Wales was located on the left-hand side of the road heading up the valley road from Lower Lydbrook. The Bell Inn was a little further down on the western side of the road (B4234).

William Sidney Jones was the owner and occupier of the Prince of Wales in 1891 and the pub, categorized as a beer house, traded as a free house. It had an annual rateable value of £14.0s.0d. Twelve years later we find Mrs William Jones as the owner, which begs the question had she been widowed? Closing time in 1903 was at 10 pm.

The Prince of Wales was believed to be still trading in 1935 although I have not found any contemporary records to prove this. The property is now residential yet still bears the name the Prince of Wales.
