East Barnet is almost a beer desert now, so it's the Prince of Wales, or hike up to New Barnet. They usually have London Pride and a few other real ales, plus Fosters, Stella and I think, Beck's Cold. More of a lager than real ale pub it seems to me. Pub food matches the furniture, on the lower (priced) end of average. The kids' menu would have Jamie Oliver running back to his Boho mates before you could say 'Whose is that Vespa in the carpark?' (And there IS a carpark!). No airs and graces here, and all the better for it perhaps, certainly seems to be a happy home to a bevy of regulars, reasonably friendly bar staff, decent service, plenty of outdoor space if you like a breath of fresh Marlboro Light, and situated appealingly opposite the Taj Mahal. There are much better pubs in New and High Barnet if you're collecting decent boozers, but the Prince of Wales is a welcome oasis in this part of town since the Cat & Lantern closed and the Drum (aka King's Head) turned into a vet's surgery. (No jokes about the availability of cat's wee in either establishment, please!)

Only pub left in East Barnet and so no effort needs to be made by the management to entice good customers and it shows.
