The Flask seems to get all the attention round these parts, though we're not complaining as it usually means more space in this one. The Prince of Wales' olde worlde interior may not be as rambling as The Flask's, but it's certainly on the right side of cosy. Plenty of beers on tap and the menu is of Thai and Laos origin - and there's the promise of a good Sunday Roast too. The sort of villagey pub you'd expect in this villagey part of London, it's a fine local with a well-loved feel to the place. The Tuesday quiz night, which had been a regular feature for twenty years, is so popular there it warranted the publication of a book a couple of years back. To top it off, a small terrace at the back opens out onto where the old ponds used to be: shame they're not still there, though if they were the pub would be almost too good to be true. All you have to do is overlook the gaggle of regulars who perpetually prop up the tiny bar, but steadfastly refuse to accommodate any sort of view of the pumps or give you space to pay.

The Wednesday night regulars in the bar are probably the rudest bunch of people I've ever had the misfortune of encountering in a pub. Lord of the Flies with the IQ of a gnat. If this is what intellectual Highgate is meant to be about steer clear. Go to one of the other many pubs from the RLS to the The Flask or The Bull where the people and the bar staff don't believe they can be abusive on the basis of an N6 postcode.

Very unfrendly staff and too small. We didn't stay for another one as I felt fainting!.
Never again!
