The Prince of Wales
2nd and 4th Wednesdays of every month.
Lovely pub, local to a friend. Not a trad session as such, but billed as “Musicians’ Night” on their website. More a singer/guitarists’ acoustic get-together. That said, I turned up armed with flute and box and, after making discrete and polite enquiries, was warmly welcomed in to the circle and allowed to inflict a few trad tune-sets on the unsuspecting attendees, who were kind enough to allow me to play some more, in between the songs. However, I suspect if a posse of trad players turned up to batter out endless jigs and reels sets it may upset the delicate balance somewhat…..but I could be wrong. Food, such as sausage rolls etc, was laid out for the players, which is always a nice touch. Stuart the landlord is an absolute gem. Interesting variety of real ales on tap. I’m hoping me posting this here will generate a bit of well-deserved interest.

The Prince of Wales sold to new owners during the first year of Covid. The music sessions stopped with the lockdown and currently the pub is being refurbished. It would be great for the session to re start.
