Robber Barons are alive and well in the 21 century – The Prince of Wales, once a "place where everybody knows your name" is no more, after giving a 30 day notice of eviction to Jack and Debbie the new building owner is continuing the business as it is on his own under the name and reputation that the previous owners had worked hard over 32 years to build. (He purchased the building not the business, but is doing business under the dba Prince of Wales)
The Pub was the heart and sole of the owners who ran it and the relationships they had forged over the years...
If this new owner wanted to start his own pub at that location, well that is one thing, but to in effect steal the name and present to the world that it is the same pub was done in very poor taste by the new owner..
Jack and Debbie are currently looking for a new location to open the new POW under what name has yet to be determined.. But that pub where ever it ends up and under which ever name will be more the a sum of its parts, a place that people can go to enjoy a great beer food and fellowship that had made the POW famous world wide..
Please don't be fooled by the current owner trying and failing to replicate the pub on 25th ave..As it is now only a pale reflection of what it once was..
All my friends and I will never patronize this establishment again. The best words I can find to discribe it, is that the owner is a wolf in sheep's clothing...The POW may look the same but it's not. It's now just a building without a soul.
GREAT PLACE!!!!! – This is such a great place to have fun. The food is excellent, especially the Windsor Burger. They have a very nice selection of beer as well.
A fun hole in the wall – I love this place. It is a little hole in the wall by the San Mateo County Fairgrounds. The food is typical British fare and hamburgers.
They have "The World's Hottest Hamburger" and they supposedly make you sign a release form before you eat it.
The place is very casual so don't go all dressed up, you will feel out of place.
