All opinions are my own but the meal and drinks were gifted.
I hope you’ve all enjoyed the long weekend. Today I’m here to share a foodie review of a fab pub in Sheffield.
It’s one I should have shared last month but if you follow me over on Instagram you’ll know that things have been a little busy. I had my first baby back in the middle of March via emergency c-section so I’m just getting back into the swing of everything.
I love discovering new places to eat and drink in Sheffield so I’m excited to be sharing my thoughts and photos of The Prince of Wales Pub which is nestled away on Ecclesall Road.
It was back towards the end of January that I was invited along to check out their re-launch. Sadly I wasn’t able to make it to the launch evening but they asked me back for a visit in February. At 8 months pregnant I couldn’t say no to a relaxing evening out and the opportunity to try somewhere new.
I hadn’t heard of The Prince of Wales before but I’m so happy that it’s now on my radar. It’s a very welcoming pub, although I’d class it more as a premium pub or a restaurant.
The interior is modern with a relaxed atmosphere. The staff are all very friendly and we were well looked after during out visit.
On the evening we went it felt very cosy and snug in the pub. The decor is modern yet cosy with a warming log fire.
As we’re now well into spring and approaching the summer months you’ll be pleased to know that they have a lovely garden patio which will be perfect for sipping G&Ts on a sunny Sunday afternoon.
There’s an excellent selection of real ale, gins and much more – check out the menu. They even had Seedlip, an alcohol-free gin, for anyone who can’t or doesn’t drink alcohol.
I went for the Elderflower Sherbet. It came in a big gin glass and had a refreshing blend of elderflower, cloudy apple juice and lemonade. It went down a treat and I certainly didn’t feel like I was missing out on alcohol.
Aside from their excellent line-up of drinks it really is all about the food. They do classic pub-style grub but even then it doesn’t seem right to call it that. It’s much more than just pub food.
They have a good range of food options on offer – you can check out the menu online – I always like to have a nosey before an evening out. You can find Sunday roasts, on a Sunday, of course, sharing platters, classic pizzas and burgers plus lunch time treats and tasty desserts. They’ve also launched a full vegan menu so it’s safe to say there is something for everyone.
This is the lamb Kofta salad starter. It comes with plum tomatoes, roasted red peppers, cucumber and a mint salad and coconut tzatziki.
Koftas are one of my favourite Middle Eastern dishes and these ones were so good. The blend of herbs and spices gave this dish a rich and complex flavour. I’d love if they made a larger version as a main dish.
I picked out the Spit-Roasted Chicken with lemon & garlic confit, aioli and crispy fries.
This was a different choice for me but I loved it.
I’m trying to pick food that I don’t normally cook at home when I go out. The chicken was tender with a crisp skin and flavoured well. I opted for fries but you could go down the healthy route and get the side salad. To be honest, it could do with both the salad and the fries, for balance.
Phil had the Seared Sea Bass Fillets with ribbons of courgette marinated in lemon, asparagus, baby potatoes and broccoli.He said the fish was delicate and well flavoured alongside the crispy potatoes. It was so good that he says he’ll probably order it next time we go.
Just look at this beauty.
It’s the Melting Chocolate and Peanut Bomb.
This dessert is perfect for anyone with a really sweet tooth. It’s a chocolate bomb filled with sweet sticky toffee pudding and peanut butter cream. It comes with a cute jar of hot caramel sauce that you pour over to melt down the chocolate onto a scoop of Bourbon vanilla ice cream.
Only pick this if you love a super sweet dessert.
This is the Warm Belgian Chocolate Brownie which is also served with the moreish Bourbon vanilla ice cream. This is a lovely warming dessert, not too sweet or sickly but still rich and indulgent.
This would be perfect on a chilly evening.
If you have the chance to go Phil recommends you end your evening with an Old Fashioned. We’re both always on the hunt for the best ones around and this one certainly didn’t disappoint.
We’re going to have to visit again so I can give it a try.
Let me know if you manage to visit The Price of Wales pub. I’ll certainly be going back again, hopefully for a Sunday roast.
