Prince of Wales
SECOND VISIT: SUNDAY 12 OCTOBER 2014
Thanks to engineering works and rail replacement buses I had no choice but to arrive in Didcot an hour before I needed. Oh, well, nevermind, I could always have a pint in the Prince – it wouldn’t be super-exciting pint but a pint it would be. The cask beer choice was 6X or GKIPA or Everards Tiger. I ordered a pint of Tiger but by the time it was half poured I noticed that the fridge contained cans of Dead Pony Club and Hobo Lager and two or three canned products from Backyard Brewing, which I think is a Carlsberg offshoot. Damn!
The clientele of the pub eem to have split themselves into two camps. Nice family folk head to the left as the enter and the riffraff heads to the right. I sat in the middle. The Tiger was in good condition. I returned to the bar and ordered a plate of Macaroni Cheese and a can of Hobo Lager. The Macaroni Cheese was tasty but not exactly plentiful. The can of Hobo was stuck in my pocket to be consumed at a later date.
