The Prince is one of Newcastle’s finest pubs with a commanding street-side presence in Merewether. Freshly renovated and restored to reclaim its landmark hotel status, this classic public house is home to a cosy a la carte bistro, an impressive upstairs balcony bar, a private dining room, state of the art sports bar and a cosy public bar. At The Prince you can choose to casually dine in any of bar spaces, in our a la carte bistro, or our private dining room can be hired for groups of 12-16. Head Chef Sean Townsend (previously Muse Kitchen) and his team have created a delicious new menu in collaboration with Executive Chef and part Prince owner Tim Montgomery. The kitchen is open for lunch and dinner daily.

The Prince is an awesome pub with excellent food and service. 7 of us had lunch in the bistro and everyone of us really enjoyed our meals which ranged from Steak, Duck, Pork Belly to Pasta. After lunch we went upstairs for a few drinks on the balcony and listened to the live music. It was a great way to spend Sunday afternoon and we will definitely be back.

Congratulations on the refurbishment of The Prince of Wales - it's elegant and inviting. The food is good and you can order from the a la carte menu or the pub menu depending on how hungry you are and how much you want to spend. A winner!

Love the Prince it’s a Merewether icon! The recent renovation is stunning. Great staff, wonderful food and ambiance. Must go upstairs to the deck. It’s where it’s all happening. Thank you the Prince I will be back

Lovely meal, food was delicious. It was a very busy night in the pub so the noise level was very high. The service for the first drinks was slow, however, after these the service was good. The renovation on the pub is great and the dining area is lovely. If the noise issue can be improved it will be one of our favourite go to places. We are thrilled with the upgrade to our local pub. 👏🏻👏🏻
