Prince Of Wales (Little India)


Modelled on an Australian corner pub, this laidback bar and backpacker hostel has transformed an old shophouse into a little slice of Australia, with earthy colours, wooden furniture and plenty of Australian beers on the menu. There's also live music every night, usually acoustic and electric indie rock.

Great little grungy pub

Hidden in a back street in Little India is this gem of a pub. A bity grungy, but great bar food, good beers and a good selection of live music

Bit of a dive

Went to PoW with some friends - the place was full of slightly smelly and dishevelled backpackers, and there was an air of menace about one table. Sure enough there was some trouble after some beers had been consumed. Not my sort of place

Dear Jesper

Thank you for your review.

I have contacted the General Manager in regards to your review and I can assure you that the Prince of Wales will be smelling of roses by the end of the week.

Prince of Wales is now reaching its 9th year of operation and I must say, its been a lot of fun along the way. Great bands, staff and customers have come through those doors and i hope that you may give 'the POW' another chance when you are back in the area.

Once again, thanks for the review and I wish you a great week ahead.

Yours sincerely

Malcolm Davies

New food menu - fantastic, and massive portions!

When I heard that POW had taken control of it's own kitchen I was tentatively happy... I had never liked the Bergs Burgers who had sublet the kitchen and was hopeful that I might get a decent meal there at long last. And boy, did I! The Australian Counter Meal concept seems familiar in a "pub-grub" way, but it was the size of the portions at such reasonable prices that perhaps made it stand out.

In retrospect we ordered too much food - Looking at the prices I assumed relatively small portions, but they were massive! The ribs in particular would feed a small family. But the quantity did not result in a lowering of quality either. The burgers were fat and juicy, the ribs melted from the bone, and the steak was cooked to perfection.

With the Movenpick ice-cream included in the dessert ridiculously underpriced I felt like I was paying back-street prices for a 5-star dinner

The menu and chef are new, so hopefully they can maintain this great start - I will be back again for sure!

Pub Grub, Footy and Beer - It's your Local!

A great pub with a real outback feel to it! The Prince of Wales is not the easiest to find but lost wanderers generally hear it before they see it!
A great place for fans of Australian football or Rugby and very good live music. Its has indoor as well as covered outdoor seating, a projector and a few flat-screens. It is teeming with expats, backpackers and the odd local and serves typical gastro pub grub and a wide variety of beer on tap including Pilsner and Hoegaarden.
Definitely a place worth checking out with a group of 'mates' if you want to get into the Rugby hype or rub shoulders with worldly backpackers on a Sunday arvo or after work on Friday.

Nice Chill Out Location

Prince of Wales make a nice chill out location for an after-work drink, with reasonably priced beers. After hours, the backpacker's paradise has a nice quaint out of the country relaxing feel.

I also tried the "berg" burgers that share the same premise, but it is unfortunate that the burgers were just too dry and not up to par.
