(Micro)pub of the week: Prince of Wales

We’ve another new opening to shout about – this time, not far down the road from us.

The Prince of Wales micropub opened its doors in Chippenham last week and is already pulling in royally good reviews.

Serving real ale, cider and craft beer, plus a small selection of gin and wines, its supplier focus is very much on regional and English independent producers. Traditional bar snacks, such as pork pies and scotch eggs from the local family butcher are available too.

This month, our deliciously intense Steam Town IPA is on the bar; a beautiful craft style beer, befitting of these new surrounds.

The Prince of Wales is Chippenham’s first micropub and we wish it every success. Given the customer love it’s already attracted, we say put this new hotspot on the weekend hit list. Cheers!

Phew, where has the time gone? We’ve been brewing for almost 15 years.

We’ll never produce factory style beer. Our creative brewers use hop flavours to their full, forever artful in the quite wondrous production of naturally flavoursome beer.

Our roots are firmly in the West Country, where we continue to be inspired by the engineering triumphs of the late great Isambard Kingdom Brunel.
