Reigate pub the Prince of Wales, Holmesdale Road has reopened after a £120,000 refurbishment by brewer Shepherd Neame, which has been inspired by the pub’s railway history.
Named after a steam train and situated adjacent to Reigate station, the pub dates back to the 1850s and was formerly a railway building owned by British Rail.
The building housed railway workers in the 19th century and the garden was used as a loading area for cattle bought and sold at Reigate market.
The brewery has completely renovated the pub to create some eye-catching features which celebrate its railway heritage. A stylish log burner welcomes weary travellers in from the cold and overhead luggage racks, historical photos and memorabilia tell the story of the pub’s railway roots.
The refurbishment has broadened the pub’s appeal and is attracting even more customers to enjoy its live music line-up.”
Forthcoming events at the Prince of Wales:
· Live music once a month, Saturday evenings:
· Sat 21 December, 9-11pm – The Velvet Undertones
· Wednesday 19 November – Wine tasting
