The sign is on a post in the car park. The sign is of a type long used by Banks's showing their golden lion. As more of their pubs are either sold off, or rebranded as Marston's, this design of sign is fast disappearing. Hopefully some will remain.

The Prince of Wales is quite a popular name for public houses. This is a relatively modern pub, probably dating from the 1960's or 1970's. The area around here was developed in the 1960's, so it is quite possible that the name was given because of the Investiture of Prince Charles as Prince of Wales in 1969. It needs to be stressed this a guess not a statement of fact.
