A welcoming and convivial atmosphere, lovingly prepared traditional fare, and exceptional value for money are what sets Prince Consort apart as a much-loved Southampton haunt. Homely, comfortable and inviting, the pub’s interior offers plenty of cosy corners and warmly lit dining areas for small and large groups of friends and family to retreat to.
The kitchen prides itself on serving home-cooked, crowd-pleasing pub fare, with the small team making everything from scratch. Think along the lines of breast of chicken topped with crispy smoked bacon, barbecue sauce and Cheddar, served with chunky chips and a crisp garden salad; and hand-battered fish in real ale batter served with chips, mushy peas, tartare sauce and a lemon wedge, and your expectations won’t fall short. Those with smaller appetites are catered for with jacket potatoes and baguettes with a range of tasty fillings, and traditional ploughman’s lunch platters. The pub’s specials board is always populated with a few enticing options to throw your decision-making skills a curveball.
On Sundays, the Prince Consort serves a popular three-meat roast, and if you’re planning on staying in the region overnight, the pub also boasts several comfortable letting rooms that are the perfect base from which to explore Southampton.
