Mike and Nicki have been the landlords at The Prince of Wales Ham Hill since October 2006 although Mike has been in the pub trade for over 30 years.
”It took us a long time to find this pub but we knew it could fulfill Mike’s dream of owning and running a pub as he envisaged it, and that was without a lot of tick boxing and managing it from behind a computer.
“The open spaces were ideal as we have a young daughter and we knew we would end up with dogs, we have two. Bono is a chocolate lab who knows exactly who buys him biscuits and even recognises their cars so he can go and welcome them with his puppy dog eyes. Max is a sprocker who is as mad as a box of frogs. you will hear us on our walks as he barks his way around, hence he carries a ball to muffle the sound!!
“You never tire of the views and we are settled here with Amy in a local school.
“Dogs are very welcome in the bar. We also provide water troughs and a hose outside for dogs and wellies. There are hooks for dog leads on tables outside and even dog biscuits available at the bar. We also have two therapy horses who visit us on a regular basis.”
