The Prince Of Wales was situated at 23 Lant Street. This pub was demolished in January 2005.
During the 1960’s and 1970's this pub was owned by Freddie Foreman. Forman was a South London gangster who ran a major 'Firm' in his own right and was also a associate of the Krays. He served 10 years for his involvement in the murder of Jack 'the hat' McVitie in Evering Road, Stoke Newington. The pub features frequently in Foreman's autobiography 'Brown Bread Fred' a great read and a window into a London that has now completely disappeared.
