The motto at the Prince Bar and Kitchen is ‘Fresh ingredients, freshly prepared’, and their delicious lunch options certainly live up to their reputation for fresh, wholesome food.
Situated at the heart of Athlone, The Prince Bar and Kitchen at The Prince of Wales Hotel offers a truly memorable dining experience, with lunch options to suit all tastes and budgets - whether you fancy a quiet lunch, a catch-up with friends, or a sweet treat with a cuppa.
The Prince has recently launched a new sandwich bar menu, featuring some new and tempting sandwiches and salads as well as their most popular choices. And with a selection of wholesome lunch options at the carvery, along with a tempting array of baked goods and a brand new bakery shop, there is no reason not to pop in to The Prince!
New sandwich bar menu
The Prince Sandwich Bar is exceptionally popular both with locals and visitors to the town, and their recently launched menu features a range of options all prepared in front of you.
Valerie and the sandwich bar team prepare all the ingredients fresh every morning, and there is also some delicious home baking available every day to treat yourself.
All salads and meats are prepared in-house, and diners can choose from salads, wraps, open sandwiches, ciabattas, club sandwiches, all with a choice of your favourite relishes and sauces.
If you’re looking for some lunchtime inspiration, there are tasty but healthy specials on the menu every day, ranging from stuffed pitta breads to salad plates, and not forgetting their delicious open sandwiches on their homemade brown bread.
If you fancy something hot, there are fresh soups every day, as well as homemade quiches and sausage rolls. Of course, you can also relax with a Lavazza coffee, latte, cappuccino, or your choice of a wide range of herbal teas.
The Prince’s sandwich bar is open Monday to Saturday from 9am until 4.30pm. Why not call in and see what delicious healthy options Valerie and her team have created for you today?
Wholesome carvery lunch
Head chef Darren Hollywood joined the Prince team before Christmas, and is passionate about creating dishes using the best local ingredients, using his knowledge of international cuisine and culinary skills to put a twist on traditional Irish food.
The Prince’s famous carvery lunch is thriving under his guidance, with customers getting to enjoy tasty dishes such as Asian marinated pork belly, hearty pies, and many more tempting dishes.
Every day the carvery menu offers a wide selection of wholesome lunch options, with a range of succulent roast chicken, beef, pork, and fish dishes. The menu is changed daily, with up to seven different options every day, as well as a choice of three vegetables, two potato dishes, and a selection of sauces.
With a focus on meat from Irish suppliers, and wholesome, fresh food, chef Darren Hollywood provides two roast options every day, as well as a chicken dish, a ‘wet dish’ such as stew or curry, and a vegetarian option. As always, the emphasis is on freshly prepared food; all vegetables are freshly prepared rather than bought in pre-packed.
Whether you’re opting for a carvery dish or something from the salad bar, you’ll find a choice of desserts to satisfy your sweet tooth, from homemade gateaux to cheesecakes.
Freshly baked goods
The Prince is the perfect town centre spot to catch up with a friend over a slice of cake and a cuppa!
