App DescriptionPrince of Wales Inn Kenfig app provides details about the history of the pub, the surrounding area, other useful websites.
Describing himself as only the eleventh licensee since 1816, Gareth Maund and his wife Julie have run the Prince of Wales for the last nine years and Gareth has thrown himself wholeheartedly into the history of the building and local area. The interior of the pub is a shrine to the local area and its old customers, with photos, maps and ephemera tightly framed on every square inch of wall space.
Local to Kenfig, Owen Teale, the Welsh TV and film actor from ‘Game of Thrones’ and ‘Midsomer Murders’, agreed to take part in six short films about the history of the pub. His father had been the Mayor of Ancient Borough of Kenfig in the 1970s and served on the committee of trustees for the Kenfig estate. Owen himself used the pub as a regular haunt before he left the area to become an actor and each film involves him telling one of the historic tales handed down through the pub and its customers. The short videos are provided in the app.
