Prince Harry joins Smugglers Den Inn pub quiz
We were delighted to be joined by Prince Harry for our weekly pub quiz! The prince, who is third in line to the throne, was with a group who asked for a "nice quiet table for five" at the end of the pub. We made sure staff did not stare or intrude, but made sure the prince and his friends were made to feel welcome.
Everyone was very impressed with the prince - he had such a natural air about him - and we're just so chuffed that he chose the Smugglers'.
