The 'pub on the point' entertained patrons for over eighty years. Transformed from a grand house in 1866, the Prince of Wales Hotel was known for its concerts, picnics, social events and sporting games. The hotel made national news on several occasions as the site for two inquests and following a violent brawl that led to charges of attempted murder. During World War I it was a place for military gatherings and recuperative excursions.
