The Pub is the Hub believes pubs should be hubs of community life and provides essential support to help pubs broaden their range of services.

His Royal Highness pulled a pint and viewed a traditional sign painting shop during a tour of the brewery. The brewery has an on-site pub sign studio, where all their pub signs are hand-painted by artists.

The Prince put the finishing touches to a plaque, featuring shire horses, which was painted to commemorate the visit.

The Prince also viewed the stables of shire horses Monty, Max and Archie, who deliver beer to pubs in Devizes each day.

Wadworth brews real ale and operates more than 200 pubs in the south west of England. The brewery has kept many of its characteristics from when it was founded by Henry Alfred Wadworth in 1875.
