The Prince Regent Inn, Market Hill, Cowes


This is Regent House, Market Hill, Cowes. Now a private house, it was once the Prince Regent pub, with the original building dating back to the 1830s.


The older building was described as being used, ‘by a very rough class’ and featured regularly in the local newspapers of the time for theft, drunkenness, child neglect and even selling beer to an underage child.


Eventually the pub was rebuilt in 1910, in the style you see it today. Throughout its history, the pub had a constant string of landlords, but finally closed in the 1950s.
