Also as the hotel bar is open til midnight I should imagine it would be very noisy outside in the warm summer evenings until... More

Had sunday lunch here 24/8 family of 4 adults and 2 children. Lovely big table clean highchair provided for our youngest. Good choice of meat i chose beef but was a bit rare for me so didnt eat it. Great choice of vegetables, delicious cauliflower cheese and gravy was great. Would return again.

Had a meal here, food was good and portion sizes were better than expected. The 1 main complaint was the bar staff could take lessons on customer service from the young, polite and courteous waiting staff (Shannon), would visit again but not in a hurry.

We visited the Royal on 3.8.14, for a carvery. It was excellent. The beef was cooked just perfect. Veg & trimmings fantastic. Staff friendly. Thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Can not comment on Hotel itself, as locals will be back for more next weekend.

This hotel tells no stories that are not made true. Look sharp and read carefully and you will not be suprised. We didnt.....and got the room without view. If only we read better!!! The people are experts, the food is good and the ambience tops it all. Siiting outside when the weather permits or inside if it gets colder. Nice... More
