We dined here with some visitors lately and we were very pleased with what he had. We sat in the bar first and enjoyed our drinks in a pleasant setting. We then adjourned to the dining room for our meals. We had the Thai salad and spicy chicken wings for starters which were very tasty. We then had the salmon,... More

It was a wet miserable night and The Royal priced a warm welcome. The decor was nicely done. The food was delicous and the stall attentive but not intrusive. Good wine list too.

Had Sunday Roast here recently, food was ok, desserts a bit pricey at half the cost of the main course for the quality. Staff were very pleasant . Doubt if would be back

Thank you very much for your review. Our Sunday roasts are very keenly priced at £10 per main course. The price for the starters and the desserts remain the same as they are throughout the rest of the week. We believe that this policy offers our Sunday lunch customers fantastic value for money. I'm sorry if you disagree. I can... More

We went in here for a light lunch, after looking at the menu on the website. We ordered Brie, bacon and redcurrent sandwich, having had this several times in other eating houses and know how we like it. But unfortunately we did not receive this, instead it was some other sandwich, we had a feeble apology and another wait for... More

Thank you very much for your constructive review. As you can see from previous reviews our service is rated very highly. Obviously we were remiss on this occasion and we failed to realise how unhappy you were with your sandwich. I have spoken to the team and reminded them that we must ensure all our customers leave happy, happy, happy.... More

As usual, the Royal and its team provided another great Sunday lunch for our party of seven. The portions are generous and the food is beautifully cooked. What more can you want? Recommended.

The four of us have had another great Sunday lunch at the Royal. You can't beat the roast. Proper portions and as many vegetables as you can eat. Treated ourselves to starters this time. Glad we did.

Great to read you had a lovely Sunday lunch. It's always good to know that we are doing it right. Please don't tell everybody though because it's only a tenner for a main course! My accountant isn't happy to say the least. Anyway. thanks again and hopefully see you again soon, Kind regards, Mike Huysinga More

We went to The Royal as a group from work and the staff were very friendly and there was a ye olde worldy type of charm to the place. There was a good selection of beers and real ales (Golden Sheep was lovely) too. The only letdown was the quality of the food as I feel it could have been... More

Thank you for your review. I am extremely pleased that you enjoyed our service and the general atmosphere. However, I'm obviously less impressed that the food fell short of your expectations. Unfortunately you did not mention what you actually ate so I am at a loss to feed anything back to the team. I would like to suggest that in... More

In too many pubs you feel like an interloper if you are dining where others are drinking, but in the Royal they successfully mix the two. The food is good pub grub, generous portions if a little bland. The service is fast to the point of being rushed. The surroundings are smart, the furniture is solid and the floor is... More

Thank you for your review. You obviously had a great meal however, the service was maybe a bit too efficient. I have reminded the chefs that at certain times our customers do like to enjoy a more drawn out meal. We do try to maintain a certain separation between our customers but sometimes this can be difficult especially during our... More

We have eaten here several times over a period of two or three years as we don't live locally. Without exception the food and service has been excellent. We took some friends there last night, and once again experienced superb, generous portions of imaginative food which was cooked to perfection. Although it was very busy, and luckily we knew from...
