Our lovely local.

A great local pub. Parking, outside seating and lovely decor inside. Our only complaint is the menu is fairly limited and there are no specials. It is always very busy so be sure to book a table.

We held a family gathering at the pub. The staff were very welcoming and efficient, the food superb and great value and the general ambience a credit to the management. Well worth a visit.

My brothers local, we tend to end up here for a few drinks on a Saturday night! Good selection of ales, the staff are always friendly. A great venue. The only downside on our last visit was that even at 11:30pm, young children were riding their scooters around the bar area. Staff were doing their best to control the situation,... More

Back to The Royal again, this time with our Australian friends and we weren't disappointed. The Royal is great, whether you want a quick pint, a coffee and a snack or a full meal. I've used it many times and never been disappointed.

Pub with outdoor seating and a parking lot for patrons. Great pub food but the beer selection was not for me.

Visted as staying at local hotel. Short walk and generally good reviews. Excellant location. Good garden and seating area outside. Couldn't book a table for the evening as full so didn't eat but came by twice in the day so definitely worth a visit ..... just need to book in advance

Little biased as it's my local pub but The Royal never fails to please. Always a good selection of real ales and the luncheon menu is varied enough to please most people. I had the Ham egg and chips, great value at £6, with a cider to wash it down.

I've eaten here three times and have enjoyed my meal each time. The menu is well thought out and the portion sizes are great.

Found the Royal pub to be an excellent choice for an evening meal. They had a nice selection of real ales and the food menu was excellent to choose from. Being a Friday evening it was quite busy but we reserved a table. Still we were not rushed and able to have a drink at the bar before going through... More
