50 years after we first met my friend came back to Cheltenham visiting, after coffee at home we came to The Royal as we know they have a good reliable and varied lunch menu...we both had the Thai beef Salad and it was Lush!.... Crumble of the day was too!

Contrary to the experience of a previous contributor, we had an excellent Sunday lunch today. The service was prompt, efficient & friendly. The three members of our party all had different choice of meat (beef, lamb & pork). All were cooked to perfection and the beef was medium rare - beautiful! Would certainly recommend The Royal and would eat there... More

This is one of our favourite local places to eat. We have always had good meals from here, however the past week we have had 2 disappointing experiences. The most recent was this Sunday where we had a party of 10 people for lunch. Half the party opted for the roast beef and the rest for the roast pork. We... More

The whole experience was ok, but that was the problem. It has the potential to be very good and may be on another visit it may live up to that expectation. The service did not make one feel valued and the food was frustratingly nearly very good. The pate was a touch bland and the Royal Pie had 2 to... More

Sometimes you forget what's on your own doorstep - three of us had lunch at The Royal today, one had the Duck Confit, one a rump steak, while although I've had it before, I went for the belly pork. All three were excellent, the ales were good, service was leisurely - fine, so were we - and the Eton Mess... More

Spacious, welcoming, clean, and with a lovely garden possessing a terrific view of the church and Cleeve Common in the distance. Good standards are maintained as it's part of a mini chain in Cheltenham with The Strand and Exeter Arms, as far as I know. Lunches are good value with usual staples, very reasonably priced. They have a good and... More

We came here for Sunday lunch as we have wanted to check The Royal out for some time. The pub has a really nice feel about it, with plenty of space outside as well. Nicely decorated. The beef and pork roast were brilliant, the crackling with the pork was perfect. They did forget to bring over the veg, but as... More

One of our regular haunts. A great atmosphere, good choice of ‘proper’ beer, and very tasty food with generous portions. This time I had king prawns which were delicious and shared a Rib eye steak with a friend. Fabulous. I am not a desert person but like cheese at the end of the meal and didn't see this choice on...
