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

The Royal is a lovely pub with a medium sized restaurant attached. It's always busy which shows how popular it is with locals and those who have travelled for a meal. The food is great quality and all meats are locally sourced.

I am from Greece and was visiting friends in Cheltenham and we went for dinner at The Royal. Two of us had the steak at £30 to share and I can say that it was one if not the best steak I have ever had. It was cooked to perfection and was so tender and delicious. I have visited may... More

As our local pub we eat their quite regularly with family and friends. The food is always at a high standard, and the service consistently good. The owner and staff go out of their way to make children and families welcome and as a consequence many people who live locally love the place. It helps that so much effort has... More

Visited on a sunny afternoon and although it wasn't busy, there was other visitors in the beer garden with us. Staff were welcoming and friendly, lunch menu was good and it is fairly priced. Our meals didn't take long and wow what portion sizes! You certainly get both value for money and high quality. Would recommend and definitely visit again.... More

Staying in Cheltenham on a visit from NZ we had this pub recommended by a family member. It lived up to the recommendation and we dined their twice, once a lazy sunny afternoon meal in the garden with good friends and good wine, once with family with a very small child. Neither time did the pub not impress

I visited with my boyfriend and 9month old baby on one friday evening. The staff were very helpful and welcoming. Perfect pub for children and families. Great baby changing facilities and a lovely fenced off garden area so no risk of dog or children running onto the road whilst you enjoy the large beergarden. The selection of drink both soft...

Arrived for a late lunch on Bank Holiday Monday May 25th 2015. We ordered the fish & chips .The very small piece of fish was full of bones and was not very fresh. We both had similar meals. I complained about the food and was informed that the manager would be told. We left after paying the full price, but... More
