The bar area in restaurants are normally not reserved. Was a little put off by being asked to move to another table. The one we sat at didn't say reserved and the table they wanted to move us to was the same size. Restaurant has a habit of saying they are booked when they have no patrons. I wonder how... More

It's relatively rare to find anew here that delivers on taste, value and service time after time. We've been visiting the royal for a number of years, every couple of months and it certainly does. Even when busy, the staff are amazing - cheerful, attentive ad fun. Great selection of ales- drinking the Velo last night & the girls enjoyed... More

This pub is mobbed with kids every weekend, and weekdays and week nights in school holidays. Which is great for the kids, they take over the beer garden and have great fun running around and screaming while their parents drink buckets of fine wine oblivious to the noise and chaos which equal Nice fat profit for the pub, who do...

I have now visited the Royal in Charlton Kings on several occasions. The fantastic food I ate on my visit to this restaurant was exceptionally good and set my expectations. Sadly on subsequent visits, the food has not been to quite such a high standard. Could this be due to the fact that this restaurant is always so busy? It... More

We dropped in here lately for drinks and we were delighted we did. We sat out side in the nice sunshine and enjoyed some lovely ales and wines. Great pub and service as usual.
