I was initially put off by the standard pub food options available on the menu but I was impressed with the quality of the food, the speed of service and the friendly staff. What lifted the experience the most though was the relaxing environment with open fires, soft lighting and comfortable alcoves.

Don't know what drew me to the Royal, but I am so glad I went in. This Green King pub is very different than any other I've visited; It is dog friendly, very relaxed with comfortable seating, open fires and a super view, set as it is almost in the highest point of town. Service was very good and the... More

Had squid rings to start which were delicious followed by 14 oz rump. Great flavour and cooked justo right. Didn't do dessert but table next to us had a chocolate dessert which they... More

Decided last minute to go out for a bite to eat and thought we would try The Royal. It was Sunday around 6pm so all the Sunday lunchers had left. The presentation of our meals and the service were first class. The environment was very comfortable, spotlessly clean and the meal was good value for money. We will most definitely... More

I've eaten quite a few times here now. The whole place has had a multi-million pound refurb. this year and is a gleaming heritage property with commanding views of some of the Wye Valley. In the sunshine, the views are second to none in the area. Last night, three of us had roast beef dinner. It was hearty, tasty, warm... More

Visited The Royal for an evening meal once again the last time was when it first opened after the refurb and all I can say is that the excellent service and food has not changed since then in fact it has probably improved if that was possible. Cannot wait for for new menu to come in well done to you... More

I visited the Royal recently for Sunday Lunch and then some days later for Lunch. The Sunday Lunch was really excellent: I had Shank of Lamb (£11.95) which was tender and delicious. The vegetables were fine. For the Weekday Lunch, I went with a friend and had the £10.99 for two menu. I choose Gammon, Egg and Chips. Perfectly cooked... More

On the face of it, the menu appeared to be fairly ordinary. However, when our food choices appeared it was beautifully cooked, plentiful and delicious. There were three of us and we all enjoyed all three courses. The restaurant was comfortable and pleasantly decorated and the waiting staff attentive and friendly. We will certainly return!
