Following a poor review from a friend, thought I should add my experience of the Royal. My family and I go here around 6 times a year for a carvery and have always enjoyed. The latest was a table I had booked for Mothers' Day for my Mother-In-Law. We were not disappointed. While the Royal have put the prices up (not surprising in this climate), the food was consistently good. Not amazing, but got what we paid for. The meat, as always, was generous and the veg was plentiful - not the best, but not bad for that environment where you have to keep it hot for an unknown volume of people. I have always found the staff helpful and polite. I am not keen on the area around the back, so asked for a table in the window. I was told they don't normally have tables of that size in the window, but would see what they could do. They sorted it - well done to all at the Royal - thank you - we will continue to support you.
