“Tired bar in a hotel of former glory”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013

Expensive drinks, quite nice decor but not very. Worth a visit - if you have been everywhere else first. Unbelievably average. Could be the best place in Ashby to go for a drink but sadly needs some money spent on it.

“Two for £10.00 deal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

The royal offers a two for £10.00 every week night and you would have to go a very long way to find a better value meal. All meals are freshly cooked to order, so you might have to wait for a short time but sitting in the smart well furnished restaurant with full table service the time passes quickly. My wife had turkey and sage pie which was cooked to perfection with chips and peas, and I had a home made beef burger with all the trimmings and chips, which was also perfection. Excellent waitress service and also on reception. If you have the full 3 course meal you also get a free drink each, which is what we had on our previous visit there. Again it was very very good.

“Sunday carvery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013 via mobile

Sunday carvery in a party of thirty people was very good. Good choice of meats, plenty of vegetables and good range of desserts or cheese and biscuits. Good value in a relaxed environment. No complaints at all and will be back again.

“Good food, good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

After staying at the Royal for over a month on business we can say in summary that the food is diverse and to a reliably good standard. It also offers value for money with an average of £7-8 for a main course.
A very pleasant recently refurbished venue with a well stocked bar.
The serving staff do their best to please, including off-menu custard!
