This is a very good restaurant with good service and friendly staff. The roast is very, very good and I would highly recommend this place. I went with my family for a birthday. It is good for kids, adults, teens, elders, OAP's etc (Everyone).

Been to The Royal Elephant a couple of times now and found the food and surroundings very good both times. For it's the service staff that stand out and make you feel you are that little bit special. Would thoroughly recommend.

I visited on a Tuesday evening and was somewhat put off by the fact apart from myself there was only one other couple. However the service from the staff was faultless. The food is extremely well priced and the amount is huge. 4 fish cakes approximately 6" diameter and the pad Thai was equally large. The very attentive waitress explained... More

..a local recommended this large restaurant when we were in the next village on a work trip from London, and from the lunch menu my colleague had a fabulous fish and chips but I had a dreadful and almost uneatable Broccoli bake. His batter was thin and crispy and he lapped it all up. My Broccoli Bake was frozen veg... More

Nice place, atmosphere and staff. We went for the sunday carvery and as a veggie they did all they could to accommodate my needs... I had some sort of nut loaf. They also provided veggie gravy. The chef who sorted all this out for me was lovely, very kind and couldn't have done more! The food was nice, particularly the... More

We have visited The Royal Elephant on numerous occasions for Sunday lunch. The Restaurant is well laid out with plenty of room to move around. The Sunday lunch is a carvery, one of the best in the area. The food is to a very high standard, with a very good choice. The staff are lovely and so helpful.

Great Thai food served here but on both occasions we've visited in the last few weeks (on a Friday and Saturday) it's been empty apart from us and a couple more. Service is good, but as there was only us in, not difficult . Will visit again because the food is good.

There were not many in the restaurant as England were playing at 8pm . The main difference was moving to an a la carte menu from "an all you... More
