“Top notch food and plenty of it”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

This just shows what you can do with a little effort and a good chef. The Royal having been closed for several years has been transformed into a local pub with a reputation for excellent food.

Five of us visited for the 2nd time and again the food was quality. The chicken and Royal (meat) pies are huge and so very tasty with a lovely pastry topping . A little tower of proper mashed potatoes and perfectly cooked fresh veg accompanied them very well. We asked for some extra gravy which was not a problem. The fish and chips were sublime and again ample portions. Coq au vin also very good.

On top of this we had a very passable bottle of red for under a tenner. Very refreshing. We will be back time and again with this standard of food at these prices.

“Great food!”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

We ate here on a Friday evening and it was very busy - best to book. We ordered the fish and chips - wow! Portions are huge so make sure to take a big appetite! The food was delicious and staff very friendly and attentive. The decor is bright and modern. A great addition to the local area.

“Excellent eating experience!”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

This i a lovely friendly pub/restaurant. We have eaten here quite a few times on lunch times and evening through the week and also weekend, every time the food and service has been spot on. Lovely to have a drink in the beer gardens after our meal and found it very friendly. We have a toddler and the staff are always accommodating. Really recommend a visit.
