“Good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2014

Not typical pub food - a little skeptical but pleasantly surprised. The food was very tasty and reasonably priced. After our first meal, enjoyed so much that returned for a second.

“Best pub meal in Portland”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2014

We live in Portland and often come here if we feel like some decent pub food. We think it has the best pub food in Portland. In winter there is a cheery fire. As a tip you can get the same food at the bar for a lower cost... but we prefer the dining room.

“Fail !”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2014

Have reviewed this hotel twice, both positive. However on Sunday last we returned. We selected our table [ 13 -must have been ominous ] and waited for the usual delivery of menus [ they are not on the tables ] and waited ...and waited. During this time, approx. 15 minutes, we were passed by the waitperson at least four times without acknowledgement. Finally we walked out.

There is a push in Portland to support local business. Yeah, right. We can only trust this was a one off occurrence, but we are dubious about returning despite the good food.

On this visit, a monumental FAIL !

“The royal hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2014 via mobile

Tried this hotel on a Saturday night and was lucky to get the last table. Hotel had a large function and was very busy with other diners. Under the circumstances the staff were good and food was great considering how busy they were. Recommended for a good pub meal
