We're lucky enough to have bought a house within 10 mins walk of The Royal. A beautiful pub with amazing views and and enviable outside space perfect for summer lunching! I've previously had both a ploughmans and the lighter bite fish and chips (not at all small) both were really yummy, but I highly recommend the fish and chips a light batter, flakey fresh fish and gorgeous fat chips! We've been back again and again!

Thank Emily B

As I am going to be overseas for Christmas 2013 the Royal agreed to host a meal for 29 people for an early Christmas Dinner.
Not only did they go out of their way to help but the food was amazing.
Out of the 29 guests everyone agreed that the food was superb and the service was first class with a friendly approach to us, even though it was normal saturday night service for them.
The staff all went above and beyond what was needed to make the night truly special for everyone involved with the management making everything run so smoothly.

Cant thank them enough for making the night so special and can highly recommend for not only party bookings but also after having a sneak preview at their amazing Christmas dinner.

Food as usual was to a extremely high standard and was obvious that the chefs take great pride in their work.

Been going to Royal for years for drink, take dog to beach etc. No problem. Nice place. Today my daughter and I decided we would have Sunday lunch instead of cooking. £9.99? Thought that pricey but expected a nice meal. Luke warm, Not enough food. Daughter asked if instead of meat she could have extra veg. Got 3 extra potatoes. Unless of course the small dish of soggy veg placed before us was for us to share. Never Again. Recommendation for a freshly cooked Sunday lunch at £6.95 far superior than slop which was served us today - the Miner's Rest, Long Ashton. They'll be getting my custom from now on.

Fish and chips to die for, a standard is as much as you can eat, beautiful white fish in a light batter, Golden chips that are piping hot, along with mushy peas and home made tarter sauce. delicious.

Service very quick and polite staff, well worth a visit

The service was speedy and the meal tasty. Plenty of room in the garden for kids to run around, and a good area for walking.
