I have been here a number of times with friends and my partner. Consistently good food that is excellent value and a good range of beers. The place is cosy with an open fire in the winter and we really enjoy every visit. It does get very busy for food on a weekend so booking is a good idea.

I went with 2 friends on Sat evening 25/2/17 we all ordered Fish and Chips. They had run out of fish. Disappointing but I guess you have to accept this with fresh food. The alternative we had was acceptable and well prepared. I had prebooked Sunday lunch prior to Saturdays experience so I went back on Sun 26/2/17 in the... More

Delicious Thai food both times we've visited on Friday nights in the past month (there are other types of food on the menu including the specials). The staff are super friendly and helpful and the pub itself is a small but perfectly formed delight ( including the wood fire -very welcome on some of the freezing nights recently). Best tip...

A homely pub with a real fireplace, friendly staff and the food is exceptional. I recommend the Thai food especially but the traditional pub grub is also lovely. A good selection of ales too. It's so nice to have a real pub left with a great atmosphere. The customer base is varied too and all are welcomed.

I frequent The Royal Sovereign on many an occasion due to it's friendly staff, cosy atmosphere and wonderful Thai food. Truly a great dining experience, or just kick back and enjoy the friendly company of the locals. Mark always makes you feel welcome.
