Firstly I will say that portion size is very generous and in general the food is quite tasty. However quantity does not mean quality ! I had braised shin on a bed of thyme mash. There was loads of tender tasty meat but the thyme overpowered the mash in quite a lot of mouthfuls of food and apart from meat,... More

I recently visited with colleagues/friends. I was looking forward to it especially as I'd heard the many good things about this local pub turned eatery. I wasn't disappointed; the food is lovely, staff friendly and great atmosphere. I can only comment on my meal of a large 'chicken and leek pie' which was huge. Being a full large dish with... More

We are regular visitors to the Royal, our last visit was very disappointing. Two large families were sat near our table, both had young children with them. The parents were just sat there while the kids were shouting and jumping all over the chairs. This went on for nearly an hour while the staff just looked the other way. We... More

If you want to go for a pleasant lunch this is the place to go. Delicious pub food at great prices. We had steak in ale pie, beer battered haddock and liver and onions. All were lovely. Can't wait to return

Having heard good reports of this venue just 15 mins walk away we took the unexpected free night as an opportunity to judge for ourselves - and we are so glad we did. Our starters of prawn cocktail and smoked haddock with black pudding were classy in presentation, tasty and sizeable. My partners Pan fried chicken breast with asparagus was... More

I visited here yesterday for lunch with my Grandad and mum. The pub is unassuming from outside and set back from the road so we nearly missed it. We were recommended it by word of mouth and thought we'd give it a try and were glad we did! I ordered the burger (kop out I know) my mum the mushroom... More

We've been going to the royal almost weekly for a few years. The food is gorgeous, the specials get changed regularly and are always worth a try. The staff are so friendly and always make you feel welcome and valued as a customer, would recommend to anyone.
