    Food was great.. waiter was excellent.. unfortunately, we had to wait an hour for our meal and we believe it’s over priced in comparison to other pubs in the area .. I would recommend and would return

    Not as good as usual, quite disappointed at the quality of the meat

    The RoyalResponded on May 9, 2022

    Sorry Alan, I wasn't aware of you'd had an issue. We use a local butcher and the quality is usually good but I guess the meat quality varies from animal to animal so apologies. If you're back at some point with your wife, let me know and I'll make sure the manager on shift discounts your mains by 50% on me by way as an apology. Sorry again, Jason.

    Decided to go out for tea last minute and luckily managed to get a table before service stopped, We was made to feel welcome great friendly staff and all the food we had was really good second time we’ve been recently and both times were excellent so next time we’re out for tea we will be back

    Superb food and drink! Definitely best in the area. Service was outstanding-thank you to the great guy who looked after us all (party of 10) . If I have any criticism at all it is that we were not allowed to enter the pub for drinks before our table was ready. Maybe need to think about letting folks know on your website? However as the food and service was first class it really didn’t spoil our evening.

    Average - unfortunately didn’t realise we only had a table for 1.5 hours. We had planned on spending an evening drinking and catching up with friends. Got a taxi and went elsewhere for the evening. Won’t rush back.

    Highly recommend, Attentive staff, we were seated straight away and drink orders taken, the salt and pepper halloumi bites were absolutely delicious, the steak was cooked to perfection and the sticky toffee pudding was amazing too! Overall really lovely meal. Will be back to try the roast dinners soon!

    The food was really good, did take a long time to get served though. This is a dog AND cat friendly restaurant. In fact so friendly your cat is allowed to sit on the table. When I asked if we could move table and gave the waitress the reason why she just said yes ok. What I would have liked her to do was apologise and say that’s not acceptable and she would rectify it.

    Great food and service, the only complaint I had was the fat that surrounded the gammon. Do people eat this? By the time I had removed the fat there was a really small piece of gammon my friends was larger than mine and she had no complaints. My husbands pie was lacking the filling. Overall, we will give it a try again.

    Utterly brilliant! Gluten-free identification on menu. These guys understand people who are gluten-free have friends and family. It makes sense to cater for special diets and they are ahead of the game. Food was exceptional- and consistent- we have eaten there before. Staff professional yet friendly- the perfect balance. Totally recommend
