    First time here. And won't be the last. The food was amazing. The service was perfect. The A/C was a little too high. So a bit chilly to start. But bearable. Not enough to put me off visiting again. We had the Tapas. And the dishes were lovely. So tasty. I can't wait to return and try more of the menu.

    We come here often, and have always been really happy. Yesterday we came for our anniversary meal, and we waited 30 minutes for someone to come and take our order. It wasn’t very impressive. Trying to get someone’s attention was really difficult also. Even considering most of the service staff were stood chatting. The food was great, however it also took a further 40 minutes to be delivered to our table. Although perfectly cooked, we weren’t pleased again with the service when presented to us at the table. I hope this will be sorted, as it really made our experience less likely to come back. Which is a shame as we recommend people all the time from our past experiences.

    My nephew and his wife came down from Yorkshire to RWB for the Bank holiday. We new The Royal served excellent tapas food as from our previous visits there. We (4 of us) chose various tapas dishes to share. My visitors were really impressed with the quality and quantity of the dishes. All were well presented and I personally was really chuffed that my nephew and his wife very much enjoyed the food. We had an excellent evening which was further enhanced with the friendly service we received from the staff. Great pub, great food, great staff. Definitely 5 stars all round.

    We booked a table for lunch for four of us with little notice and were pleasantly surprised. At first glance at the menu we weren’t sure if we would be able to eat anything but we all managed to find tapas dishes that were delicious. We had the 4 mini puds and they were just right.

    As we were a party of 7 on a lunchbreak, it would have been better to have more than 1 server bring out the copious plates of tapas - seemed to be waiting a while between 1 set of dishes for the next set to arrive. Food was excellent !

    In general tasty tapas.It was very busy with friendly staff and good service .On the negative our guest did not rate the jambalaya as anything special and the cheese dumpling did not taste of cheese and was not cooked in the centre so inedible. The rest of the food was good and nicely served.

    We were disappointed to be greeted by a girl who said our table wasn’t ready . There wasn’t enough room at the bar for the 5 of us so we stood in the way someone having to move all the time for staff.

    The food is always amazing unfortunately 3 of the signature dishes were not available which was hugely disappointing as this left very little I actually enjoyed. The staff were lovely when I mentioned this but as I’d already paid no deductions were made. The booking was for a dear friend and myself and had waited 5 weeks as so popular, I just felt that we were not told until the time of order of the problem with dishes being able that we had to seek alternatives that were not really to our taste. Hopefully this won’t happen again as really like this restaurant

    Superb 2 sirloin steaks for my friend and I and a very good but expensive (I know how much it is from a merchant) Italian red. Peppercorn sauce was excellent as not meal and mild. We come here every 2 months to meet up and this is our third trip.

    The food was brilliant - as expected having visited before. The service was OK, but we visited on a Monday evening when it was quiet and all the other guests had departed before us, so at 8.45pm the staff were hanging around us making us feel uncomfortable as they obviously wanted us to leave so they could go home. I love this pub and the food is always fantastic, but this experience took the shine off what would have been a 5 star review.

    Another fantastic meal, only Slightly marred by the feeling we were be rushed through. Looked at the website this morning and see they are only open until 8.30 We were booked in for 7.30, and were badgered to order drinks, then food. There is attentive service and then there is nagging… it’s a fine line I’ve never known restaurants to shut so early. We were the last ones out… Maybe we are old fashioned- we like to relax and enjoy the experience, enjoy the wine etc..

    A lovely quaint place, staff so friendly on arrival and throughout Sunday Lunch, food amazing as usual beef was tender and pink just how I like, they will ask on ordering how you would like it, the only criticism I have is the veg, be nice to have more varied, red cabbage is not for everyone's liking, if you need extra veg, gravy, ask as the staff are so accommodating, Yorkshire Puds homemade and divine, roast potatoes are large and crispy. Desserts, good selection and tasty, Cocktails, can't leave without having a cocktail. All round you will enjoy for couples, families and groups, everyone is made to feel special.

    Excellent food and otherwise good service was totally negated by having to suffer shouting and raucous behaviour from the next table. It ruined our evening. We know a nearby table left early because of the noise, and we asked (to no avail) to be moved to another table for our dessert. You literally could not have a quiet conversation as it was drowned out by the nearby noise. We are regular customers, but have never left so disappointed. Based on this conservatory is to be avoided due to the acoustics. We must emphasise that the food was excellent and our only objection about the staff, was their inability to ensure that the enjoyment of other diners was not marred by a few others. I

    Service was a little slow to start with but once the order was taken the food did not take long to arrive. Delicious as usual. The only other comment was that the wife thought the bread that came with the prawns was too salty.
