    The food was all great, we all opted for roast dinners as well as the French cheese dish. The food was served warm but to our liking. The vegetables were all served cold and took a while to get the gravy. The lively gentleman that served us was great we had no faults with him. The girl who took payment from us was quite cold and rushed with us. Overall the food was good but the service at the end let us down

    The food was really good. It could work out as quite expensive but there are cheaper ways of ordering, have a look at the ordering for 2 option. The service was really great, very impressed with the young guys. My only criticism was that the room felt really cold. The heating was on but it had not warmed the room. Having said this we will certainly be back and I would not hesitate in recommending the Royal to friends & family.

    Food was great as per usual and would thoroughly recommend it. Lovely local beer (Ramsbury Gold). Service was excellent too, with prompt and efficient staff. I’ve put the noise level at high due to the cackling women on an adjacent table who had no social awareness. Not that this was the fault of the restaurant of course.

    Food is amazing! The ambiance and presentation to very small details. Serving hot plate was nice. The only suggestions I would suggest is to please improve the portion of the bread starter. Also the Asian pork style didn’t taste any soy sauce it tasted just like sweet chilli sauce. I thought it’s supposed to be Filipino adobo style? Apart from that we loveeee it there! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!! Few times we ate there now and we will keep coming back! Great service too! Thank you ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    very nice food, and wine. The only downside was that we felt we were rushed by the staff, as it felt that they were keen to have the table for a second sitting.

    We have been here a couple of times and each time have enjoyed the food and service. The only negative is the crumble needed more custard. We asked and were given a second thimble full but it was still not enough. Cheese board good but disappointed to be served broken crackers rather than whole ones. Presumably bottom of the biscuit barrel. These are however, very minor items and we will be going back again as overall this pub is a delight!

    As usual, the food was different - a kind of globally orientated tapas. Especially recommend the prawns, the beef roulade and the spare ribs.

    I have eaten at this venue many times and always had a lovely experience. Unfortunately we attended on Saturday night (party of 4) and the service was a bit slow, the cheese dumplings didn’t seem cooked, the chips were greasy and my partner had plastic/cling film in her sauce. The staff were apologetic and gave us a free desert which was very appreciated. Unfortunately our overall experience wasn’t great and we left quite disappointed.

    Beef was too salty as was the foccacio bread and far too much olive oil,the cheese scones were rock hard and undedone on the inside very mediocre dish,mussels and prawns were nice,desserts were nice ,cheesecake lacked honeycomb not sure what was going on with the tira-mi-su split and runny not how this dessert should be ,mentioned to the waiter but never got back to me ,very underwhelming meal.
