Was really nice unfortunately in the conservatory it was very drafty and cold, can see they were doing their best with portable heaters, and we did get moved inside to a warmer table.

A visit to The Royal is always a treat. From the moment you walk in you are impressed with the warm welcome and the lovely decor. Of course, what you look for in a restaurant, is good food , and The Royal never disappoints ! Consistency is imperative in a restaurant, and The Royal ticks that box. Whether you are there for the Sunday roast or the selection of tapas you are in for a treat !

Don’t know what it is about ambiance But twice we’ve been and can’t put finger on what is missing to complete ambiance!!!

Food was very nice although my meat was a little tuff and maybe could have done with a few more vegetables.The star of the show was the roast potatoes that were really nice

Very nice meal but not on the best table which was next to the kitchen. Which for a busy Sunday service staff were in and out constantly which spoilt of the meal a little which was a birthday treat. No little extra touches for a special occassions like you get at some places when they are aware of the occassion. However you can overlook this when the food is as enjoyable as it is at the Royal.

Good honest food.

Delicious!! I'm vegan, as if the options available weren't enough chef was readily agreeable to adapt vegetarian dishes as they were freshly prepared/cooked. Staff were very attentive & welcoming. Will definitely be going back.

I can see why the Royal is usually booked up well in advance, just by chance we managed to get a last minute booking and we were not disappointed. We had cote de bouef to share with chips, poutine, pigs in blankets and spinach, and chocolate brownie and baileys and malteser cheesecake for dessert. The cote de bouef was a bit fatty, but everything else was good, and the desserts were excellent. The sides are quite large, so we probably could have got away with having just one side each, especially as the cote came with mustardy shallots, grilled tomatoes and a big pile of pea shoots, as well as two sauces. The staff couldn’t be more helpful. It’s a bit pricey given other options in the area, but for a treat it is ideal, and would be good for both a date night and a celebration / small group booking.

A great venue this restaurant is the best place to eat in Royal Wootton Bassett and Swindon.
What a salvation of the old Prince of Wales Pub.
Can’t stop going and enjoying the Tapas and Steaks
