Absolutely fantastic, tasty food, well presented and with friendly service. Frequently asked us if we needed more drinks. Now one of my favourite restaurants! Would go there regularly now

Could not have been more pleased with our visit. We asked to add a seat to our booked table of 4, and it was not a problem whatsoever. We had three young children with us, and again, this appeared no problem at all. The attention from staff was lovely, drinks served quickly when needed. The food menu is exceptionally varied, and wonderfully cooked and presented. All in all, a fantastic lunch time meal, and can't wait to return soon, well done everyone concerned.

My first visit to The Royal and definitely won’t be my last, an excellent meal. The five work colleagues I dined with all thoroughly enjoyed their meals, we all had something different and all were delighted with their choices. The sticky toffee pudding was very popular! Only slight area for improvement, it would be great to have the choice of decaf coffee please. 😁

The food felt more like a world food all you can eat buffet for £8 rather than a tapas menu for £8 a dish.

I had such high hopes and the food was really disappointing.

The staff were amazing and accommodating but the food was bland and the sauces we watery.

I would advise my friends not to go while the standards are what they are.

The only negative comment is that our table reservation was at 4.30pm and we were told the kitchen closed at 5pm giving us only 30 minutes to order additional tapas dishes.

As always excellent service, and superb food, we had two tapas to share followed by the chateaubriand, cooked perfectly. Ashley and his team do everything they can to make you feel completely safe and as normal as possible whilst following all the rules.

Until we sat down and saw the menu we hadn't realised it was a tapas restaurant. We were all 'proper meals' sort of people.
However we worked out what we wanted and the food was delicious and beautifully presented.
The service was quick, the staff excellent, everything was clean and neat.
A dessert board was shared between two and we left feeling very content.

Really lovely setting and great service. My wife had 2 tapas dishes. Lamb and Pork, which was amazing. The sides were great too, especially the truffle and parmasan chips plus the Cheesy dumplings.

My £22 ribeye was quite poor. It just wasn't seasoned therefore it was very bland. It was also way too fatty, even for a ribeye.

We would go again, but I would stick to the tapas and avoid the steak

We had an excellent meal for 2 at a reasonable price. The food was delicious and the service friendly, helpful and informative. Hygiene and social distancing were adhered to properly. It is a very popular place and we will definately be returning to try something else from the menu.

It was the best evening out in a long while. Never had tapas before and the dishes we selected were outstanding. The serving staff were friendly and helpful. There was just a 'buzz' not too loud but loud enough to add atmosphere. I can't wait to go again and in tend to work through the menu.

We had some tapas as starters. The cauliflower tapas, curry & the scallops. All Very Good.
I had the 10oz fillet steak as a main, that you could cut with a butter knife (excellent).
Although the food was v.good, having to pay extra for the side dishes makes it expensive.
Very high quality of food and taste and texture was very good.
We will go back again.

Food was all round excellent, plates needed warming as Sunday roast went cold very quick but an extra jug of gravy helped. Plenty of meat and potatoes but only three small dishes of veg between 5 was a stretch.

Lovely Tapas and Steaks. Quite pricy though. Would only go for a treat like we did for a Birthday. Service was good but the service staff kept coming to table to ask if we needed anything else and was everything ok. This happened not just once during meal .. we found this a bit intrusive . Over all a nice meal. Nice flavours

Relaxed atmosphere and service was good, the dishes are all very well prepared and tasty, I think they are just a little overpriced for the amount you get, if they were a quid cheaper on each dish I’d say for what you get that would be fair.

Food was really good. We had tapas selection and mixture of deserts.
It was a little bit noisy. We were a table of 2 and we were next to a larger table of 6. The larger table looked to be a group of friends who were very loud. They got louder the more they drank. Which was a shame as we couldn't hear one another. But would go back, maybe try the steak next time.

From the moment we walked into the Royal the staff made you feel welcome and the standard of service was seconded to none. Each member of staff took the time to talk to us and made sure we were having a great time.
The food was outstanding and presented beautifully, with a wide variety of Tapas dishes to sample.
I would highly recommend this restaurant to everyone.
We felt very safe with regards to the restaurants precautions for Covid.
Bravo, we will be back.

As a party of six we visited The Royal Wootton Bassett on a Monday evening expecting it to be a little quiet and not too much atmosphere. However, we were very wrong. It was busy with a lovely atmosphere. The decor, staff and food were all perfect. We’ll definitely visit again.

Excellent food couldn’t fault it. Great choice of menu, my only criticism is that the plates they give you for the Tapas should be warm our plate was the freezing cold.
