    The restaurant was cold and the toilets were freezing which overshadowed the meal. There was a long delay with our food and the steak came out very delayed after the tapas

    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.

    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.
