The rooms at the royal are very run down, mine had a hole kicked in the wall! The bathroom was poorly fitted, shower head wouldn't stay up and the water temperature was either scalding or cold. The pub bit is fine, usual Green King style chain pub, food was average. On the up side the beds were very comfy and... More

First visit since the refurbishment and love it! Really modern interior, it looks fresh, clean and tidy. Same good value menu. Plenty of opportunity to watch sports if you want to (only critisism would be those dangly lights - get a bad angle and they land right in the middle of the tv) went for the usual burger and a...

We went for a meal here 3 weeks ago with friends. As we walked in there was an offer outside on the A-board, 2 steaks and wine for £20 (there were no specific time or dates listed). We found a table and went to order drinks at the bar. It took just over 15 minutes to get served for 2... More

Visited on 18/11/16 as a spur of the moment thing. I used to work here 5 years ago and it has seriously been neglected since then. The ceilings were rotten, the windows were rotten, we ordered our meals, the chilli nachos came without sauce and we're freezing cold, the mains were delivered and we were told by the waitress "sorry...

Called for a quick lunch as can usually rely on quick, great value food here. Just had the plain burger deal - burger and skinny fries with a pint for £6.39 each. It is what you would expect, decent basic food, nicely cooked and well priced.

The staff are friendly and helpful but the pub is now in very poor condition . It's ok if you don't look up at the ceiling which in quite a few places has had leaks and looks like it might fall down on you . The men's toilets are a disgrace as the floor is constantly wet and they smell... More

Attending local theater with local friends. I stayed the one night only. The staff at the bar etc were great. As always (I have stayed before on a number of occasions) The food was good and served with a smile. The room was good and a guaranteed good nights sleep, as i find the beds very comfortable. All in all... More

2 years ago we chose this venue to cater for our wedding, 2 years later and the staff, food and environmental quality are all still as high.

Nice hotel. Great meals and friendly bar staff. I find it not as popular as it used to be. However, if you fancy a meal for two for£10 and steak and chips I say try this place.
