Welcome to The Royal. All our dishes are lovingly made in house by our head chef Rob & his team of passionate foodies. We don’t have a walk-in freezer full of a thousand ready meals or a wall of microwaves – so from time to time we may sell out of our delicious fresh dishes. If you have any questions relating to allergens, we’ll be only too happy to help. If you do have an allergy, please let us know so we can be extra careful when cooking your food!
