The kitchen at The Royal Hotel is currently closed in response to the coronavirus pandemic - bookings are however available for drinks and pool tables below. We're looking forward to re-opening soon!

Booking Terms

In line with current government coronavirus guidelines we have some additional measures we kindly ask you to follow:

We can currently only accept bookings for maximum 6 people from up to 2 households.

We will be operating a 1m+ social distancing system, please pay attention to our queuing system on arrival. There are waiting points outside the front door, inside the foyer and at the end of the bar. Please only move forward where the space ahead is clear, or you are directed by staff. Please sanitise your hands on entry - gel dispensers are available at the front door.

Please wait at the end of the bar to be shown to your table - please don't approach the bar.

All drink orders will be taken and served at tables only. Contactless payment is available up to £45.

Please remember that you should stay in the group you arrive in. We will discourage movement between tables and around the premises generally.

Running late? In the event of a no-show we will try to contact you by phone, if we cannot get in touch with you we may release your table after 15 mins.
