The Royal Bar and Restaurant 

Visitors to the Royal can enjoy panoramic sea views while they savour their drinks or enjoy a tasty meal. Located next to the grassy Tankerton Slopes, the pub’s garden offers one of the best vantage points in the area for scenery and is a great place to idly watch ships and boats go by.

The Royal began life as a small hospital for recuperating soldiers during the First World War before becoming a hotel and then the popular pub and restaurant of today.

Serving good quality ales, lager and cider and wines, alongside a huge selection of Gins, (15) Vodkas, (16) Malt and Premium Blended Whisky (21) and including a huge array of other premium spitits you will not be short of something to quench your thirst!

Daily specials and a wide range of home-made dishes, with ingredients coming from local suppliers where possible, are complemented by a choice of three or more cask ales at any time and a good selection of wines.

Regular Quiz Nights are held on the last Monday of every month. There are also two pool teams that play on a Wednesday night, along with a Sunday football team - The Royal is the centre of the community.

What our customers say: 

We will be returning with the grandchildren who are vegetarian as there is a good selection of dishes which will cater to their needs too. The welcome we received and the attentive service along with comfortable surroundings made our visit a memorable one." Helen
