A great find near Ullswater, 4 of us had dinner there on Tuesday night, it was a varied menu along with specials, wonderfully cooked. If going past or looking for somewhere good this is the place. Very good and thank you.

The Royal sits in the really quiet hamlet of Dockray. Really very little there, outside of the pub and the unlimited glorious countryside. The hotel itself is an old and traditional coach house. It’s quaint and quirky and a little creaky, but utterly adorable. The rooms, while snug, are clean and functional. The staff are so friendly and helpful. We and our two dogs were made to feel completely at home. We were relaxed from day one. The menu is a delight and the ales well kept. Overall if you want a quiet stay near to Ullswater, I can highly recommend The Royal.

Really well looked after. Really nice food. Staff very friendly and helpful and a nice selection of beers and whiskies. Great for a stop off on a hike or at the end of the day if visiting the area. We felt very welcome and well looked after during our visits there for dinner. Thank you.
