“Loved the revamp!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014 via mobile

Been visiting Runswick bay and The Royal for a few years now and it was lovely to see the bar has had a facelift! Interior seating changes, new leather seats and nautical blinds. We love this little pub as it is dog friendly and serves hearty food - perfect after a long walk on the beach. The food as always was well presented, we both had fish, chips and mushy peas with homemade tartare sauce which was delicious. We can't wait to return for our next trip to Runswick!

“Disappointing Fish and Chips”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

We had fish and chips which we really fancied as we were at the seaside. Not sure but felt they may have been frozen battered fish and not freshly battered which was such a shame. Food nicely presented and perfectly edible.

“Amazing little pub with a great view ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2014 via mobile

I've been to The Royal several times and every time I want to go back again! It has an amazing view of the bay and the staff are great! The food is your traditional pub grub, the steak pie is mouth-wateringly good! I would definitely recommend! The portions are generous you defiantly get your value for money!

Me and my boyfriend shared the cheeseburger, the meat was succulent and juicy- very good quality! The service was very quick on a Friday evening, the staff friendly and service with a smile :)

“Visit every time I go to Runswick”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2014

Staff are always friendly and welcoming. Options to sit indoors or out of the terrace that overlooks the bay. I've been here with my partner, friends and family sometimes for just a drink and other times for a meal. Lovely food and great service.
