Traditional Pub

The Princess Royal is a traditional family and community oriented pub set just off (and within just a few minutes walk of) the town centre. We offer a full range of services with an extensive lunch-time menu, a comprehensively stocked bar, traditional pub games including pool, darts and skittles, live music at weekends, and, above all, a friendly and relaxing atmosphere. Landlord Tim and his partner Patsy have been running ‘The Royal’ for 20 years and are still committed to working hard to achieve perfection! The Royal sets high regard on traditional respect and good behaviour, and we would ask our clients to join us in observing these same standards. Given this, all are welcome – we look forward to seeing you.
