About Royal Standard of England
Welcome dear Pilgrim to the oldest free house in England.
For Over 900 years, this hostelry has been known throughout
the land for giving shelter and hospitality to the wayfarer.
Go in peace.
Go Gently, Pilgrim.
Wonderful place, all staff very friendly and helpful, food was lovely and so much choice, great setting and just a great place, with so much history, I will visiting again soon and would recommend to friends and family :)
Fantastic historic pub. Would highly recommend. Food was great.
Sitting on the terrace was very pleasant. We would like to think you could arrange so dining outside could continue well into the cooler months.
Superb occasion with wonderful service and food
Fantastic food and atmosphere!!!
Wonderful food and drink as always. Service outside could have been quicker, we required some condiments for our food and it was a while waiting for them to arrive.
As usual a lovely roast dinner, highly recommended.
Yorkshire’s were a bit overcooked. But lovely as always.
We had an excellent meal, the staff were very polite and attentive, will definitely return in the future.
Lovely place, great atmosphere, pleasant staff. Food OK. Not a mask to be seen - I found this very refreshing but have to agree with others who say that this is covid unsafe.
Pub is amazing. Food was outstanding. Staff excellent. Only down point was the time it took queuing at the bar. But nonetheless that was probably more to do with covid than anything else. Will definitely be coming back. We had garlic prawns to die for! And the pork belly and lamb shoulder were both outstanding. Meat was really tender, vegetables and potatoes perfectly cooked and the portions were just right. In all honesty one of the best meals I've ever had!
Disappointed at the lack of COVID prevention measures. Food was OK but not as good as it has been in the past - the lamb as tasteless, some of the mussels were very small. £100 seemed like a lot for what we had. The atmosphere, of course, was as good as ever. Staff were friendly and helpful, though not good at distancing, especially as no face coverings were worn.
Great lunch in the sunshine - very dog friendly too
A time since I’ve been there (lockdown) but I’ve been coming off and on for nearly 50 years-always been my favourite pub and latterly restaurant
Lunch menu a bit restrictive, very few light options, mainly full meals
Good food and service at a value for money price. Quite than normal but to be expected in current times.
It was a lovely lunch! The Midsummer Murder pie and Sausages and Mash were very yummy. The service was great and the atmosphere was really special in the historic pub.
Game pie would have been even nicer with a bigger selection of vegetables, especially as it was quite expensive. Appreciated the kindness of the manager.
Well run pub , good management and friendly staff .
Service as usual was attentive without being obtrusive and the atmosphere of the pub is second to none. The ambience is the reason we return again and again and the staff are always a credit to this establishment that we've been going to for over 20 years. I have deducted a star as the quality of the roast has gone significantly downhill and at almost £20 it needs to be much better. Seasoning was not detectable on the vegetables, all of our party commented the meats were bland and the gravy that was once a treasure has gone. I don't doubt however with this establishment the RSOE will improve on this.
Lovely lunch and beautiful pub. Would say slightly over priced.
Table rather small for four of us.
The Royal Standard is an old favourite of ours and a very pleasant experience. Service a little variable and when we visited all of the bookings were being put in the ‘new’ hall room which doesn’t have the same atmosphere
