About The Royal Hotel
The Royal Hotel is a long-established Stromness hostelry now owned and operated by local couple Karen and Gareth Crichton who also own and operate The Shore Hotel in Kirkwall.
Our comfortable Hudson Lounge offers an extensive bar menu with local pub grub favourites sitting alongside our range of speciality seafood and beef dishes cooked over the chargrill. The décor evokes Stromness’ links with the North West Territories where for many years Orkneymen swelled the ranks of gentlemen explorers, adventurers and traders of the Hudson’s Bay Company. The bar boasts a fine range of malts, gins, rums and local ales and there is tea and coffee on the go from morning til night.
Please note that the hotel has no private parking though there is space for drop-off and pick-up in the street. General parking is to be found 150m to the north at the harbour and ferry terminal, or off the Back Road behind the hotel at the Old Academy with access down the Boys Lane beside the hotel.
The meal took a long time to come and they had already run out of the special meal but it was delicious and very filling
Thoroughly enjoyed our lunch - the service was excellent, very friendly - thank you
Wow, your chef is brilliant. Such delicious food. We were total idiots and forgot to mention that our son had allergies, but the staff could not have been more helpful.
Fabulous meal, thankyou
Another lovely meal thank you!
Staff were very friendly, polite and accommodating. Selection of food was good.
Big portions of good food. Excellent service.
Felt there could have been more choice on kids menu (two fish options out of three) but children enjoyed the chicken strips.
The evening was disappointing mainly due to the service. The waitress taking our order did not write it down. She returned to the table with one drink, admitting she had the forgotten the other. On returning to the bar she obviously completely forgot she was meant to be getting the drink. It was impossible to get any of the five staff attention as they were too busy chatting to each other. Eventually I had to get up from the table and go to the bar myself to get some service. This is not what I would expect when eating a meal out.
