My favourite takeaway. Do really good breakfasts and my usual king rib suppers. Well worth the wait and cost. Staff are always pleasant

Visited here on a Thursday night with the family as our kitchen was being renovated. My first choice of Chicken Pie was unavailable, I went back to order Lasagne and chips and that was also not available. Meal and occasion ruined, I went home and had yet another Microwave Meal.

From the high end decor & furnishings to the smartest uniformed staff to the tasty well presented home made food The Cafe Royal ticks all the boxes. Do not expect a chip shop expect a friendly pleasant wonderful food experience every time and a massive amount of choices on the menu.
