Greetings Pilgrim

A very warm welcome to the Royal Standard of England.

Our aim is to be one of the best pubs in the British Isles, happily some other people think so as well! We are listed in The Good Pub Guide as one of the top 10 pubs in the UK and are a Pub Of The Year winner awarded by The Publican Newspaper.

Our Christmas Party menu is available from the 30th November. Click here to view the menu or give us a call to book your table.

The Pub

The pub belongs to you. The Royal Standard of England is “owned” by the customers who use it today and those who have used it over the last centuries. The alehouse has been here for over 900 years and we as the landlords, are the ongoing hosts for you in a fragment of time in the pub’s long history.

The best thing about an English pub are the people who use it. Customers make the atmosphere and character of the pub. A great pub is one that understands what customers want and give it with generosity.

When you come into The Royal Standard of England you will feel immediately like you have come home. The essence of the pub hits you in the head and heart. The building oozes history, with gnarled oak beams, flagstones and worn floors. There is a smell of wood smoke that reaches back into our collective hunter-gatherer memory of sharing a meal around a fire.
