Welcome to new Head Chef David Morris

In the meantime, we are busy getting ready for your arrival with the start of some exciting plans and development programmes for the Hotel, commencing with the creation of a fabulous new casual dining restaurant.     New Head Chef David Morris is working on some delicious new menus ready for our Spring opening and the new dining offer.

Our new Head Chef David Morris  joined the team at The Royal literally as lockdown was announced, and is keen to take up the reigns and get back in the kitchen. With over 35 years cooking experience, he has travelled the globe, and David loves nothing more than bringing the tastes and flavours of his travels to the dishes he creates. He spent several years heading up Cordon Bleu’s Malaysian operations and oversaw a five-star spa resort in the Maldives. David; who is a keen forager, will use locally sourced ingredients as he prepares some exciting, delicious new menus ready for our Spring opening.   During Lockdown David operated Taste at The Royal – an east meets west takeaway menu, with some fabulous fusion style dishes alongside our classic firm favourites.


Introducing The Melville @theroyal

The excitement is mounting;the countdown has started…The Royal RE – OPENS on Monday 17th May 2021!

Introducing The Melville @theroyal… our exciting new casual eating and dining area and wine bar.   Serving an all day café menu with light brasserie style dishes, and daily changing specials created by our new Head Chef David Morris, of Taste at The Royal fame, all with locally sourced produce and ingredients – this will be a foodie heaven.  From breakfast to lunch through to evening meals…we can’t wait to see you.

Combining vibrant interior styling, with a great warm, casual atmosphere The Melville will be the place to drop by for coffee and a pastry, for a sharing platter with a cheeky glass of Rose with friends, or a Burger and ice cream for the kids – and after 9pm (when restrictions allow) a live band or two!!

And once again; with great thanks to our friends at Dream Tipi, we are delighted to announce the return of the Giant Tipi Garden @theroyal this summer.   From May 17th bring on leisurely lunches in the sunshine, and al fresco drinks and evenings spent under a canopy of fairy lights.   We have our patio heaters, blankets and hot water bottles at the ready to keep you warm and the only thing chilled will be the wine!!

We can’t wait to see you back at The Royal.   More details on menus and pricing to follow shortly, but in the meantime please email us to register your interest in making a provisional reservation / booking.   Likewise, we would be keen to hear from any community groups etc who may be able to make use of the Tipi space.
