Dining at The Royal Hotel

Dining at The Royal will be a highlight of your stay on the Isle of Wight


Whether enjoying a light lunch in our beautiful conservatory or an intimate dinner for two in our elegant, lofty Restaurant, you will feast on exquisite local food, carefully matched wines and enjoy some well-deserved pampering.


A quote from The Telegraph:
“The owner takes food seriously; 98 per cent of guests eat in every evening. Our Sunday lunch went well beyond the usual roast (excellent), with choices such as pan-fried sea bass with fennel risotto and asparagus. In summer you can eat out on the terrace, where afternoon tea is another attraction.”




Fine Dining in The Royal Hotel Restaurant

A visit to our glorious, award-winning restaurant will linger in the imagination long after you return home. The menu created by our head chef Steven Harris, will delight and surprise any seasoned gourmet.


Relaxed Dining in the Bar & Brasserie

Lunch and afternoon tea are served daily in the relaxed setting of The Bar, our charming New! Brasserie or our beautiful, Colonial-style conservatory and terrace with its backdrop of rare, pink, climbing mountain geraniums.


Royal Afternoon Tea

The Royal Afternoon Tea features a dainty assortment of sandwiches with fillings such as cucumber, egg and cress and salmon. To follow, an exquisite selection of cakes, meringues, patisseries and freshly baked scones and cream all prepared lovingly by our talented patisserie chef.


Al Fresco Dining on the Rivier Terrace

The Riviera Terrace at The Royal, Ventnor, Isle of Wight, is undoubtedly one of the best al fresco eating destinations on the south coast.
