The Plate

The Royal is supremely proud of our 2 AA Rosette award, the quality of our menus and the ethos behind every plate that we are delighted to serve.

As the saying goes, ‘we eat with our eyes’ and at The Royal we take time and care to invest in the visual appeal of every dish that goes out across the pass.

Often there is an audible gasp as divine dining plates are presented to our guests… the beauty, the colour, the composition and the love for every ingredient is evident. Plating is an art form that enhances each eating experience to achieve sublime appreciation of our menu creation.

Our intention is to achieve the perfect balance of flavour and appeal, anticipation and enjoyment for each dining guest, every time.

The Produce

The Island is blessed with a cornucopia of incredibly talented food producers, whether they are passionate about their own cheese, fish, vegetables, bread or the myriad of other produce available locally.

The Royal is equally passionate about searching out the finest, often unusual, and frequently solo, artisan producers to inspire our menu dishes. From heritage tomatoes to crunchy asparagus, flavoursome cheeses to fresh herbs, flavoured oils to seasonal seafood, we take pride in sourcing locally whenever possible to reduce road miles, support island businesses, ensure freshness and intensify the taste experience of our exquisite dishes.

We value sustainability and supporting local suppliers and growers.

We believe the provenance of the ingredients shows in the end plated dishes.
