Lunch and Afternoon Tea can be enjoyed in either our stylish Brasserie, Colonial-style conservatory, or the relaxed setting of the Hambrough Bar. In warmer weather, guests may also enjoy dining outside in the hotel’s south-facing garden or Geranium Terrace.
From light lunches to celebratory feasts, The Royal Hotel specialises in memorable meals, cooked with flair by our accomplished chefs, and accompanied by perfectly matched wines and impeccable service.
The Royal Hotel has achieved 2 AA Rosettes for excellent food for over 20 consecutive years and has appeared in every Michelin Good Food Guide since it's inception.
“Set within an elegant hotel is this fittingly grand dining room hung with portraits and chandeliers. Good value light lunches are followed by more sophisticated dinners where old favourites are offered alongside more modern dishes.” - MICHELIN guide inspectors
Our menu reflects the abundance of quality produce harvested from the Isle of Wight’s bountiful coast and countryside. Enjoy exquisite seasonal food matched with as selection of fine wines.
“The owner takes food seriously; 98% 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.” - The Telegraph 2017
Following the latest government instruction, The Royal Hotel is temporarily closed.
