Founded in 1832, The Royal is one of the oldest and finest hotels on the Isle of Wight. Originally built as a coaching inn called Fishers Hotel, it became known as The Royal Hotel after enjoying Queen Victoria's patronage. The restaurant is set in a grand dining room hung with portraits and chandeliers, where you can enjoy good value light lunches and sophisticated dinners where old favourites are offered alongside more modern dishes. The menu reflects the abundance of quality produce harvested from the Isle of Wight’s bountiful coast and countryside, cooked with flair by a team of 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.
