Cafe Royal  

This popular pub was built last century as a flagship for the latest in Victorian gas and plumbing fittings. This can be seen in the toilets (not suitable for the disabled) where there are some fine original fittings. The stained glass wall in the seafood and game restaurant is well worth a look also. The cafe rooms have a series of highly detailed Doulton tile work portraits of historical innovators Watt, Faraday, Stephenson, Caxton, Benjamin Franklin and Robert Peel. The gantry over the big island bar counter is similar to the one that was here originally, the floor and stairway are laid with marble and there are leather-covered seats. If you look up you will see the large chandeliers hung from the fine ceilings. Beers on at the time were Caledonian Deuchars IPA and two weekly guest beers on hand pump, with about 25 malt whiskies. Bar food is served all day until 7pm and includes sandwiches, soup, chicken and steak. If you are alone there is a good choice of daily newspapers to read and if you don't fancy that there is a TV. The piped music can be obtrusive at times. It can get very busy, and the admirable d?cor is perhaps best appreciated on quiet afternoons. No children.
