Been to romneys many times and it's always good, great for families with young kids, great play area, but grown up enough for teenagers. Food is good wether from the carvery or the extensive menu, good inexpensive wines and beers, service is very good. Friday/Saturday pays to book a table.

Mussels were a tasty appetizer, large serving. Daily soup a bit salty. My husband liked his fish and chips. Service was fast and efficient.

We were staying in an apartment in Romneys and had a meal here as well. The food was fairly standard pub grub, but of a good standard. The fish and chips were well received and my burger was excellent. The vegetarian option was also of a good standard. Definitely worth a return.
