Blue Scrumpy left this review about The Royal Sovereign

As is stated below, this pub is located on a street which heads down to the seafront and the pier. With the current outdoor drinking restrictions, seating options were a few small tables on the pavement at the front, or long benches and alcoves in a yard at the rear.

The pub is not currently serving real ale, although Weston's Rosie's Pig Rhubarb Cider was available on one of the handpulls, which was fine for me.

Sunday roasts were being served. They looked very tempting. Service was quick and we found this place fairly reasonable, apart from the lack of ales.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Royal Sovereign

Interesting-looking pub beside a sloping road which looks like it should have a split-level interior but which actually doesn't (although steps are required to enter). The bulk of the premises is housed in a three-storey building but the much lower side building has the name inscribed in the stonework above. The interior now comprises two seating / dining areas around an island bar with more of a lounge off to one side. There is also a patio beer garden at the back and a few wooden benches out front on the pavement. On the beer front, I found two from Sharp's - Doom Bar and Atlantic (with a reversed Sea Fury clip on another pull) - and the 360° Blood Orange IPA (£4.65), with Old Rosie cider on the fourth operational handpump.

Down busy Preston Street,this street corner pub has an impressive entrance but looks like two buildings knocked together and that would probably account for the split level layout.The island bar serves the various sections,but the fixtures and fittings are from a recent refurb and few original features remain.A coal affect gas fire is another sign of a win for ease of upkeep over tradition.The four handpumps were dispensing Sharps Doom Bar and Atlantic (yawn) and two from the more local Holler Boys Great Mode and Fog Cutter ,clear but too malty for my taste.Better real ale would have added a mark,but there's lots of room inside and it felt quite laid back.
