Old Boots left this review about The Royal Children

No frills corner pub, bench seating, wooden chairs and tables, mixed floor treatments. “Salt of the earth” type punters (or scrotes) rather than the zombies mentioned. Screens and constant music from jukebox. Bloody awful beer, they only had Bombardier on the two banks of five but obviously no one drinks it as it was not exactly vinegar but very infected with something nasty, vinegar fly I’d guess. Unsigned one way system in operation, I chose the wrong door to much mirth of staff and punters; the beer gods were obviously trying to tell me something.

ROB Camra left this review about The Royal Children

A single roomed tatty mess. The pool table is the main feature. We were just about to do our Track & Trace stuff when I noticed that all the pumpclips were turned round, so we left it. I think 3 of the "zombie-like creatures" mentioned in Alan's review below were still resident when we called in. Awful.

Much the same as Al's review below - the main difference being that there were no Zombies present. In fact we were the only customers. Still had Bombardier and Castle Rock Harvest Pale. The pale was fine and the service friendly. I would call again but there are bettor options nearby.
