THE ROYAL STANDARD
A JOURNEY THROUGH TIME!
The Royal Standard is a traditional pub located in the charming village of Upwey on the outskirts of Weymouth, Dorset. The small, friendly atmosphere is a favourite with locals and new customers alike. It is renowned for serving a selection of real ales and is recognised in the CAMRA Good Pub Guide.
With a long and distinguished history in the village, the pub has been actively researched by the Landlord who is keen to discover the heritage that make the Royal Standard so special. Researching the history of the pub both as a pub and the building itself has compiled some fascinating insights. Check back soon as we hope to have some of this history here in the near future. In the meantime you will find some old images of the building and former landlords and landladies below.
Don't just take our word for it. Read what some of our customers have to say...
We were in the area visiting friends and came to this pub for Sunday lunch. It was amazing!! Two of us had the roast pork, with all the trimmings and two had the roast beef. The meals came on huge plates and the veg was fresh, unlike a carvery!! Great atmosphere and friendly staff and locals. Would definitely recommend this pub.
Seafood night WOW
Me and my partner have visited this place before & decided to return for the seafood night we saw advertised, we decided to go for the sharing platter, which included a whole brown crab, half a lobster, oysters & some incredible pate made with crayfish & lobster tails, I'm gluten free and made the owner aware of this, he made sure we was well looked after and even got us gluten free bread, all that food for £30 which was great value for money, might even try the steak night next, thanks for a great night!
Came in for Sunday Roast with my mum for her birthday, the staff were friendly and helpful and the food was excellent! There is a great choice of 4 different ales 2 ciders and your usual lagers, also an exceptional range of gins
Amazing Sunday roast
Quite possibly one of the best (and biggest!) Sunday roasts I've ever eaten and excellent value for money. Lovely little village pub with a great atmosphere. Also, if you're a gin fan, check out the new gin menu!
Brilliant Steak Night!
Attended the new Steak Night held here on Monday nights at the pub.
I must say the food and service were of top quality. Staff were extremely friendly and made us feel welcome throughout. The food is of extremely good quality and my Steak was melt in the mouth.
If you are a lover of great food and a quality dining service, this is the place to go!
