Another place we always eat at when staying in Portscatho. Also handy for a lunchtime pint after a good morning's walk. There is often live music of some kind in the evening. This time it was sea shanty. The food is very good here and we enjoyed wild venison, which is an unusual item. Stronger flavour than farmed and very... More

Do not go here. Do not eat here. We camped nearby. When we first arrived we thought we would try this place as it was nearby. We walked in and went to sit down, only to be told that we couldn't sit in that part of the pub. We managed to squeeze into a table attached to another family. It... More

Have visited here every year for the last 40+ so seen lots of change, however one thing has remained, it's a proper local with a great welcome. Good choice of ale (or so I am told) and never been disappointed with the food - it's not posh grub but it is what it is and local produce is used.

Looking for somewhere to have an evening meal by chance we came across the Royal Standard. It seemed quite deserted but we decided to give it a try. Glad we did, Great welcome and great food. What is unusual about this pub is that it has no TV and no gaming machines, just good 'old fashioned service, beer and food... More

Nice selection of local beers. Just don't order any food. Lumpy mash, watery fish, gristly sausages...so bad. But pleasant staff and good beer.

We were camping nearby and had a meal here the first night. Food was good locally sourced pub food. They do half portions of adult menu for children-which was great for our daughter. Pub was friendly and busy with both locals and tourists. There were locals singing sea shanties which was lovely.
