Wonderful historic pub, bursting with character. Lovely rooms, lovely food, good service. Convenient location in Grantham town centre with easy onsite parking. I will be back and this place is highly recommended.

Had a lovely time over the New year here. The staff were attentive and professional, some of my party had dietary requirements and they were well taken care of. The room was excellent. I look forward to coming back here in the future.

Comfortable and helpful staff. But oh dear, one or two problems. The room was very adequate but a largish toenail clipping was on the bathroom floor. My evening meal was very poor as the large chunk of belly pork was half almost uncooked solid fat. At breakfast the bacon was like leather. To their credit they deducted to the cost of both our evening meals.

Went for new years day lunch. Service was very slow (over 2 hours for a meal, booked in advance) even though it wasn't that busy. Messed up our orders constantly and nearly served me gluten and I'm celiac which would have caused me internal damage. When food came it looked like veg scraps thrown into one big bowl and the meat was cold and chewy. Several of us were ill following day including myself which we are pretty sure was from the food we ate here. Lovely building shame the rest is seriously failing. Avoid

After a relaxing start in reception area with a Gina and tonic, we went upstairs for lunch. We found our table, there was no one to show us. Then we sat and waited, it took an hour for our starters to arrive and a further half hour for the main course. This was mediocre vegetables not cooked, desert was questionable too. Not once were we asked if everything was ok. Waitresses were polite but looked absolutely fed up and not really interested in the diners. Overall a very disappointing lunch to start the year off. Wine and drinks were extortionate price, Would not repeat this experience. Hotel looks generally tired and tying to be something else,

Superb Christmas Day in the Kings Room. The food was first rate and the staff went out of their way to make the day really festive. Stayed overnight and thoroughly enjoyed Christmas Night in a lovely atmosphere.

My husband and I went out for a Boxing Day walk today to town for a Boxing Day afternoon drink. We headed to our favourite place which we often frequent for respite and tipple after shopping! Upon arrival we were greeted with a note on the door to say that it was only open to those that had purchased a christmas "package" deal !! To say we are disappointed would be an understatemet.... the money I have spent in the A&R over the last 10 years on coffees, lunches, dinners, inpromptu wine o'clocks, to not be able to enjoy a quiet drink in what I "had" considered to be the best 'local' in town because I am not part of the elite christmas package club. I dropped in to the A&R about 10 days ago with my husband for a post christmas shop glass of wine or two - and even asked the lady who served us if we could enjoy a drink in the bar over the festive season if we were not resident who confirmed we could! I am therefore really unhappy about today - you are turning away your "bread and butter" - I had arranged to have a birthday lunch with a friend on 6th Jan but I'll be going to Prezzo instead. Today, husband and I carried on up the High St and went to Weatherspoons, pleasantly surprised to be honest - service great, welcoming and Pinot Grigio half the A&R price; no brainer for the future

Beautiful period building affording excellent accomodation food and drink. Breakfasts range from light continental to full english. rooms are spacious and clean. Although right in the middle of Grantham it is a very quiet hotel affording a good night's sleep. A small intimate bar stocks a good range of gins, imperative after a day at work.

I have already completed a positive review of the Angel & Royal on TripAdvisor, but once again my business trip to Grantham was enhanced by a totally satisfying stay at this historical hotel. Staff are always helpful, and room standards are typically excellent.

the hotel is really nice the rooms were old style but quaint and very well laid out and very clean the staff are all very friendly and helpful for me the hotel was ideally situated and the gated car park at the rear was very convenient
