Not so long ago, the Royal Hill was quaint, having a delightful unspoilt servery, snug and an old fashioned parlour. This has now changed in that, although the servery and snug remain, it has been extended into the adjoining outbuildings and an extension added. There's an increased emphasis on food and most of its six or maybe seven rooms are now used for dining. That said, it's still an attractive pub and has a faithful following of drinkers in addition to the many diners. Its location by the River Severn makes its popularity easy to understand. There are tables and chairs on the bank, but in recent times an attractive viewing hut has been added. It's possible therefore to take in the views of the river, the Breidden Hills and even Rodney's Pillar. And a poignant touch is the bench in the front of the pub which is in memory of Ruby, the landlady who used to reign supreme here. Camping is possible at the back of the pub's grounds and caravans are admitted also.
