The Royal has received recognition from CAMRA for its support of locally brewed real ale. The bar has three hand pumps and serves a changing selection of real ale, usually sourced from Cumbrian breweries. In addition, the bar stocks a wide selection of draught and bottled beers, lagers and ciders. There’s a limited choice of wine that covers most of the basics, and the pub has a good choice of spirits, including a small collection of gins.

Food service at the Royal is limited to 5.30pm to 8pm Mondays to Thursdays, and noon until 4pm at weekends. The menu is limited to a selection of pub classics, such as scampi, lasagne, sausage, and burgers. On Thursday nights, there is a curry night, usually with a choice of curry dishes served with rice and naan breads.
