5 reviews of Royal Standard in English
A good pub to watch football in a comfortable style with OK food. it can get busy on big match days so get there early for a seat. Has Real Ale as well and always been friendly when I have visited.

The Royal Standard is the only bar in the small village of Stratheden Parade, Blackheath. It’s nto a bad bar, with a good range of drinks and a decent bar menu.
It’s very much a locals pub, but they’re a friendly lot if you make an effort to talk to them. There are a couple of pool tables if you fancy a game, and they have sports on if you’re a football fan.
The Royal Standard, located in the general Blackheath area (not the village itself), is a fairly quiet pub serving a decent selection of alcoholic beverages, hot drinks and food.
The decor is a bit quirky: a random brass statue stands in one corner, cool modern art is framed in antiquated gold-painted frames (making the handful of plasma screens seem out of synch), while the lamps (including a few metallic chandeliers) and wallpaper remind you of a hotel lobby. The pub thus feels neither particularly cosy nor traditional. But this doesn't detract from its functionality!
There's a decent selection of food on the menu, nothing out-of-this-world. Just be careful what you order: a portion of onion rings turned out to have only six measly onions, while a portion of chips with garlic mayonnaise was enough to share between two people. It's a bit hit or miss it seems, and beware: the kitchen closes at 9.
Nevertheless, they've got a varied selection of wine, beer, cider, ale and spirits, and very reasonably priced coffees (including lattes and cappucinos). The servers are friendly and approachable.
All in all, a quiet pub where you can sit and converse. They play interesting music (funk, soul) instead of grating "party hits" and hold a fun quiz on Sunday evenings at 9 pm.
