Dining at the invicta

With a freshly cooked-to-order selection of breakfast and dinner items, Roy’s Restaurant offers you an intimate, personal dining experience in a beautiful setting. Contemporary furniture fuse with period features and sweeping bay windows set the scene for a delicious breakfast or dinner in the heart of Britain’s Ocean City – whatever the occasion.

All orders are taken at your table by our friendly waiting staff. We only ever use the freshest ingredients and always buy local, organic produce where possible. If you’d like to know more about our menu, our world-class chef would be more than happy to chat with you

You may choose from dining in the newly redecorated Roy’s Restaurant serving both our a la carte and lite bites menus or more casually in our bar where the lite bite menu is available. Both are prepared and executed by our Head Chef Michael Deans and his team.
