    I have been going to The Royal for years. It's a nice place with old-fashioned good food and service. The staff are always pleasant and the ambiance is warm and friendly. Highly recommended !!

    The Royal has always been a family favourite for us. The atmosphere is beautiful, the service is alway excellent and the food is fantastic. Probably a little expensive for the serving sizes but the flavours are amazing.

    We live locally and this hotel has been a favourite. It has experienced changes in management and style, not all positive, but now we like it again. Stylish decor, small but excellent menu and one of Mornington’s best example of 19th century architectural grandeur.

    Had to order from the bar, rather than full waiter/waitress service and the kitchen is only open until 8.30pm, but otherwise food was fantastic and the views from the veranda are beautiful, especially at sun set.

    We have dined at the Royal often and always enjoyed it....staff are great ???? and food is delicious. There are a variety of dining options.....formal or casual, indoors or outside. We had lunch in the main dining room then coffee and dessert in front of the open fire at the Bar .....perfect!

    The Royal’s size and quality of their meals have gone downhill. Won’t be returning which is unfortunate because it used to be one of my favourite spots in Mornington

    Good food, reasonable drink selection, appropriate round table for large group, service was fine but far too noisy. With 8 at our table it was hard to talk over the loud background music

    The food is always good at the Royal. A dependable favourite. Quick service, maybe too quick sometimes but always excellent food. Staff are always friendly.

    This place doesn’t have table service ...guests need to go to the bar to make order. Very small dish for 34 dollars, very casual, not cheap, only good for parma lovers and beer .. we come usually to this place in summer to get a glass of wine , sit outside, enjoy beautiful view. Can be extremely noisy in summer, particularly on weekends.not best for food.

    You order and pay at the bar and the menu offers a good range of choices without being too many. All the meals were good with generous portions ranging from the fish and chips to the curry to the grilled salmon. Any pub that can do a good curry is great sign that those in the kitchen know what they are doing.

    Very nice, but thought there could be a few more main selections for my 90 year old mother, there was really only the fish and chips that she could think of having. A little upmarket for the older person who may like a roast or something simpler.
