    Good food, good wine, great location. Had a fun night with friends. Good to see they take covid precautions seriously, and that patrons mostly do as well.

    Been here many times and as always, excellent setting, atmosphere, service, and delicious food. Fantastic place for a group of friends as there are many sections which can be just yours, depending on the number of people. Will be back again soon.

    Always a pleasure to dine on the balcony at The Royal. Introduced first timers last night & they were very impressed & no doubt will adopt as their own. Food was excellent last night. Really would like to see a return to full table service though - it’s the only blight.

    Always a far more elevated version of the typical gourmet pub food, the Royal has been and continues to be a good local for us. Friendly staff and a menu that gets updated with the seasons. Great lunch with family. Everyone was happy with their meal.

    A neighbourhood gem, though the food can be a bit hit & miss. I’d like to see a return of full table service- I would think getting patrons & up from tables to order food is no more COVIDSafe than table service. Please bring it back!

    What a gorgeous pub! Beautifully designed with the dining room upstairs having several different rooms, all of them lovely. Great private dining rooms for larger groups of people, or lovely tables outside on the balcony for smaller groups. Service was great, the food was even better.

    Upgraded our table when a balcony table was requested. Great table service, including a visit from a cocktail trolley! Steaks cooked well. Professional staff.

    important - parking reasonably available, excellent upstairs balcony dining environment, good variety on menu, value pricing, recommend the brewed ginger beer!

    Great food & service. Sat on the verandah on a balmy night - only comment is that the aeroplanes above can be a bit noisy. Highly recommended

    Was really good night - was great the server told us about the specials. Food was good and good variety of options. They have a nice wine list, get a seat on the balcony.

    menu has changed and the food last night was so good in comparison to my last visit where I was disappointed. Could you please bring back your sweet potato fries.

    Great service and huge portion sizes. They even let us split our bill even though we were a big party!

    It was a nice touch giving dad a complimentary father’s day beer and the kids some colouring in to do... would have been better for the gap between kids meals and adults meals to be closer as by the time our meals came out the kids had finished theirs a while ago.
