The Royal has really nailed great pub dining. A warm welcome was followed by terrific food and drinks. The service was fabulous and the setting , a lovely pub verandah was really special. Had a great time and will definately be returning.

We all enjoyed a great dinner. The staff were particularly attentive with the young kids, the colouring stuff was greatly appreciated.

The reinvention of this hotel is fantastic. I love the decor and upstairs the lounge is cosy and the restaurant verandah is such a gem. The menu is extremely varied and our group of 8 all had something different and all enjoyed our dishes. Highly recommend. Great atmosphere!

Food consistently good, attentive service, and the balcony is great on a fine Sydney day

My co-workers and I have used the Royal as a casual after work drinks and dinner venue and it's great for that. It's walking distance from our work and it's not too fancy that we feel we have to worry about looking too nice after a long day at work but it's also not unfancy that we don't want to go there. It's a good balance.
