After waiting over an hour for our meals we approached the wait staff who politely told us the docket was not received in the kitchen and our order had been forgotten. The staff were very nice but forgetting a whole table of meals is unacceptable and put a real dampener on our New Year's Day... The icing on the cake...

Whenever in Pt Elliot we visit The Royal Family. The food is excellent, the service first rate. The added value for this hotel is the live music on Thursday and Friday nights, Thursday night being open mike. We have a 6 year old who loves the beer garden and childrens area.

We ate here 3 or 4 times on our stay in Port Elliot. Staff were welcoming bubbly and service was top notch. Food traditional pub fare but not salted and good lunch specials. The standout was the meatballs better than any met in italian restaurants and huge serve.

I reckon this Hotel is underrated. Sure it's a little old looking and the menu is rather traditional pub grub but they do it well. Great happy and welcoming staff who make you feel at home. The food is good value and the special nights may it exceptional value. This pub is not trying to be trendy just honest meals...
