Had no idea where to eat and asked in the bank where to go locally! Directed to the Royal and had a very pleasant visit with delicious food. I would recommend it as would a few of the locals!

Garlic bread was absolutely delicious. Duck and plum spring rolls were not cooked properly. I didn't complain and just ate them. Three small spring rolls cut in half for $13.50 is not value for money. My husband had the chicken parmigiana and he quite enjoyed it. Was a bit of a drama to order it but we got there in... More

Two of us ordered Nachos and when it arrived the mince was dry and only just warm. I asked the waitress what happened to the Guacamole and she said they have not had any for the last 3 deliveries. I said it would have been good to know this when we ordered as we probably would have ordered something else.... More

Have been to this restaurant quite a few times over the past 3 years- my daughter goes to Uni nearby. Its an ALH venue - one of Australia's largest pub chains, and like most of them offers a good range of better quality pub food. The advantage of this one is that being in a small town lower overheads mean... More

The food was awful with an incredibly rude staff I would never come back here as it was also really over priced and veggies were raw and steak was burnt when asked for rare staff refused to do anything about the poor standard of food and said "we can't help that "

Dinner here last night was quite reasonable value for what was presented. The Tasmanian oysters Kilpatrick were very tasty and the catch of the day, Atlantic salmon was good but lacked the salsa that was supposed to come with it and the eye fillet was a little on the tough side. Overall the "pub meal" was reasonable value.

I recently visited with my family mid November for a get together. I don't think I've ever experienced such poor service from a small country pub. The waitress was rude all 3 times. We waited well over half an hour to be served (there were only 2 other families in the pub at the time), we waited for a very... More
