Comfortable bistro away from the pokies, with ambiance, a good salad and vege bar, and food at reasonable prices (including $10 snitties). Bar prices are relatively low.

Mid week lunch with the boys. Sat in beer garden, drinks and food orders from Sports Bar counter. Very few people around. Beer very cheap, food menu average pub food. The meal was ok, salad and veg bar very average. Service pleasant. Visit alright for a budget meal with cheap drinks.

The Hotel appears tired and apparently is headind for a large make over. The dinner menu lacks imagination and was mirrored by the meals presented to us. The staff were friendly and welcoming. Wheel chair Friendly 3/5 Large car park but only 2 dedicated disability parks. (Both taken). Signed toilet. Clean and spacious. Easy access to Hotel and toilet. Good... More

The food is amazing and staff very friendly. The menu has a great range of choices to cover for all tastes. A nice vegie and salad bar and lovely warm rolls. Close to town for after events.

Good family restaurant with delicious Schnitzels and salad bar. The 2 Schnitzel challenge is not too difficult and you could get a free drink from it. Nice furnishings and off-street parking is easy to get to.

We have tried The Royal for a meal twice in the past week. once as a couple and once as a group of 6. We used the "split the bill" voucher that gives a 50% discount off the main meal. This made the prices very reasonable when a main is $25 to $30 normally. Ordering was painfully slow with only... More

Good atmosphere with great affordable Sunday buffet and cheap happy hour prices. The beer garden is OK too. Pity about the poker machines though.

I still remember a time when the university students used to flock to this place on a weekend. It was literally party central. However it seems as if it is no longer the case because it seems to be much quieter now. They do have a really nice beer garden, but other than that it is just a basic pub... More

Attended for lunch on Mother's Day. The hotel has been in its present location for almost 100 years. The interior is okay and service okay, however there appeared to be only two female staff doing the serving of food and the serving of liquor at the bar. Waiting time for quite a few patrons. The food is general pub grub... More
