We visited the Royal for a Sunday lunch. The service was fantastic, catering very well to special dietary requirements and the food was delicious and thoroughly enjoyed by all of us.

My wife & I both ordered Medium rare eye fillet steaks. My wife's came out burnt on the outside & certainly not medium rare inside. When we complained the staff, the staff member said to my wife "Well what do you want me to do...about it" Eventually she asked if my wife would like a new meal which she agreed to. No apology at all, Th staff member came back & tried to explain that there are different cuts of meat & that they had pulled apart the steak. Still no apology. Meantime at the table immediately behind us the woman there had asked for a steak medium to well done. When she received the steak it apparently was quite bloody & again the staff tried to make an excuse without an apology. My steak was certainly medium rare at one end but quite tough & probably medium at the other end.. My recommendation is that if you want a really good steak in Echuca, go to the AmericanMore

Highly recommend 1895 the Royal. The service upstairs in the steakhouse was amazing, friendly staff and meals and drinks brought out quickly even as busy as it was. We all had the hot rocks and loved the steaks! Great atmosphere downstairs in the bar and...dining area. Barry and Brandon, we will be back!More

We booked dinner here as we found Echuca to be very busy during our 2 day stay. The staff were lovely and I love they checked we were double vaxed and they were all wearing masks. We ordered the rack of lamb and the barramundi,...both with mash and veg. We enjoyed our meals very tasty and perfect serving sizes. The wine list was good. Very nice pub for a meal.More

Rocked up without a booking to Escape major rain while staying in town. Arrived behind others, covid check in process observed correctly, guests seem to be seated across venue with good distance between them. Given menu and told to come to bar when ordering drinks...and meal. Perused me nu and was a little disappointed that many of the items my partner had seen on a menu outside (earlier that day were not actually on the menu we were given. We both opted for rack of lamb and were happy with the choice. It seemed like another couple regretted not ordering this as they left as the husband made comment to his wife about that being the rack of lamb and she commented that they had debated ordering it but didn’t. Presentation was good none of those frozen veg or Veg that were cooked hours before and held in aBain Marie waiting to be dished out. That said i was wondering where our meals had got to by the time they came out. Noting the table next to us had ordered while we were there (just before us) but seemed to be 3/4s of the way through their meal. The only other criticism was that several staff were not wearing masks correctly, yes they had them on but not fully covering both mouth and nose. Given their adherence to checking patrons were double vax’d was surprising. My standard question I always ask in a review, would I eat here again? YES the standard of the food, was great and sure it was a little slow but id sooner wait for good food than to receive bad food in a rush.More

We went to the Royal Hotel for dinner while staying in Echuca. My husband had the seafood Parma and I ordered gluten free pasta. Wish I could say the meals were good. Sadly they were terrible. Pasta was like mush. The Parma wasn’t cooked properly...and cold stale chips. Worst meal out we have ever eaten. One star is too much. won’t be going back there.More

Great pub food and very reasonably priced. I ordered the scotch fillet steak with pepper sauce and it was cooked exactly how I ordered it. Really peppery sauce too. My partner ordered one of their parkas and looked it. Will definitely come back.
