Thank you, Pam, for your very positive review. We really appreciate you taking the time to give your thoughts on our business. It certainly is a pub with a lot of history and Dermott is still an interesting and entertaining topic of conversation around here....More

The Royal hotel was a great break on a drive 1.5 hours out of Melbourne. Great friendly atmosphere of a country pub. Food was really good, we enjoyed the chicken souvlaki, very tasty. The Staff were warm and friendly.
