It was nice to come for a much needed pub meal, my friend and I both had parmis which were yummy. The lady behind the bar was really lovely. My friend and I live in Balarat and Geelong so the pub is a good option...for us to meet half way.More

We often hit the road and try different hotels away from our town. Good old country folk, down to earth that make you feel welcome. Always have had a good meal here. Large menu so something for everyone.

Cracking old-school corner pub. Sports telly, wrap-around bar, pool table, TAB and friendly-like-family bar staff. Terrific venue for a beverage, pit stop or sports catch up.

wife and I stopped into the Royal Hotel for dinner on the way home from Inveigh, we ordered our meals and when they came out wow,given its a country pub they did exceptionally well the food was out in a timely manner and so tasty...just like home cooked . Its exactly what Id expect form a country pub,no fancy over the top trimming to make it look good just heaps of flavour.. Staff are very friendly and obliging.More

Absolutely terrible service. The manager is a total clown and is totally inappropriate in the hospitality industry. The food was good but spoilt by a loud mouth, obnoxious, buffoon of a publican. There is a hotel nearby where the food is just as good and...you do not have to put up with an obnoxious loudmouth intent o n ruining your night. I would highly recommend you avoid this hotel.More

We visited from queensland for a meal. The meal was of the highest quality but the service we were given by the bar manager surpassed all expectations. Thank you so much for the freeby merchandise we requested to buy. You don’t get better than that...anywhere in Australia.More

This pub is on the way to Geelong or to Ballarat, it is right on the Midland Highway so you can't miss it. The owners are fantastic people and the staff are very welcoming and friendly, they have great meals and the portions are on...the large side. The alcohol prices are on par with everyone else. They have entertainment here every couple of months , must see. Would recommend.More
