We stopped here on the way to Tamworth and our second time here. Service was the best part of this experience. Friendly and fasts. We had the scotch fillet & flat bread. They were ok but nothing special. We sat inside near a window but decided to move when we saw dead flies. It was lovely... read more

Excellent food and service, great surrounds and very popular. That's because everyone who travels through Walcha regularly knows the quality is fantastic! Meals and morning/afternoon teas are cooked on the day with magnificent home cooked cakes etc. and are country generous. You can eat inside or outside.

Stopped here for coffee on our motorbike safari between Sydney and Warwick, QLD. Fun and quirky shop with lots of interesting memorabilia on the walls. Enjoyed a really good vegetarian breakfast and an equally welcome flat white. Although we did not make use of the 'Drying Room' as is stated on the back of their business card, I would imagine...

Had coffees here with family on a trip into Walcha. The coffee itself was quite good, although it took a little longer than normal for service and the coffee was served in paper cups, despite sitting in. It was quite a mild summer day (only about 14 degrees) so the lack of indoor seating was a bit of a challenge.... More

popped in on a run through from Port Macquarie, very hungry and gagging for coffee. Was not expecting this lovely character filled place, it is like a museum of car racing helmets, engine parts and all sorts of old advertising signs. Service was very friendly and coffee was excellent. enjoyed cappuccinos with a toasted ham and cheese sandwich sitting on... More

The Royal has always done wonderful breakfasts and lunches but has recently expanded to doing dinner Friday and Saturday nights. The menu is deliberated daily by the chef and written on specials boards as you enter. When we visited we couldn't decide on what to get but we started with bruschetta and lemon chili squid; which were both to die... More

AT the end of beginning of the famous Oxley Hwy; this café is a great place to stop for a drink, food or just to relax. We unfortunately spent many hours on one day here (unfortunate because we had riding plans but one of the bikes broke down) but sitting under the tree outside, eating and drinking, there are far...
