This place was great. Really friendly and sincere service and we left wishing we had stayed at their accommodation as we thought if the service and quality of food was indicative of the accommodation it would have been great. Highly recommend it.

My wife and I stayed here for a weekend away having never expored the Walcha area before, we had lunch and breakfast at the Cafe and found the food very nice and good value for money. There was a nice fire in the dinning area and secure parking out the back. The rooms were comfortable, clean and the bed was... More

This was obviously an old hotel and has been redone as a cafe. The food was great. Staff very friendly. Prices reasonable. All very clean and tidy. They stoked up the fire for us cold Qlders. Great atmosphere. This place is obviously well patronised. Well worth going to.

We stopped and had lunch at the Walcha Royal Cafe. My husband is a motorbike enthusiast and loved the old WWII replica bike out the front as well as the old displays inside. We decided on a plain hamburger which came with some chips for $10. It was really nice especially as we washed it down with a cold beer.... More

I love a hotel with interesting charm, décor, memorabilia, art and furniture- this hotel was absolutely amazing on all accounts. The staff were exceptional and really accommodating for us motorcyclists who rocked up at 5pm. Incredibly generous staff. The rooms are exquisite and the bar fridge/lounge/fireplace/facilities in general were superb. Great food and service at the café, the garden has... More

Over the mountains in NSW Walcha can easily be bypassed. We loved our lunch at the Royal cafe, it's licenced so you can have a glass of wine or beer like a civilised European would, the food was delish lamb cutlets small and fresh perfectly cooked, lasagna for me, homey and beautiful fresh salad. Very reasonable prices and great choice... More

This time the stop was for business, but many stops with the family, perfect spot to un wind after the windy road, coffee is great as is the food. If you need they do have rooms as well. The fire inside for the colder is great and for the warmer days the outside area is beautiful.

We dropped by for afternoon coffee and cake and stumbled upon this fascinating establishment. Indoor seating features quaint motoring reminders of yesteryear. Very popular dining spot for bikers with the walls filled with memorabilia to add atmosphere. Coffee was hot and a nice blend. The orange & almond cake was fresh like it has just come out of the oven.... More

Stopped for a quick lunch on the way through and asked if they had any pies left. We should have asked, have you got any hot pies left. Waited 15 minutes and was given what was originally a nice pie that had been put through a microwave nuclear holocaust. Please tell patrons if you are going to turn nice bakery... More

Beautiful home made fresh scones! Lovely other meals also, eat in or sit outside on the verandah, or under the umbrellas in the shade of the trees. A popular place for bikers (not bikies!) to stop with public toilets in the park next door and memorabilia inside the old hotel which has been converted.
