“Great Location, Average Food, Overpriced”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Location, location, location! Working in the area, I've been going to the Royal since it opened and have experienced its offerings through a few different owners. It's really a very nice pub in a stunning location. The food is fine for pub food but it's at top restaurant prices (in fact, I'm sure we paid less for a steak at Fraser's Restaurant in King's Park) and the drinks pricing is also exhorbitant. It's very busy on Friday afternoon's with the lunchtime and after-work crowd so if you're a tourist just bear in mind that if you want an outside table you'd be best to book one rather than just wander in off the street.

“Delighful alfresco salad overlooking the River”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

We stopped here on our bicycle trip around the Perth River. They have a lovely menu to suit all tastes and we opted for a Chicken and Spinach Salad, which was just perfect. The venue is tranquil and picturesque. A lovely spot for lunch in the sun..

“Great location and delicious pizza!”
Reviewed March 25, 2013 via mobile

We are regulars at the Royal. Awesome location and view as it is right on the water. There are 2 options for dinner - the bar menu is good and pizzas are highly recommended. There Is also a fancier A La carte section but have not tried. Breakfast was not the most memorable unfortunately but there are other good options close by. Definitely a top choice for a drink and bite to eat with friends.
