Really liked the decor of the pub, especially the real fire! Arrived there at 5pm but couldn't get food until 6pm! When it finally arrived the pie that I was given was microwaved and the meat was tough! Very disappointing!

A brand new face lift, clean inviting and warm. Had lunch with family on 30th June 2013. was very happy that the menu was good and the food was wonderful. 5 different meals came out and everyone loved their food. The fire was going and everything was pristine and clean. Will definitely return and let all my friends know that the royal is a lovely place to go to again !

We booked this restaurant at the last minute and there was a group of 7. We ordered between us the Barramundi, Fillet steaks and crumbed Flathead Fillets. When we received the food it was equal to above the standard you would expect in very expensive reastaurants. We were all surprised at the quality and presentation.
The waitress was very friendly and the service was excellent. We did see the previous reviews and were a bit dubious but will visit this restaurant again when in Bowral. Highly recommended.

The dining area is newly renovated and the food is exceptional. Casual, but not pub type food. The staff were extremely attentive and I would highly recommend this restaurant to readers.

On first impressions, the hotel restaurant is nicely decorated, clean and stylish, with a real fire adding to the charm.Unfortunately the food did not live up to expectations. We waited for over 35 minutes for our food, although we were the only restaurant diners - the kitchen staff were obviously concentrating on the counter teas for the pub. My pasta was undercooked and bland, my dining companion's chicken was overcooked and the portions were meagre. Added to that, my companion found a hair in his dinner. Cannot recommend this...there are far better dining experiences in Bowral than the Royal, will not be going back, ever.
