Food was ok, nothing worth raving about and not really worth complaining about. If you can't be bothered cooking and aren't looking to be blown away then this is the right place for dinner. Prices are on the steep side so it can be expensive if feeding a family.
Service was reasonable, wait staff were great, bar maid might of been having an off night.

Incredible atmosphere and helpful friendly staff. Service was faultless. Our meals were sensational especially the soft shell crab and beef cheeks. Cooked to perfection. This is now our go to country homely pub.

Came here for my Partners Birthday dinner with his older kids on Saturday night, the 11th of May. Previous visits have been pleasant, meals decent, this meal for us, wasnt. our meals were awful and repeated on us for the rest of the night! We DONT recommend the Satay Beef Stir Fry!
The beef was NOT cut correctly, it was tough and over cooked, the dish was also FULL and overpowered with chilli and the singapore noodles were mooshy.
Luckily the kids had a share platter and they enjoyed their meal.
Overall a disappointing meal from a previously decent predictable hotel meal.

Made a booking for Mother's day lunch, arrived on time & noticed Mother's day menu on our table $60 for 2 courses. Approached staff who politely told us that the general menu was not available. This was not mentioned at time of booking, which should have been communicated to us. Rang another venue in Drouin (Middell's) who were able to fit us in at very short notice. Sadly, we walked out & didn't get to experience the Royal.

Out of 4 meals that we ordered only 2 were good.
Mine and my friends were very dissapointing and we did not enjoy them at all.
My friends fish was overcooked and dry and my "grilled chicken" obviously wasn't grilled nor did it taste like grilled chicken.
To bad because we really liked the ambience of this place!!

Spent 3 days here for work, the rooms are very clean and with new bathrooms and furniture and the food downstairs ??'? was absolutely perfect. We tried all the entrees and many of the main meals and loved everything. Friendly staff too.

Visited the Royal Hotel for Father's Day with my family and couldn't have had a better meal or experience.

The venue is clean and welcoming and the staff couldn't be more helpful.

We ordered the following;

Entree
Pork Belly Pieces = 10/10 - super tasty and the jalapenos added to the coleslaw gave an amazing yet subtle hit of heat.

Garlic Breads = 10/10

Mains
Fish & Chips = 10/10 - well cooked with light and crunchy batter

Pumpkin Lasagna = 10/10 - surprisingly light and with great flavours

Porterhouse med/rare = 9/10 - really moist & tender. Probably cooked a little on the rare side but we'd rather it slightly undercooked than overcooked.

Tennessee Parma = 7/10 - Flavours were good and BBQ sauce really good however was a bit overcooked so schnitzel was dry & crunchy as was cheese on top.

Royal Burger = 12/10 - The star of the show. How can they get so much flavour into a beef pattie is amazing - the most memorable burger we have had in a long time and worth the visit just for this. The burger is served around med for those who aren't used to any pink in their meat but don't let that put you off!

Fair to say I'll be back next time I am near Drouin.

Room is rather modern, good heating during winter, bathroom is very clean.

Downside: the car passing noise is quite loud and affects sleep quality. Double bed is comfortable but frame is creaky and quite small (even for 2 slim adults).

Food still a great standard, but service has seriously gone downhill. When booking, I advised we had a group with various dietary requirements and was assured no problem, plenty of options. Not a single vegan meal on the menu, no vegetarian kids option (other than a bowl of veggies), so was forced to buy a 9 year old an adult vego pasta for $25. Vegan got a bowl of veg. After being delivered multiple meals we didn't order, finally all served and food was nice. Wanted to order dessert at 808pm... nope, kitchen is closed. Probably won't bother going back. Such a shame, it's my local.

The food was good, the service was good. Had a little delay in trying to make the booking but was okay. We booked the function room for a meeting not an event. It was fine, but it's designed for events. It would be a great place to have a party.

Lovely old style hotel. It has been renovated in the past and has kept its old style charm. I have been there a few times now and really enjoy the place. The food is nice with a pretty good menu and the beer was cold. It is my favourite hotel in Drouin.

Nice atmosphere. Good food. Friendly staff. Only problem the stairs in the White room are unguarded and was a major risk to our two year old faster than me grandson

Great food and lovely service . The food was of a high standard. We had the duck curry and the porterhouse; both were of a high standard. The staff were lovely and friendly. We would definitely visit again.

Took my family out for dinner (x3 kids x2 adults), spent around about $250 . First time dinning at this venue. Was quite disappointed, $40 rib eye was cold and a burnt burger meat pattie on my daughters burger... My wife ordered a duck curry, which had no visible duck, we complained about the duck curry dish.. was it a vegetarian duck curry ?
2 waitresses went to the kitchen to report the dish to the chef, ...after consultation with the chef the 2 waitresses walked out of the kitchen and passed our table.. no consult back to the customer or acknowledge of our complaint...
Looks like my $250 will be better spent at another establishment.
Thanks for ... well enough said!

Lovely pub and very friendly staff. Wine & food prices are good, with a wide selection of choice. My meal, battered gummy shark was delicious - a huge serve, which next time I could easily share with my partner but our 8 and 5 yr old were disappointed there were only 4 nuggets each in the kids meal. ?

Just over the railway line, off the Princess Highway in Drouin it's easy to get to and has great parking. The staff are friendly but not "in your face". I went with a group and no one had a bad word to say about their meal. We mostly had the seniors meals, at $18 they were very good value. For those who couldn't eat it all there were take away containers, no problem. We look forward to going again.

Great service and quality meals, keeping in mind that I visited for a work lunch and dining room was quiet.

Was very busy, service was exceptional considering all tables were full. Food was so good that I left a msg for the chef. Prices very reasonable with both beverages and food. Looking forward to the next visit. Great atmosphere.
