Pub of the Week: Tony Leonard (3AW) reviews the Royal Hotel in Bacchus Marsh

In the space of 3-4 years after a serious re-fit, the Royal in Bacchus Marsh has settled into a constant rhythm to be providing a better level of food and drink in the area, and truly becoming a locals’ local.

From the outside it invites with a deep brown colour over brick, small raised platform at front separate from footpath to claim its own area with deftly placed partitioning; inside to a large public bar, atrium, beer garden and old world, high ceiling, dining room.

The Royals’ menus set themselves a bit higher than your standard pub grub, but ensuring if it’s simple we can do it, if you a bit more flair then it’s no problem either.

Indeed since the major reno, the style has been pared back a little and that’s fine. What it has established is a proper community that has an all-age appeal, due largely to the excellent publican.

TAB yes; Pokies No.

There are 4 distinct areas to dine, but a separate menu if you wish to go to the all service, delightful dining room that will look after your needs.

The Royal ticks over nicely.
