Royal Hotel

Pub in Newtown & the Inner West

Right on the most pleasant stretch of Norton Street, surrounded by Mediterranean restaurants, this handsome old pub has a fairly uninspiring (but late-opening) downstairs bar but a much nicer upstairs. Tasty food, a riot of plants and great balcony seating make it a very comfortable space. Prepare to be deafened at dusk when the lorikeets come home to roost.
