Sydney's Inner West
This Leichhardt favourite is a great venue for a family night out or cocktails with the girls!
This Leichhardt institution contains the dining area - The Royal Botanical - a beautiful garden themed eating a drinking space, the main bar, the sports bar and they also have a private dining room available for functions.
This is a kid friendly venue with have a small but satisfying Tiny Tots menu. They have colouring in activity sheets and pencils and kids are welcome in all parts of the extensive first floor dining areas although on Friday and Saturday nights they try to group families dining together and give those without families an area of their own. It can get busy!
We have been lucky enough to have lunch at The Royal a few times in the last few months and we love the atmosphere of the place. The upstairs area is beautiful and worthy of the name The Royal Botanical! with the botanical theme alive and well!
We love the menu. There's plenty of pub favourites such as burgers, schnitzels, steak and pasta. The Tiny Tots Menu is small but seems to satisfy those sometimes fussy taste buds - it includes Kids Schnitzel ($8), Kids Fish ($8), Kids Pasta ($7.50) and Kids Bangers & Mash ($8).
Our food was delicious! We had the Chicken Schnitzel ($19.50) and the Beef Brisket Burger ($18.50). We followed up with an excellent coffee (that was after the wine of course!).
We love it here, the staff are really friendly, the food is fresh and yummy, the servings a great size and the atmosphere is wonderful! But we feel we've really only scratched the surface! We will be back for another meal soon and will pad out the review with some more examples of the delicious pub food served at the Royal!
