“Thoroughly enjoyable evening in great atmosphere with friendly service and excellent food.”
Reviewed 12 October 2013 via mobile

We are visiting family from interstate and had heard that this establishment was worth a visit.I was skeptical looking at building from the outside but totally amazed on entering . We found the staff very friendly and efficient.
Table service is provided for food service and drinks need to be ordered and picked up from the bar.I would have preferred them to be delivered but being able to tab them to the table was convenient. I was also impressed at the cost of the drinks.My glass of very acceptable wine only $5.50.
The menu caters for a wide range of tastes. We started with the house bread which was yummy!!My husband was very happy with the 300 g rib eye cooked to perfection( melt in the mouth). My Tasmanian salmon on a pea risotto was absolutely delicious.Our guests had a rump steak and fish fillet( I forget what) but were both very happy.
Desserts sounded tempting but sense prevailed given our full tummies:-)
Well done team!

“A Smile Would be Nice”
Reviewed 20 September 2013

First visited this establishment 4 years ago and it was fantastic. Our recent visit did not live up to expectations. Staff were unfriendly and looked put out when serving. The attire worn by staff is of the 1980s. Short and t shirts in winter just don't cut. The meals are good but overpriced and certainly are not setting the world on fire. If you are looking for a pub meal with no frills this is the place for you.

“What A Great Little Surprise”
Reviewed 19 September 2013

We decided to eat at a lovely restaurant in the beautiful Scenic Rim and much to our dismay found out that it and the beautiful restaurant at Kooroomba Winery, (2nd choice that day), were closed on Monday and Tuesday as were other locations. We did not have much to choose from around Boonah and decided that although we did not want a "pub meal" we had no option but to try the Royal Hotel at beautiful Kalbar.
The gods were on our side...we did not get a pub meal. The meals were beautifully prepared, cooked and presented by the husband and wife team who were the chefs at Kooroomba. This is a lovely drive from Brisbane, especially doing the loop through Beaudesert with a "must" drop in to Wyaralong dam just outside Beaudesert. The restaurant has a lovely verandah with a country aspect far away from the city. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who is interested in a lovely day out with great food and a nice atmosphere. The outside of the hotel looks like any country pub but inside has been renovated and is open and lovely.
