My friend and I were travelling near Oberon early last week & decided, as we had been driving all day to stop over & call it a night.
As we entered the royal pub we noticed the surrounding open wood fires blazing with warmth as (it was extremely cold) we were greeted with a friendly welcome from the bar staff. We enquired abt accommodation and the publican who helped us Scott) was more than accommodating. After lugging our bags in & checking in Scott guided us through to the dining room handed over menus and directed where to place our orders. Scott had also mentioned us of a new head chef who had only just arrived that day so we were eager to trial the food. After a long day travelling we were particularly hungry. The menu had good variety and a also fairly cheap. We both ordered T-Bone medium rare and Medium I order with veg and mash and my friend had salad and chips. I was not expecting anything special being a pub but what a surprise. The T-Bone was cooked to perfection & so tender which is far better than most sydney pubs &restaurants these days& half the price. Great job to the chef and thanks for making us feel welcome Scott we may visit in the slightly warmer months next time. Ha ha

Being a near by local I have been driving passed this pub for years.
Every element was lost, poor food, lacked entertainment and rude staff.
Recently noticed some changes so I decided to bring my along my family for dinner.
We all could not have been more pleased with every aspect of our terrific experience.
The warm welcome, the easy varying menu selections and the extremely pleasant environment made it very special time for us all.
The staff were great and informed us of new ownership and I must say they have made an incredible turn around all ready.
We are already planning our next visit there,

Decor is really old and cheerless. Had to go looking for the person to take our meal orders. When she finally arrived (middle of the lunch service) she was abrupt and rude. Finally got our meal which was dry and unappealing and severely overpriced. Won't be coming back

Don't be put off when you call to make a booking or by your first impressions as you walk in. For a country pub the meals were good value and quite nice. Staff were friendly and even served us dessert after the kitchen had closed.

It wasn't the best food I've ever had - but adequate. The dining area was pleasant but not stylish. We liked the "bush" décor, though. The fire was lovely and made the room warm and very comfortable. Very "pub" fare. The people made us feel very welcome.
