The Royal Hotel blooms with great pub grub and a whole new look
Sydney bars and nosheries are popping up all over with each one vying to be the next ‘in’ spot. But what many of these new shiny ‘emporiums’ cannot provide is the historical geniality of the good ‘ol Aussie pub.
The Royal Hotel at 156 Norton Street Leichhardt, has been serving patrons since 1886 with the current owners, W. Short Hotel Group, in the first stages of a complete revamp right across the entire venue.
Royal Botanical dining, bar and terrace, on the first floor of The Royal Hotel, sprang to life at a party that was, well – a good ‘ol fashioned party with fantastic, hearty and delicious pub grub (Created by new head chef Manish Shrestha) and our choice of drinks from the bar.
The Royal Hotel Botanical dining, bar and terrace was officially and enthusiastically launched by the Mayor of Leichhardt, Darcy Byrne with Marty Short (W. Short Hotel Group) recounting the Short family’s history and the part his dad had played in it. Guests included local business owners, those from the hospitality industry and media including two of Sydney’s most notable social scribes, Amy Cooper and Andrew Hornery.
Botanical dining, bar and terrace seats 45 (150 cocktail style for events) has been completely overhauled in a ‘botanical’ bistro style with wall to wall plants and a charming outdoor terrace displaying vertical gardens with herbs, edible flowers and succulents. This outdoor ‘garden’ contains a stunning plant ‘Queen for a Night’ which the gardens creator, Peter Hatfield, informed MiSociety that it flowers but once a year for one night only – unlike The Royal which is open every night.
