the beer lovers Gastropub
Welcome to the Royston Hotel.
The Royston was the first Melbourne pub to feature predominantly microbrewery beers. And while we now have a few imitators, the Royston maintains its reputation as the pre-eminent microbrewery pub. With a constantly rotating selection of 10 micros on tap plus another on the traditional hand-pump tap, we aim for quality, not quantity. Served by staff who know and love the beer they sell, in an atmosphere conducive to savouring the amber, you won't find a better quality beer experience in Melbourne.
But we can't just talk about the beer. The Royston's food reputation continues to grow, and we've had to embrace that strange word "gastropub". Again, there's a few pubs in town scrambling for the title, and mostly they come with a figurehead celebrity chef and prices to match. Meanwhile our unassuming kitchen team, led by our Head Chef, Rob Clark, continues to win rave reviews. Rob is no figurehead - he's in the kitchen day-in day-out, pumping out the amazing menu that is available in both the front bar and the dining room.
And there's no pretensions. We pride ourselves on providing a venue that makes you feel at home the moment you walk in. From our friendly front bar to our cosy restaurant. From our amazing selection of beers on tap to our pool room.
So bring some friends down for a bite or drink.
In the meantime, come on in and lets see how
much we can make you feel right at home...
