The Return Of The Royal Hotel: Everything You Need To Know

The return of The Royal Hotel, Perth’s newest oldest pub.

Built in 1882 on the corner of William and Wellington Streets, The Royal Hotel was the original heart and soul of Perth. John Parker, the man behind applauded Northbridge bar, The Standard, is bringing the heritage-listed building back to life.

The iconic The Royal will be a great Australian pub once again – this time with an emphasis on quality food and an elevated pub experience.

Following an extensive $13 million dollar joint renovation with Charter Hall, the Royal Hotel is now open.

“Back in her heyday, The Royal was a hive of mixed activity – she was the true epicentre and melting pot of Perth, and just a great Australian pub.

The Royal is a heritage-listed 140-year old grand dame with great bones and incredible Perth-centric history. I’m very excited to be returning her to modern day Perth. I’ve been running bars for 25 years now and both my father and grandfather were publicans, so I really feel like pubs are well and truly well in my blood,” says Parker.
