Sydney’s Royal Oak Hotel has been at their Bay Street location in Double Bay for more than a century, which is pretty impressive by Australian standards. They’ve recently refurbished the pub and bistro restaurant, and now they offer a menu, sports on TV and a bar stocked with the best drinks that the Eastern Suburbs have to offer. Book yourself a table now for a top notch feed.
The Aussie public loves a battler, and to get through a hundred years on the same spot in the ever-changing city of Sydney, you need a large amount of grit and determination. So The Royal Oak – which has stood on the corner of Bay Street and Cooper Street in Double Bay in the Eastern Suburbs for over a century – is a proper stalwart of the Eastern Suburbs restaurant and drinking scene, and after their recent refurb, they are continuing the tradition of a great Australian menu, a fully-stocked bar, and a friendly atmosphere.
You can reach The Royal Oak Hotel along Bay Street – the other end of the street is Double Bay Wharf, if you’re in the nautical mood, or via Edgecliff train station – and when you get there, you’re going to want to try their Australian classics menu. Chicken schnitzel, chicken parmigiana, battered barramundi and Wagyu beef burgers are all there, as are pizzas and salads, chargrilled steaks and a few Asian-style dishes as well. Make your way to Double Bay in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney for a feed that has stood the test of time.
Helpful staff who found extra chairs when our group expanded from 9 to 14. Easy booking process online and follow up confirmation. Food quick. Fun night
After an initial mix up with our table they continually made up for it the rest of the evening with the most amazing service. Share plates were delicious especially the dumplings and dim sum.

Very nice dinner - food was good and the service friendly and the hotel had a good vibe without being overly loud. Really pleasant environment for a good local dinner and catch up with friends
Food was great, place was lively and staff were attentive, cocktails. Good wine list comfortable. Parking was easy and sports was on the TV for those interested
Thanks, great venue to catch up with old friends. Had the burger, great value at $15, delicious and enjoyed the large selection of beers on tap
Great food good value bar service a bit slack. Burger was a real highlight well cooked and great fries. Wine choices were also good thanks
Relaxedness atmosphere with great food. Kids are made to feel welcome as meals come with an ice cream and there is also colouring pack available.
we had a nice night. Nice staff, nice but average food. Reasonable prices but very noisy which was expected given that it was a Friday night. Toilets need attending to
