Default A ROYAL TOUR

I took a Royal Tour on yesterday's ride to Inverloch:

Royal Hotel, Ferntree Gully:



This is the entrance from the rear car park. The front is much more impressive, but located on the corner of a very busy intersection, even
at 8:30 on a Saturday morning, taking a pic would not have been prudent.

Royal Hotel, Drouin:



A lot quieter here. The pub is currently closed for renovations.

Royal Hotel, Koo Wee Rup:



I was impressed with the building, must've been some $$ in Koo Wee Rup back in the 1930's (I'm guessing).

Royal Hotel, Loch:



Now closed, no sign of it being re-opened. The way lots of pubs are going in rural VIC, and I'm sure other parts of AUS. Also very impressed with the size of this pub, especially considering Loch has always been a small town.

Next Royal Tour will be trip north, hoping to get more Royal Hotels.

You didn't see the service lane out the front?
