PERTH | With all of the Raine Square developments and associated scaffolding in recent years, it became hard to remember what it was that was actually standing on the corner of Wellington and William streets. The answer is The Royal. The heritage listed pub, which dates back to 1892, has been restored and reopened, and it looks spectacular.

The Victorian era pub, with French renaissance flourishes, has been revamped by new owner John Parker (The Standard), and retains what’s great about the venues heritage while being contemporary where it counts. The drinks list skews local and independent, and the food focuses on modern Australian dishes that make the most of Western Australia’s bountiful produce and native ingredients.

I only popped in for a snack and a beer, and it left me wanting to rerun for more. I enjoyed the cured kangaroo loin (sort of like bresaola) with Davidson plum, stracciatella, and cracker. The textures and flavours of this Australian take on what’s essentially an Italian dish, work together wonderfully. To drink, it was a middy of @nowheremanbrewing’s Rhapsody XPA. Both did just the trick on a hot 40°C summer afternoon.

Watch this space, as I know I’ll be going back for more.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
