ROYAL ALBERT HOTEL

Tap takeovers are just some of the wonderful appeal of this old world public house that truly supports the local craft beer industry. And happy hour has returned under the early 20th Century name of swill. Huge applause: it is so good to drink at a pub that doesn’t look like an RSL club.
