Amazing food! Always of high standard and great flavor. Service is always also of high standard and friendly. And then there is also great beer on tap. What more could you want!

Great beer list, great food. Can’t pass up the cheeseburger spring rolls for a guilty pleasure. Friendly knowledgeable staff and a great footy tipping comp to boot.

Living in Richmond and with plenty of pubs on offer, I hadn’t bothered to venture down to try the Royston. Until now! What a gem of a pub this joint is. Friendly and helpful staff, wonderful and reas...onably priced food and a truckload of speciality beers to wet my whistle. Simply put, this place is marvelous. If I die and get to heaven it wouldn’t surprise me that there will be a striking resemblance to the Royston. Do yourself a favor get down and give it a go. You’d be mad if you didn’t. See More

So, I'm a fan of Monday locals night. I'm a long time lover of the Thursday steak night. Got involved in trivia the other week and loved that too. (Unexpected.) Just finished my second Royston Sunday ...roast experience and nothing could have been better. Service is professional, beer is cold, music is perfect, and I got to sit under a heater on a wintery Melbourne day. Roy, I love you. Best local ever. See More

What a great pub tucked away in s side Street in Richmond. The Royston is quirky, but in a grown up welcoming kind of way. The beer menu is terrific & the food was amazing, both at the bar & in the di...ning room. Very clever combinations to please everyone with tastebuds. Value for $$$, we will certainly return.

The service from your employees in the dining area was absolutely appalling. After spending $1000+ on food and drinks for a birthday event, you would think that you wouldn't speak to my father and my ...brothers who held the event so rudely. There was no aggression, excessive drinking or behaviour - a very moderate event. The Canadian female waitress couldn't be any more rude to any of the people she served, and had an absolutely disgusting attitude problem. For management to tell my father that "we are not living in the 60s" due to him asking staff to be notified when a table was available, and then asking many times if there was a table available, was dreadful. My father stood up asked the whole table if they were ready to order - and the female waitress again stated that she wouldn't be taking any orders until he sat down - however HE was paying for the whole bill. $1000+ at a pub for a family dinner!Disgraceful staff along with management as they did not know how to handle the situation.

This is the best pub in Melbourne. Food is always amazing, staff are great, and the beer list is second to none.

I used to love the Royston and come here once a week for a meal and beers. Really nice local vibe. One night I was here with friends and one of the barmaids tried to take my glass or off my hand. Ther...e was one finger left and I was about to finish it. I was a bit shocked and said I hadn't finished yet. She then went and bitched about me to the other barstaff. We were all surprised and I was pissed off. I didn't bother coming back for about 6 months. Last week I came back and had a good meal and was glad to have my local back. I returned with some friends tonight only to have the blonde barmaid from 6 months ago throw our food at us with her scowl. My friend changed his mind on his drink before he had finished ordering and was told to make up his mind. What a bitch. Might check in in another 6 months. Might not. See More

Thank you for changing your menu! I recently moved to the area and as a vegan, when first visiting here I rated it quite low as a place to go for a night out. But we were there on Friday night with fr...iends and I was most pleasantly surprised to see so many more veggie and veganise-able food options! You've now jumped high on my list of great options for nights out.
Thank you!

Such a great pub. Warm, welcoming and the perfect local. In a town full of homogenized bars this is a real gem. Staff are wonderful and the food is great too. Definitely give it a go!

Bar staff were cool! Good service. Wide variety of beer on tap. Although we didn't eat there...the food that was being served to other patrons smelled amazing. We'll be coming back...For sure!

Being the first purely craft beer pub in Melbourne, I felt like this place is definitely one I needed to check out. The staff helped me decide on some great beers before I sat down to eat one of the b...est Parmas I've ever had. Will be back for sure! See More

Loved it. Been there a couple of times when I've visited Melbourne. Last time they were doing a Feral tasting, which made it extra special to be able to get a selection of favourite beers

The Royston has changed a lot since I first helped empty the kegs in the late 80s. Much improved contents in the kegs for a start. And the food is pretty good too.

Came on Friday night for a Christmas party, staff were rude and very unhelpful. The person paying for the evening were treated terribly and every viewed the staff bitching about us asking to have more... table service. Certainly won't be going back. See More

This bar always treats us like we've been here 100 times.
Someone once told me glitter makes everything better. Well mostly it drives me nuts, but in this case they we're so, so right. Now pouring @twobirdsbrewing limited edition Stardust IPA a tribute brew dedicated to the life of David Bowie. Wonderful stuff, Cheers, Roy 🍻 #ziggystardust #twobirds #craftbeer #roystonhotel
While you are all just waking up trying to piece together what happened last night we've been up early to light up the spit for our @feralbrewing 12 tap takeover today from 12. So stop googling "hangover cures" and get down here for roast pork rolls, feral beers and good times. See you soon, Roy 🍻🐖🔪 #craftbeer #feralbrewing #spitroast
BBQ SHAPE PARMA!!! One night only tomorrow from 12pm with all the @thegrifterbrewingco beers on our taps. What a bloody brilliant public holiday Thursday!!!! See you tomorrow, cheers Roy 🍻 . .innovation credit to Mitch Sharman . #bbqparma #bbqshapes #royston #pubfood #melbournepubs #grifterbrewing #craftbeermelbourne #parmas #3121 #richmond3121

You know the worst thing about good beer week? That it ends.
But we are planning on going out with a bang and getting all Rocky Ridge high this weekend with these beauties from our friends out west.
If it wasnt for all the shark attacks and West Coast supporters I reckon i would move to WA. Their beers are tops.
See you soon,
Roy 🍻...
