Surrounded by rainforests, pristine beaches and amazing vistas sits this idyllic neighbourhood Hotel, firmly since 1892. 


The Royal Crown Hotel is an easy going neighbourhood pub which attracts locals and tourists alike. 

The interior reflects the local flora and fauna with food and drink offerings to rival any other pub in Australia. Newcastle's best beer garden is extremely popular with families whilst the Front Bar offers a loud hub of racing, ping pong and local characters. 

Many visitors swing by after bushwalking, surfing, biking and climbing through Glenrock State Conservation Area. We have a huge range of classic and craft beers available coupled with an extensive wine list. 

No boring pub bands here just big quality acts. Recent shows have seen Boo Seeka, Papa Pilko and the Bin Rats, Bootleg Rascal and Dusty Boots grace the stage. 

An array of unique events make this pub one of the most exciting venues in the Hunter region.
