Royal Albert

cnr Reservoir and Commonwealth Streets,

Ask most Sydneysiders where the Royal Albert is, and you'll probably get a blank look. It's tucked away on Reservoir Street in one of Surrry Hills' quieter areas. Once you've found it, though, you'll be greeted by a slightly tatty, threadbare bar, usually fairly filled with local booze-hounds. It's certainly a far cry from some stylebars nearby, but we're strangely fond of it, as a representative of a thinning breed of Sydney Pubs, the corner local. It's a bit cheap and cheerful, and not somewhere you'd go out of your way to get to, but if you're in the area, poke your nose in, you might find it a refreshing change.

This is my mate's local. He loves it. He is a hopeless pisshead, so it suits him to a T. The happy hour prices are good. It's not gay. All's good.

Most people hate the taste of beer to begin with. It is however a prejudice that many have been able to overcome. : Winston Churchill - more quotes...
