The Royal Oak Balmain


Built in 1879, The Royal Oak Balmain is still today regarded as one of the finest pubs in Balmain.

Balancing old world charm with modern day design, the pub is a popular destination for locals and a magnet for visitors who come to Balmain to shop, browse galleries and go to the weekend markets.

One of the first things you notice when you come to The Royal Oak is busy open plan kitchen, with several dining areas. We are passionate about food, wine and beer and pride ourselves in making sure our patrons are having a great time. Our front bar has a strong sense of personality and a real neighbourhood feel with a great range of local and imported beers both on tap and in the bottle.

The Royal Oak also has great function rooms and a delightful cocktail bar catering for small groups of 8 up to 140 people.

We are located in the character filled back streets of historic Balmain, one block off the main-hub of Darling Street and open 7 days from Noon. Click here to contact us.
