Point Richmond: The Royal Oak British Pub and Restaurant

AntarcticWidow | Jun 2, 2008 08:47 PM

We were heading home from dinner in Berkeley last Friday evening and decided to stop for a nightcap before heading home. As we drove through town, we noted signs of life emanating from the old Baltic Square Pub that has been closed for about a year. Things looked lively inside, both the bar and dining room were serving. Since we wanted a quiet place to sit and chat, we headed for the Hotel Mac.

After puttering around in the garden all morning, I walked down thinking I would grab a bite only to find that they are closed on Mondays. Instead, I took pictures of their menu they have posted in the window.

The dinner menu appears reasonably priced from $11.75 - $12.50 and comes with your choice of chips, sautéed potatoes or mashed spuds.

Fish, chips 'n peas
Meat & potato pie
Steak and kidney pie
Cornish pastie
Shepherds pie
Bangers and mash
Cheese & onion pie
Veggie curry pie

Lunch ranges from $6.25 - $12.50 and you have a choice of chips, potato salad or cole slaw. Their menu consists of a few of the items above with some variations, and other standards as cheese burgers, garden burger, tater skins.

They have a selection of salads (caesar, spinach, english), soup (leek & potato, fish chowder, mulligatawny), dessert (roly poly, sticky toffee pudding, apple dumplings). Also a few items on the menu for the "young'uns".

I am not a beer aficionado but they have what appears to be a decent selection of beer, draught, bottled and non-alcoholic. Other beverages include wine, the standard soft drinks, iced tea, coffee. You can even order a pot of tea for two, four or six people.

With the summer weather and the Point Richmond Music Festival starting up again, it will be nice to have a new place to walk down to on a Friday or Saturday evening.
