Eat like royalty, drink like a local.
Established in 1848 and as majestic as a country pub can get.
The Royal Oak Penola is on the main street of Penola, in the heart of the Coonawarra region one of the country’s smallest, oldest and finest wine regions. Drop in for a relaxed dining experience and enjoy our seasonal menus, specially prepared by our Executive Chef Kirby Shearing.
South Australia’s Limestone Coast is one of Australia’s most productive agricultural regions and we pride ourselves on supporting local producers for our seasonal menu. And, being a pub, we also have all the classics that you expect along with modest accommodation.
Our wine list features wines sourced from within 150km, however, every now and then we showcase something smashing from afar.
The Royal Oak Cellars stocks a greater range of wines from around the Limestone Coast region and Australia. You are welcome to wander through our cellar, purchase a bottle and enjoy it in the pub for a small corkage fee.
