Remote NSW pub proves popular with truckies after budget-friendly meals

The Royal Hotel located at Mount Hope in NSW has been popular with truckies wanting a meal at a reasonable price.

Mount Hope is situated 95km north of Hillston and 160km south of Cobar and with the surrounding area had a population of less than 30 residents.

Numerous drivers have told Spy it is a great place to stop in a country town.

“I stopped there yesterday and had steak and eggs for breakfast and it was cooked to perfection and nice,” one driver said.

Spy contacted the publican Chris Frankel who runs the pub on Kidman Way with his partner Leanne. They’ve been there for 30 months.

“We get lots of trucks stopping here and there is plenty of parking nearby and just up the street. Their favourite food is rump steak. The trucks come from many places,” Chris said, adding that they open at 8am.

It has clean showers and toilets – and as a bonus, drivers can read Big Rigs, which is delivered there each fortnight.

The historic hotel was established in 1883.
