THE Gympie Times Facebook followers have spoken, declaring The Royal as the best pub in town for a top notch meal.

We asked our online followers on Tuesday to nominate their choice for a top meal in town and the suggestions came in thick and fast.

There were 18 different nominations and some spirited discussion between Facebook followers, but it was The Royal winning the hearts and, arguably most importantly, stomachs online.

From 111 votes, The Royal attracted 27 votes by mid afternoon yesterday when the votes were tallied.

Closely behind was The Phoenix (21) and Charlies Hotel (15).

Among the decision-making were comments related to service, atmosphere, live entertainment, price and serving size.

Being family-friendly was also another factor expressed by many mums and dads responding online.

The Royal duty manager Linc Phelps was chuffed with the feedback yesterday and said a team effort was behind the pub's success.

"Everyone works really hard - in the kitchen and out the front and behind the bar," he said. "I think consistency is the biggest key.

"In a small town, there is no hiding with word of mouth and social media."

Mr Phelps said The Royal's mantra was "quality service and food at a reasonable price".

The Royal's head chef Rebecca Fontana was excited and thanked her team.
