Royal Hilltop

18581 E. Hampden Ave. Aurora, CO 80013 | Aurora | 303-690-7738

Location Description:

Owners James and Tina Pachorek did something brilliant when they opened this small, family-oriented British-style pub in the far reaches of eastern Aurora: They created a casual, laid-back, non-threatening restaurant that people want to return to. The menu, while lacking the glitz and style of trendier eateries, is filled with soul-satisfying pub food - bangers and mash, shepherd's pie with stout gravy, fish fry every night of the week - and the bar is well-stocked.
