The Royal Hotel is at 180 Henley Beach Road, Torrensville. Myrtle attends the quiz nights there on a regular basis and Merkel occasionally joins her. The meals are good and the staff are friendly. On this evening Merkel felt his knowledge of Zodiac signs was good but his recollection of the singers of James Bond themes was seriously flawed.
Merkel ordered the hot chocolate from the dining room bar. This was a creamy milk chocolate flavour topped with a bubbly froth. It was served in a glass mug and saucer.
