We received a very friendly welcome on our arrival at Royal Oak Inn. Great choice of food on Menu. We opted for Roast Beef and trimmings, cooked to perfection. We will be returning in the future.

My wife and I are of an advanced age and there have in our life time enjoyed or otherwise many hostelries and can say without hesitation that the Royal Oak is by far our most favourite pub especially due to the ambience, friendliness of staff and quality of food. Pat and Roy

Sunday lunch with my daughter. Lovely old bar. Inglenook open fire. Roast beef, a pint of real ale and a small bottle of Proscetto. Excellent company. Beautiful surroundings. The meal was ‘OK’ but found the beef rather tough. Didn’t matter because we had an excellent time.

We really enjoyed our meal and the service was very good. Our only problem was that there were six men on the next table who were rather noisy, which I know you can’t help. Otherwise, it was great.

The overall experience was good. Would have scored higher on food if my wife's fish and chips had had more fish and less batter... whilst it was tasty there was just way too much batter! Otherwise good friendly and helpful service

Lovely traditional pub - locals in, always a good sign. Understaffed, had to wait quite a while before I could say we'd arrived for our booking & order drinks. Told where our table was but noone came to take our order so in the end handed a written order at the bar for which they were grateful. Food arrived promptly, generous portions & all dishes were really good. Apologised for service but confirmed understaffed that day. Despite that small drawback everyone was very happy, liked the place so as fairly local will certainly return.

We love to have Sunday roasts in all the pubs from Revived Inns and this pub specially, but last time there was only one choice of meat, which I suppose it is due to the Summer season, the service was a bit slow but we enjoyed it never the less, I would suggest to have a bit more choice in the wines by the glass, thank you

Nice atmosphere when we walked and found the staff very pleasant . My food had no taste and the venison was very chewy. My wife enjoyed her meal .
