My wife and i stayed at the Royal Oak over the August bank holiday weekend with our pet dog. May we firstly congratulate the staff for their superb customer service...nothing was too much trouble and they made a real fuss of our beloved dog! We stayed in a 'cosy room' which was more than adequate and served its purpose very... More

Stayed for 3 nights. Room, food and staff were very good. However, the hotel is dog friendly which in principle is great. In practice inconsiderate owners took their dogs to the restaurant. On the third morning I felt it unacceptable to have guests on the next table ordering a cooked breakfast for their large dog, producing two metal dog bowls... More

As regular visitors to Keswick we were looking forward to visiting the newly refurbished Royal Oak. However, we were left sorely disappointed! The sharing fish starter was pleasant but our mains left a lot to be desired...the best thing about the Sunday roast was the carrots and the T-bone pork was dry and the mushrooms were cold. It's a shame... More

We had a wonderful stay here during our trip around the UK. The service was excellent - really friendly, helpful warm and welcoming. The room was a little on the small side, but was very clean and cosy nonetheless. The decor and interior was really lovely and in keeping with the location. The room was serviced whilst we were out... More

Stayed here for 3 nights, the Royal Oak had just been re-vamped, the room was fantastic, clean and cosy, we booked a table for our first night, they managed to squeeze us in despite the restaurant being booked which was a great touch, food was good, no complaints here, no complaints with breakfast either, unfortunately the faults crept up, no...

The food was good when it finally arrived. Pleasant interior and atmosphere. Let down by amateurish service. The young staff were charming but didn't seem to be experienced enough to handle a busy, high season dinner. ========== We did not stay at the hotel

Thank you for taking the time to post your review. It's nice to know when we get it a little wrong as well as when we're getting it right.

This was our 1st visit to keswick and decided to have lunch at the royal oak. As title would suggest the atmosphere was lovely and the decoration brilliant. Staff were welcoming and friendly.

We stayed here as we were in the Lakes for a friend's wedding. From the outset, the staff were eager to assist, ensuring we had somewhere to change before our check in time; this was greatly appreciated after our long journey from Yorkshire. All staff were friendly and welcoming from the moment we arrived. The pub has clearly been recently... More

The staff were lovely and breakfast was good and plentiful.
