Visited with a group of friends in the evening and we enjoyed some drinks in the garden - staff are all really accommodating and friendly plus the atmosphere is relaxed. Lovely pub, well kept garden! Also not as expensive as I expected.

Just returned from a 2 day break at the Royal Oak, and I have to say it is a really nice place to stay. Set in a lovely village location, the rooms were nicely decorated, and the pub itself was really nice and modern. The staff were friendly and the Breakfast was very good. The only downside is parking can... More

A group of 11 university friends decided to do something different to celebrate our 40 th birthdays. We booked the VIP racing weekend and we were not disappointed. The races were brilliant and stress free thanks to the hotel sorting out transport, the Hotel was lovely with a beautiful outside area where we had a drink or two and the... More

Six of us - plus a little one and a pooch - stayed at the pub for a Ruby wedding, we had one of the private dining rooms and the feasting menu. Everything - from the welcome, to the service, to the rooms - was brilliant. The food was really good as well. The rib of beef we shared was... More

We went for a friend's hen do lunch and they had their 'Seafood Weekend' on. It was the most amazing food ever - I had crab and lobster pappardelle which was out of this world!! Would order it every time I went to the Royal Oak if I could! Rob gave us a glass of prosecco each to celebrate our... More

We have been visiting the Royal Oak for just under 6 years, typically for a Sunday afternoon roast, the occasional birthday party and Christmas day (on more than one occasion), not to mention a work summer party. The staff are always really polite and helpful and the food is consistently top notch, all in a beautiful setting. With a large... More

We're so unfortunate in this area to have so few good venues I find myself drifting back time and time again as the Royal Oak is at best a nice place to sit (in and out). I've been coming here with hope in my heart (and stomach) for at least ten years and on average twice a month. The execution... More

Went for evening meal following favourable reports. Unfortunately for the price it did not meet expectations. Firstly some of the dishes were not available and as these were from their pork selection this did not go well with me as I love pork. The Lobster, scallop, saffron and spring onion arancini starter was £12 and the amount of lobster in... More

We live locally and so decided to try the evening meal. We arrive early and were seated straight away which was great. The restaurant has a specials board but disappointingly at 745pm there were all gone. We ordered some sparkling water, it was served warm and we were not given any ice. The tables normally receive bread whilst waiting for... More

Arrived quite late after a long drive but received a friendly welcome and were shown to our room. The room was cold - the radiators were off - but soon warmed up when switched on - it would have been nice to arrive to a warmer room (our one small gripe). The room was delightful and we had a very... More
