We usually stay with friends in the area but on this occasion finally got round to booking at the Royal Oak to give it a try. One of us is very allergic to animal fur and as a dog friendly pub & B&B, we were slightly nervous of our plan to try it but forged ahead. Monika, the lady that... More

Enjoyable meal in a relaxed atmosphere. All the dishes in our three course meal were well executed and well put together and tasted very nice. Very friendly and efficient service. A reasonable choice of wines and nice variable menu but not cheap.

Lovely meal in the bar area here with friends on a Saturday evening. Service was attentive and friendly and all of the food served to us was judged to be excellent. The bar serves superb real ales from the West Berkshire brewery, including the magnificent Good Old Boy. Well worth a visit!!

It was a gorgeous Saturday afternoon, and we fancied going somewhere for a quiet, relaxing lunch — having previously enjoyed the Royal Oak, we drove up there, and were quietly pleased to see that the parking area was not absolutely full. We were offered a table under the vines or else on the grass, and picked under the vines —... More

I first stayed here 4-5 years ago when I could not find a hotel in Newbury. I had a drink and a meal and then headed up the stairs to bed. The waitress came chasing after me as I climbed the stairs to wish me goodnight. I was bowled over by the genuine & natural friendliness of the place and... More

Visited for a few hours on a very hot day in July. Waitress/owner? Was terribly miserable that here were 5 people who were going to order £50+ worth of food and drinks! Didn't smile once. What happened to 'service with a smile'? On top of that, the day was very hot, the lunch time menu consisted of cooked dinners and... More

Popped in for lunch, nice to see a reduced Sunday menu, this ensures a smooth service on an incredibly busy day. Great selection across the board.the produce was of the highest quality, Vickers Game? The level of service given by the staff and especially the owner was superb. Will definitely be back soon.

When we tried to book a room it was full, but the owner called us back following a cancellation and offered us a discount and some free drinks (not necessary, but what a nice gesture) .......we have stayed here a few times before, and had another great stay this weekend. The menu was a seafood theme this weekend, so I... More
