(Party of four - lunch only; did not stay at hotel) Perhaps we just got unlucky with an ‘off day’, but this was a huge disappointment. The restaurant is little more than a pub – and it’s a pub-like experience. Although we booked several weeks ago we were assigned a table in a really dark corner with a cold draft... More

So much so that having run out of bacon, someone even rushed across the road to get some more from the butcher! Just as well as it was lovely. Super location in Yattendon; lovely building with friendly & helpful proprietors and staff.

We stayed over after attending a local show and 1st impressions were great...... Picture perfect location (even the weather was on form!) The bedroom was spacious, bright and we had a lovely sized bathroom. It was all looking very promising until we went down to eat. Over booked tables, slightly overcooked starters and average main courses left us a little... More

Staying here was a pleasure in itself. We had a room the the adjacent cottage which was spacious with a superb bathroom and lovely comfortable bed. There was a shooting theme - a gun cabinet available in the room, and the rooms named after, and decorated with pictures of, gunsmiths. Dinner in the restaurant (we had excellent guinea fowl with...

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!!
