Had a private dinning party for 20 having roast pig. They have a lovely room at the back which you can get 20 around. The service was excellent we had our own dedicated bar man who looked after us all evening. Started with drinks and Canapés in the lounge, followed by a 3 course meal the food was really lovely...

Visited for lunch a couple of weeks ago. Chose the 'a la carte' menu, rather than the set lunch, in order to have a greater choice. This was a serious mistake....a starter of three scallops (no bread) was followed by a small piece of seabass fillet & a chocolate dessert predominately consisting of pastry. Portion control was absolute. Service was... More

Stopped here this weekend for lunch. Lovely country pub in a great location. Very reasonably priced and friendly staff. Allows dogs so a good stop when walking with the family. Would definitely come back.

Back in November I posted a review on our experience at the Royal Oak's Steak and Lobster eveniing, which had been disappointing compared to other meals we had eaten there. Soon after, Rob the owner, who had not been on duty on day that fateful evening, contacted me to apologise personally and invite our party back to have the meal... More

This is a review of the pub attached to the Royal Oak hotel, We visited at the end of January, for a weekday lunch. The pub is set at the centre of a small, attractive village, is spacious, and well-fitted out with solid oak furniture. The garden to the rear looks worth investigating in better weather! The initial greeting was... More

We stayed here on a dinner, bed and breakfast basis to celebrate a birthday and a night away from the kids! The restaurant was very popular with a good range of options to eat. We had home made soup and gnocchi followed by mains of ribbon pasta with mushroom and a pork belly with mash. There was a good choice... More

My wife and I stayed in one of the Royal Oak- Yattendon's attached lodgings although upstairs rooms looked welcoming too when I asked to view one. Could not fault the place. Thoroughly enjoyed our 5 day stay. Wonderful, filling breakfasts and delicious meals. A real, character filled, English country pub with a not overbearing touch of class.

We spent two nights at the Royal Oak in Yattendon. The Royal Oak has 4 or 5 rooms above the pub/restaurant, but we stayed in one of the three bigger rooms in a renovated house next door, the Heym Room. Our friends were in the Beretta Room as all 3 of them were named after shotgun manufacturers. The Royal Oak... More

We regularly go to the Royal Oak and we can quite definitely say we have never been disappointed by the food. It is a charming, original, English country pub with not one but two welcoming fires; one in the restaurant and one in the den next door with deep comfortable chairs. We are always made to feel welcome, especially by... More
