I stayed here on the 4th. June for one night while walking the Pennine Way. I hadn't been able to get any accommodation nearer as the Appleby Fair was on and so had to get a taxi to Appleby and back, 7 miles each way. I arrived by taxi to find the pub extremely busy and noisy as you would... More

As regular stayers here we are never disappointed with the food, attention to detail and room quality. iPhone docking station charger music systems (old style, needs adapter for iPhone 5 onward) and other touches are lovely. We had room 4 again which is a premier garden room and you have your own door into the large rear garden complete with... More

WE thought we had booked a room at a pub , when we arrived we were shown to a house/cottage which was situated alongside the pub with 2 other houses/cottages. my initial reaction was that they had mixed up our booking. when we enquired they told us we had been given the upgrade due to an overbooking.

We stayed for one night on a walking trip and the room we had was very large and comfortable. The wifi was excellent, as was the attention to detail in the room. The evening meal was first class, as was breakfast. The staff were very welcoming and attentive. All in all we were both very impressed by the Royal Oak,... More

Between us we tried a lot of the dishes on offer and all were very good. We felt like... More

We were staying near by to this pub and thought we'd book a table as it looked really nice on the website. All of our food was lovely we had the fish & chips and the Cajun chicken on the early bird menu. We would definitely go back next time we are in the area I would highly recommend it.
