Booked by my wife for my birthday and allowed us to take our two Rottie dogs with us. Upon arrival I think the landlord was a little taken back as he showed us our room and asked how big our dogs were. When we said Rottie size, there was a slight look of shock on his face. But all was... More

We can highly recommend the royal oak to everybody!!! Its a cheerful, homely place with beautiful rooms and food we didn't want to stop eating!! We came from Spain for 4 nights and we would happily go back time and time again, we even thought about making our holidays longer but unfortunately couldn't! We'll be back soon though, and if...

Hi Jack L thank you very much for your kind comments in respect of the Royal Oak Appleby, and it is great to hear that we seem to have got everything right although I doubt we could provide the great weather you are probably used to. We are delighted you enjoyed the Cheesy Garlic Dough Balls keep a look out... More

I telephoned and asked for a room for my wife, one year old daughter and me. We were told there was a family room we could have at the price of a standard room if we paid the Saturday supplement. Great gesture as this meant our daughter would be in a separate chamber to the main bedroom. We arrived and... More

Its the first time I have stayed at the Royal Oak, and it will certainly not be the last. Originally booked a single room, I was given a double on arrival, so its always nice to get "bumped up". What I was most supprised at however was the quality of the room. This was of the highest standard and would... More

Stayed at the Royal Oak for 1 night and wished it had been more, what a little gem this place is. Stayed in a premier room and it was so attractively furnished and obviously much care had been taken to make sure their guests had every comfort. Bed and sofa were both very comfortable, bathroom was sumptious with a lovely... More

Just back from our third stay in this lovely pub since July 2013. It just gets better every time, we've now stayed in 3 different rooms and all have been lovely. This one - for size, decor and 'extras' like bathrobes etc - it was a Premier room - would not disgrace many a 4-star hotel. We stayed two nights... More

Nice welcome from staff, excellent food. Room was very roomy and comfortable. A wee bit away from shops if that was what you wanted, we had a walk around village before booking in, a quaint little place.

We stopped the night in a superior garden room which gives you a lovely patio door out onto the garden behind the pub. The breakfast is always delicious but if you don't have an enormous appetite stick to the mini version.

My wife and I decided to have a short break in Appleby. We used to holiday there many years ago with the family and took this opportunity to go down 'memory lane.' The Royal Oak is an excellent establishment. The staff are excellent, providing a great service. Nothing was too much trouble. The rooms are very comfortable and clean. This... More
