Spent 2 nights at the end of March here. Staff were fantastic and amazingly helpful. So dog friendly , there was even a menu up in the tap room for our little furry friend. The nicest thing was coming in from a days walking, siting in front of the fire with your worn out pooch, and still enjoy a bottle... More

Stayed for a few days in the lovely adjoining cottage. The decor was modern and the bed very comfy. The cottage was kept clean throughout and it was a nice touch to have wifi. The pub had nice staff, nice food and a lovely pub. The value for money was alright. Would recommend.

After visiting here for a drink we decided to return that evening for tea, so pleased we did! We had the early bird menu so it was about £8 for a massive burger and my other half had the veg balti...both meals very lovely but the chips were perhaps not the best. Both kids ate all of their sausage, mash... More

We decided to spend a day in Appleby with our dog. I was told that it´s a quiet, place perfect to have a walk with a dog. I found this pub on the lists of the places where dogs are allowed. After checking the reviews, we decided to give it a try. The first impression was nice, good decor, friendly... More

Stopped off on the way back from Scotland for a quick bite to eat. We were made to feel really welcome from the monument we arrived and had a great meal which was reasonably priced. Would definitely go out of our way to visit the Royal Oak again if we were travelling on the A66.

We arrived during a blizzard and were made most welcome. It was lovely to sit infront of the fire and enjoy a drink. Our dog was made welcome too with a lovely goody bag to greet him. The bedroom was clean and comfortable although we had to dodge the beams! We chose to sit in the tap room and take... More

Lovely country pub with a fab atmosphere and the bedrooms were modern and comfortable. The fact that our little Bedlington could join us inside the place was great! Fantastic breakfast and lovely evening meal. We stayed over on a Sunday evening and to be honest Appleby was, to say the least, very quiet on this day. Hopefully more enjoyable during... More
