Me and my husband stayed here for one night, i was a bit dubious being over a pub and expected a lot of noise when really there wasn't any.

Excellent place to stay, couldn't fault the staff or food both of which were excellent. However, on our first night we dined in the first part of the restaurant area were dogs accompanied their owners, this area is also where the rooms are accessed from. There were 2 tables with dogs and the rest without. The following evening we entered... More

My wife and I have recently returned from a weekend break to the Royal Oak in Appleby. The staff are fantastic and the breakfast is pure quality, great room and one of the comfiest beds I have ever slept in. Great beer and a friendly atmosphere would definitely stay here again

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
