I first came to The Royal Oak 30 years ago and have seen it's highs and lows. It is now under new ownership and I have no doubt that very shortly it will be "the place" to go on Exmoor. 6 of us visited for lunch and had great food and drink. Service very friendly and it was very relaxing.... More

What a relief to find that this stunning pub has been taken over by Doug and team! We are local and regularly go out for meals and we have had the pleasure to visit a few times in the last month and have to say the place is going to be hard to beat!... The atmosphere, service, landlord,food,drinks,staff are the... More

As regular visitors to The Oak in the past we were saddened to hear of its problems in early 2013 and to witness the series of poor reviews received whilst it was under administration. As a result we chose to stay away lest our many happy memories of this lovely Inn were tainted forever. Thus we were delighted to read... More

Stayed here on the third night of our Coleridge Way walk and found the hotel and staff most welcoming. The hotel is in the throws of massive refurbishment and update programme but don't let that put you off..... the rooms and facilities are all online and very comfortable. Have to say though in our room (called 'Mischief') there was neither... More

This was a last minute night away & we picked the perfect place. The welcome we received from the landlord made us feel at home instantly. The food is absolutely delicious and doesn't cost a fortune. Breakfast was probably one of the best we have had, so much choice we didn't know where to start. There is quite a bit... More

We booked here while on a hiking trip, we thought it was closed! but we found the door and had a very good welcome. The room was excellent, but no TV the new owner told us that he was getting new TVs for the rooms (we believe him) as he had only been in the hotel for one month. A... More

Lovely service from the owner as well as being very welcoming. Would highly recommend for dog owners as VERY dog friendly. Location is surrounded by beautiful scenery and lots of place to walk the dogs.

Just had a weekend stay for our anniversary. The inn had fallen on poor times but the new owner has major plans to radically improve it. External work is almost complete, real ale is back on tap and the food was excellent. The owner is going to totally refurbish the bedrooms ( reducing the number to make bigger and better).... More

This is our local pub/hotel in Luxborough. It is ancient and has oodles of charm. Doug is obviously going to make this a destination hotel/pub. It is in the middle of fabulous walking country along the Coleridge way. We had Saturday and Sunday lunch in the pub which were both fabulous. The wines are good too.

The Royal Oak has re-opened under new ownership, and we wish them every success, the Hotel and Restaurant was at one time Egon Ronay listed and deservedly so, then things changed it is difficult to know why, but change they did ultimately leading to its closure, but hearing that it was back open and under new ownership we chose to...
