Stopped here on the way out of whinlatter Forrest. My partner had gammon steaks and I had the spinach and mushroom lasagne. Both delicious! Good value for money, perfect location & brilliant, friendly atmosphere. Got busy quickly but that's probably due to location.

Good homely hotel with friendly staff.Our room was smallish but adequate with comfortable beds,everything was clean and newly decorated. Breakfast was excellent with a good choice and everything cooked perfectly. However,we ate in the hotel restaurant on the first evening and were disappointed. The menu choice was limited(just pub grub),and not cooked to a good standard,consequently we ate elsewhere after... More

We visit here regularly and have eaten in many places in and around Keswick. For me this is the best even beating the Casa Bella in Keswick (next best). The lasagne is to die for and the location is nothing short of breathtaking. We stayed in the rooms this year and weren't disappointed. The staff are always friendly and breakfasts... More

I visited the Royal Oak on a Sunday night with my family after a long day of walking! The pub was really warm and cosy and we were served drinks at the bar promptly. The menu had a lovely selection of food and it was hard to choose what to have! We shared a generous portion of nachos to start... More

A table was not available for my husband, 2 sons and I to sit together- however a local couple happily moved to make it possible... More

Spent a lovely 5 nights here recently. The owners and staff were friendly, helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Traditional, good pub food with the bar and restaurant very busy in the evenings ( it was half term though) so worth booking. Children welcome and there is a substantial discount if a child under 16 shares the adults room.... More

Nine of us stayed here and were delighted with the hotel, the service , the restaurant and in fact, everything made this a memorable stay.It rained a lot and the management always saw that our clothes were place in a drying room so that they were ready for the following day.

We came to Braithwaite again this year and used the services of the Royal Oak. The staff were welcoming, always curtious and served you as fast as they could despite it being extremely busy. The beer, the infamous Jennings 'Snecklifter', was up to the usual high standard and very popular. The food was lovely and we ordered and received our... More
