First impressions were that the pub and restaurant are in need of a little refurbishment. Nevertheless, we had a lovely evening meal. The food was really very tasty, reasonably priced and the portions were extremely generous. There is a wide menu choice and the service was very friendly and quick. I owned up to not being charged for two G&T's... More

Me and my wife have visited this pub a few times in the past but never fancied eating there because they allow dogs in. Not that I hate dogs just don't agree with them in places that serve food.The policy has now changed regarding pets,so we decided to give it a try & we weren't disappointed both meals came in...

Definitely won't be returning first and last time misreasble staff really spoilt it for themselves as every other pub is so welcoming spent £10 to.much should have left after first drink! But won't be disheartened as the lakes is a breathtaking place

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

After a lovely walk around butter mere lake we spotted THE ROYAL OAK served food. So we returned in the evening for our tea. We arrived 5.45 & advised food does not start til 6pm. 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
