After a day of walking, we were looking forward to an evening meal & a good beer in here. It looks really nice & has good reviews, but the sign on the door said no dogs in the bar! , We turned around & went elsewhere. Shame, especially in a dog friendly area, popular with walkers.

Recently stayed at the Royal Oak Hotel. I would classify this as a pub style hotel as it was located over the pub/restaurant. The room are small but tidy and clean, no issue for a place to relax and to get a good night of sleep. The owners do a good job in making sure that all is taken care... More

Royal Oak is an ordinary looking place, but provides a good value dinner, with generous portions served by friendly staff. There's also a dart board and games. What more could you want after a day rambling the Cumberland fells? Cheers marra!

Just back from three nights at The Royal Oak Hotel. As usual it is a joy to return!!! Were warmly greeted on arrival by owner and managers. Always a good start. Our room was freshly appointed with lovely art work of The Lakes, an exceedingly comfy four poster bed and a pleasing on suite bathroom. Overall.... Faultless. Once again the... More

Rooms clean and comfortable. Restaurant still good - our small group has stayed there several times in the past. Pub has had the same owners for many years - good sign - and we still return from time to time.

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...

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.
