The room could do with a bit of updating, but was perfectly comfortable and had all the things you need. The food at dinner and breakfast was very good and the landlord couldn't have been more helpful and welcoming.

First time visit and at first we were not sure whether to stop as the welcome could have been warmer but we had a meal and it was very good. Lovely pub and worth a visit as the food is very good. There seemed to be quite a few people staying there as well.

Just returned from our second stay in as many weeks at this fabulous pub in the heart of Exmoor. The first visit was 3 nights and the second just one (wished could've been longer!). The staff are really friendly, the food was delicious (recommend the lamb for dinner and the haddock for breakfast) and the rooms clean and comfortable with... More

We last visited in January last year when the new owners had just taken over and were settling in. We have been again three times this month and are delighted that their efforts have been great. The food, choice and ambiance are once again great. We also enjoyed a couple of the Sunday night quiz nights, so a good time... More

Our party was 17 family and friends .We were not kept waiting and the food was amazing. Would recommend it to both locals and tourists, not expensive and well worth a visit. New Landlord certainly knows how to run a decent pub. Bonus is that its dog friendly.

We spent three nights at this pub in the tiny village of Withypool in the midst of the Exmoor National Park in November. Our room, Bedroom 1, was very comfortable, well-equipped and with a large bathroom. We had our evening meals at the pub and every time the food was superb, well above average pub food. Breakfast were also a... More

Combined with a professional and friendly service made good the end of a busy day. We shall be back! I... More

The Royal Oak is set in a small village in the middle of Exmoor away from everything (no phone signal ..... great but free wifi) On our arrival on Friday night we checked in to a lovely room, dog was...

Lovely peaceful village deep in Exmoor. Splendid old inn, with attractive bar(s), friendly landlord, but the food is the standout - far FAR above the norm, with a sure touch, plenty of imagination, and a good big plateful as well. Bedroom clean and comfortable. I am being a bit stingy in going to only 4 here - the bathroom was... More
