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

We decided to stay in Exmoor at short notice for just a weekend get away and I'm glad we did. 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

My wife and I visited The Royal Oak for three nights September 13. We were very pleased with our stay and would not hesitate to return. The room was compact and very comfortable with a nice soft mattress bed. The bathroom was adequate for our needs and the bathrobes a nice touch. The only downside was the TV, not a... More

Stayed with my husband Chris for three nights 20,21 and 22 August and we cannot praise the place enough. The food was just superb, all freshly prepared in house - I can particularly recommend the steak pies! The beer and wine is lovely as is the general ambiance. Highly recommended.
