Whenever we're looking for a really great meal in lovely surroundings with good service, we end up at the royal oak. Especially if we have friends up from London. There are so few classy places to take people round here, but had the royal oak never disappoints.

Came here with a friend on a Sat evening. The pub has a really homely cosy feel and is decorated really nicely. The food came out in good time and was really nice and tasty. Brilliant little place and will definitely be visiting again.

Lovely food, but sat on the seats that look directly into the kitchen area, which I could see all goings on! I had the battered fish sandwich, the white roll was ok but soon became very soggy, worth using something more like a ciabatta or brown roll

The hotel is in two parts, the pub/restaurant, and the separate accommodation at the rear of the pub. The accommodation comprises of single level buildings with 6 rooms.

This hotel is more of a motel with rooms in the car park which you can park outside. The rooms are very well laid out with an excellent quality. The bed was very very soft though, and could do with being replaced. Very fast free wifi. The breakfast was lovely, and served very quickly which is exactly what you need... More

The lunch menu was limited - a couple of sandwich options or the a la carte menu (which was too much in my opinion for our lunch break).

We stayed here to meet up with family before Christmas and enjoyed a great dinner as well as overnight stay. The food was delicious and well presented, with plenty of vegetarian options too! Our room was spacious and comfortable and breakfast was spot on too! A great find and highly recommended!

Absolutely top class, perfectly cooked food. Starting with the terrine, followed by turkey cooked 2 ways. The meat was tender and full of flavour and the accompanying vegetables done to perfection. Speedy service and the staff were extremely helpful and friendly.
