Booked quite late for a night to enjoy the Tour De France. We were made very welcome from the moment we arrived. Very, very clean, comfortable room and fantastic breakfast that kept us going all day which we really needed. Thanks you very much, we will definitely come back.

We had a fantastic lunch and the lady (sorry forget her name) was just brilliant coping with a 10 mad pensioners. She even gave us tourist information... More

Great staff! Great food. Something on every night. Complete hidden gem. Mark is great - really helpful and a great singer! Also such a lovely village. The castle and bridge is worth the visit alone :-)

We went for a day out in Knaresborough and randomly selected this pub as a good place for lunch. We were happy to see that there were 3 different real ales on tap including Timothy Taylor's Landlord and Theakston's XB. Really good food - 3 varieties of homemade sausages made on the premises (as are the burgers) with Yorkshire puddings.... More

On returning late evening we generally had drinks in the bar and found the atmosphere inviting and friendly. Good food and comfortable accommodation. Ideal location / base to visit local area and attractions. We will definitely stay at the Old Royal Oak again.
