The rooms were just beautiful. Comfortable and luxurious. The tasty full English breakfast set us up for our day at the Great Yorkshire Show and the hostess was just lovely, Warm, friendly and extremely attentive providing advice about travel to the show and the local attractions.

What a lovely little gem we found, right in the heart of the town, the rooms are separate from the actual pub, which is a great bonus, we stayed in one of the double on-suite rooms number 1 which was very spacious, and a full size walk in shower. Parking was right outside the window. Breakfast was average, but the... More

Arriving at the Royal Oak right from the start, the staff were fabulous, they couldn't do enough for us. We wasn't supposed to be allowed into the room until 2pm but we arrived around 12.30pm and they said that the room was available immediately for us to check inn. This was fantastic because we had a ten year old with... More

We received a warm welcome upon arrival. There are parking spaces available at the back of the pub. although the spaces were full when we arrived. A member of staff moved their car so we could park. We had a downstairs room in the stable block at the rear of the pub. The room was clean and we had plenty... More

It makes a pleasant change when staff will go out of their way to move cars to assist. If you had booked direct we could have given a bit of discount on the room price with the... More
