We stayed here at short notice to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary and what a great choice this was. We were warmly welcomed, and so was our dog Tia. We were made to feel as though we were personal friends come to visit, rather than paying clients. The room (#4) was a sumptuous suite, with a 6 foot very comfortable... More

My wife and I stayed at the Royal Oak for 4 nights and did nothing but eat and drink for all of it. The food was the best we have ever had and the real Ales kept to perfection. The room had the 4 post bed with a matress and pillows that were heavenly. This place is looked after and... More

From beginning to end our visit was faultless. The staff were welcoming and friendly. The room was exceptionally clean and the bed was really comfortable. The food was outstanding. Nothing was too much trouble. Emma looked after us so well. Digger's local knowledge was great and gave us advice on places to visit. All in all it was truly a... More

Great inn and very quiet location. Mark the landlord was welcoming and friendly throughout. He and his staff made us feel part of the family. Even the villagers of this small community are friendly and welcoming. Our room (#7) was spacious, well maintained and clean. We were at the front and there was no noise at any time. Comfortable beds.... More

Not a lot to write here, other than lovely atmosphere/surroundings, clean, good quality/well cooked and presented meals, friendly staff. It's not what I'd class as cheap, but it's not extortionate... Probably in line with other eateries in the area. You can't go wrong with this one really.

This weekend we camped at Halse Farm, up the road from this pub. Sunday evening we visited the pub for a meal (4 adults, 1 child AND 3 flat coated retrievers). We were made to feel very welcome, the dogs too!! and the staff were so friendly. Food was really good too. Had a really lovely evening and lovely hospitality!... More

Our Guest Ale changes periodically and the transition from one guest ale to another involves a full line clean to preserve the integrity and quality of the ale, it cannot be done in less than 20 to 30 minutes during which time the bar staff will inform a customer that a Guest Ale is not available so they are at...

We were very disappointed with our visit. The place looks great and is in a lovely location - and in all other respects looked very promising for an early evening dinner. however, one of us had the rack of lamb, which was far fattier - 80% of it was fat - than we've experienced before or how it should be,...
