We have just return from a fantastic Weekend at the Royal Oak to celebrate my birthday. We were made most welcome by Mark, Sally & all the team. We all enjoyed the banter with the whole team, we were made to feel we had known them all for Years. The food was amazing, there was a very good selection of... More

Visited this beautiful country pub recently whilst staying nearby. We had not booked and it was Saturday night - but as we were early - 6 pm - we thought we'ed chance it. The only room was in the bar area, but as we had a dog that suited just fine. We had a friendly welcome, the landlord has a... More

Stopped off here for a late lunch. Superb food. Freshly. Cooked. Steak and ale pie was bursting with meat. Very filling. Make sure you are hungry. Nicely presented. The beer was well kept. Couldn't manage dessert but apparently they are all homemade. I bet they are yummy. Friendly chatty staff make you feel welcome.

As regular visitors to Exmoor, we visited the Royal Oak at Winsford recently on two consecutive nights to eat. On the first night, which was a Tuesday, we were late deciding where we were going to eat so arrived at 1945 and asked for a table for two with our 3 small terriers at the bar. The immediate response from... More

On Tuesday, every dining table we had available was in use, the whole team were working at full capacity and we could not have accommodated any more diners. On Wednesday, the staff, locals and visitors who were present and witnessed the exchange do not recall it the way it is described. This reviewer booked a table for 2 people and... More

The village and people of Winsford are so fortunate to have this wonderful pub on their doorstep. If you are travelling through or walking anywhere near Winsford, then this pub should be on your radar. We visited the pub twice last week, once for Sunday lunch and again on Friday evening. On the Sunday, the weather was warm enough to... More

Thank you for your lovely review, we never rotate tables as we would rather you have a relaxed meal with us and a enjoyable evening. Because all the food is cooked from fresh, in busy times there can be a bit of a wait and we do appreciate customers understanding of this. Hope to see you again Mark, Sally and... More

Enjoyed a very nice, fresh and tasty Sunday lunch with the dogs most welcome to sit within the restaurant. Super location and staff all very friendly and welcoming. Would recommend booking though as it could get busy during high summer.

Stopped for lunch after a walk. Sat in the beer garden as we had our dog with us. Not immediately impressed by the dog mess on the grass and in the flower borders. Ordered two light lunches and two main meals, plus cider and beer. Service polite and timely but as I was finishing my pate I found cling film!... More
