I cannot recommend The Royal Oak more highly - Mark and Sally were a brilliant host and hostess and looked after a large group of us very well. Bedrooms were all great and dinner was delicious; not to mention the ale!

Stopped here for dinner during our tour of Exmoor and enjoyed our meal very much. This place is obviously popular with the locals so you may need to book. Friendly staff and good service. Nice range of beers on tap. If passing through Winsford again would definitely call in.

Hello Mike and Mack. It was lovely to welcome you back again. We enjoyed your company and we're pleased you're back in fine form. Mack, we suggest you you turn the hearing aid up a little and get them slow down the new pacemaker, otherwise you might wear yourself out. We hope to see you again soon, regards, Sally More

Wonderful holiday and second visit all the way from Australia. Just a short stay but love the inn, the people, and the atmosphere. Recommend this place if you are looking for a quiet, country retreat with a rustic atmosphere, good food and conversation.

We were very impressed with the whole experience. The landlord was very welcoming, the waiting staff were very attentive. The food was excellent.... More

We found this little gem by accident. The welcome was lovely as are the owners Mark and Sally. The room was very nice, the bed incredible and the food extremely nice. We hated leaving and can't wait to go back. We will DEFINATELY be regulars from now on
