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.

Saw sign on main road for Royal Oak after day out walking with friend. We were looking for somewhere to eat on way home. Have been through Winsford many times but didn't realise they had the pub. We were very impressed with the whole experience. The landlord was very welcoming, the waiting staff were very attentive. The food was excellent.... More

My husband and I stayed at The Royal Oak for 2 nights in July, with our Yorkie Dog. Excellent accommodation. Excellent service, friendly owners and staff. Food was second to none. Well placed for places to visit. Would really recommend

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

We loved this place when we stayed here a few years ago, it's Definately not a touch on what it used to be. Carpets in rooms are in need of a clean, staff aren't as friendly and food is expensive and disappointing .

We understand that some people might find that being quiet is disappointing but the majority of our guests do enjoy the peace, tranquillity and unspoilt nature of Winsford and Exmoor National Park. All our team live in the village and don't consider themselves to be any less friendly than they were as they work hard as a team to make... More

Thanks Mark and Sally for taking time out from your busy day to make us feel vey welcome at your beautiful inn. Situated by a mill stream with great walks and scenery to die for, it's an ideal location for exploring this beautiful area. We would highly recommend choosing this as a base when in the area.
