On the menu was exmoor lamb, beef and venison as well as locally sourced rabbit. I opted for rump of lamb and it was top class as was everyone's in my group.... More

The Royal Oak Inn was a fantastic place to stay. The rooms were spacious and clean, the bed was very comfy and the food was delicious. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, especially when due to unforeseen circumstances we needed to stay an extra night. Very impressed!!

The inn itself is as delightful inside as outside and the rooms are cosily appointed and clean. The staff were extremely friendly and attentative and the food was... More
