We were travelling with our toddler and arrived late in the evening to find we had to climb to the top of the hotel up two huge flights of stairs. We were met by a tiny room, the colour scheme of which was very misjudged; it has obviously been renovated on a budget. The blinds were also broken and wouldn't... More

Sometimes tables can be in need of clearing of glasses and coffee... More

Second time I've stayed at the Royal Oak, both times really good. Staff are really friendly and helpful, rooms are good and beds comfortable. Good range of beer in the bar. Good breakfast. Good coffee to takeaway. We called back for lunch after the site visit and we had an excellent lunch, glad we did.

Very obliging and helpful staff who were prepared to accommodate my dog even though he was not expected, thank you. Very busy pub but as a result of the Christmas closedown and the staff coped and we were not inconvenienced. Nice... More

As always, the staff were very welcoming, friendly and polite and the food was well-cooked and tasty. My complaints are as follows: There was a... More

Had an over night stay there recently... From the moment we walked in, staff were very welcoming, friendly and exceptionally helpful. Had an evening meal there. Beautiful. didn't wait long between courses, and cooked to our exact requirements. Will definitely recommend this to family and friends!!
