I stopped here for lunch on the way to whitby by pure chance. I ordered the steak pie and the rest of my party ordered the cheeseburger and scampi. Now this is not the cheapest venue by any stretch however the portion sizes were phenomenal!!! My pie crust was almost a dumpling, it was great and my plate was packed... More

Had an overnight stay here to visit Helmsley. Not a lot to say really as the current owner leaves at the weekend. The room was clean and tidy and quiet and everything worked. The breakfast was good. We ate elsewhere, no reason other than we've visited Helmsley before. The bar man seemed more interested in playing pool and sorting his... More

Dropped in on a Monday evening looking for food, the barman recommended the steak pie, so glad he did, it was delicious and lots of it at a reasonable price, thoroughly enjoyed our meals washed down with a local ale and a thatchers. The staff were really friendly. Down side was smokers in the entrance, had to push through all... More

Having toured Helmsley Castle, we decided to refresh ourselves. The Royal Oak looked okay from the outside but we were a little surprised by the rather dated interior. However, the friendly welcome we received more than made up for this and we enjoyed two of the beers on offer - Jennings (of Cockermouth, Cumbria) Brewery "Bitter" (3.5% ABV) and Ringwood... More

Hotel was ok. Staff were mixed. Some really lovely, some a bit rude and moody. There was no hot water and the bathroom mirror light didn't work so it was difficult doing my make-up, but the bed was relatively comfy and the room was nice and big and very clean. Over all not bad. Room was soooo quiet. Couldn't hear... More

Called in here as we do every time we are in Helmsley. As this was mid week it was quiet , I ordered two pints of Peroni and a bottle of cider, the barman charged £4.70 for a pint of Peroni ! When I asked why it was so much and if he had made a mistake all he kept... More

I was in a group of 6 eating here on a Saturday night. We weren't disappointed in the quality or quantity of the food. I had a home made pizza which was excellent, the lamb chop specials looked good, as did the steak pie. A point knocked off for not being able to have steak pie with chips AND veg,... More

We had a lovely pub lunch here on our trip to Helmsley last weekend. The food was great, the staff were really nice and friendly, it served good sized portions and was very well priced. We were very pleased thank you :)

The food here is always up to scratch. Always have a great choice on the board to compliment the regular menu. Look forward to our next visit for good banter with all the staff. Wish Craig all the best wherever he finds himself. Doug n Gill

Called in today with the other half, we both had the roast beef and it was delicious. Couldn't knock a thing about it, meat was lovely, veg cooked nice. The staff were really helpful and moved us to a better table when one became free. Would definitely go again!
