Could not recommend this lovely pub/hotel highly enough. Whether it's a day trip surrounded by beautiful countryside, some castle ruins and a lovely home cooked pub meal you want or a lovely place to stay. Staff were excellent and very accommodating for the young man i took with me who has autism. They cooked a special meal of sausage chips... More

Visited for sunday lunch with family, great choice. We went for traditional sunday lunch and the steak pie. First class food served in a relaxed atmosphere. Looking forward to trying the weekday menu which presents a massive choice. Keen to try an overnight stay, and sample the beers too. Clive & Jackie from Kirby Hill Nr Boroughbridge

I have been here a couple of times for food and drinks. I highly recommend the home made steak pie and Sunday roast. They even make their own Yorkshire puddings which is rare. We checked the rooms out as we planning a girls weekend. The rooms are beautiful, clean and everything you need. Looking forward to an over night stay... More

Had a great steak pie and chips meal in this lovely little pub. Healthy sized portions and all home cooked. You couldn't ask for more from a country pub. Pleased to say that they welcomed dogs in the bar area too.

This was the first time me and my girlfriend stayed at the Royal Oak last weekend. We thoroughly enjoyed it, the landlady was lovely and very helpful. The food was fantastic and well priced. Our double room was spacious and clean and the bed extremely comfortable. We stayed here because it was the best price in Helmsley including breakfast which... More

Would definitely recommend anyone to go to The Royal Oak. It is in a lovely location, and everything about it is just fabulous. The staff are great, and very friendly - Can't do enough for you! And I would definitely return for one of their home made meals. Everything is reasonably priced, and portions are plentiful. Definitely a place to... More

I highly recommend a meal at The Royal Oak, we visited on New Years Day and had a lovely lunch, very big portions and all the staff were so friendly. We'd definitely return for one of their homemade pie dinners next time.

Just spent a fantastic Sunday afternoon at the Royal Oak. The food was delicious and very reasonably priced. There was a great atmosphere and the staff were very friendly. I understand that they have recently changed management and I can only say that the new guys have definitely set off in the right direction. The Baileys cheesecake was stunning.

My wife and I spent a pleasant couple of hours in the Royal Oak whilst on a coach trip to see the Christmas trees in the church. We both had the steak pie, chips and vegetables. The food was excellent, the portions were big and the management (who were new) and staff, were extremely friendly. Being a real ale fan... More
