One of the legacies of the success of TV series such as Heartbeat and Herriot can be found in the high cost of accommodation in North Yorkshire. There are some lovely places to stay in the beautiful village of Helmsley, for instance, but finding affordable good quality places to stay can be a problem. Look no further than the Royal... More

Stayed here with my partner for a friends wedding in January. Room was clean and comfortable, friendly staff.

( I don't deal with the cold very... More

A lovely Georgian pub with plenty of character, and very friendly. My room was spacious and very comfortable. Good value and highly recommended. There was no food available after 5pm on Sunday, but there were several alternative restaurants in the market square.

Had a very good stay on an early season cycling trip. Very warm welcome from Gail & Mick our friendly hosts. Rooms warm, & clean. All facilities were great. We had no noise issues but the rooms are in a pub! so maybe this is something previous visitors have commented on. Great full English Breakfast & excellent value. Would recommend... More

We ate here three nights during a four night stay in Helmsley. Big menu to choose from and good value tea time specials. Staff very friendly and gave a special welcome to our dog Bailey each night. Highly recommended.

Bit noisy if you want an early night. Room was nice, simple. Food in pub was quite good, above average for the price. Very good location, right on centre square.I feellfeel this review must be 200 characters

Thank you for your review. Our rooms are located above our bar, so noise can be an issue. To help ensure our guest's stay is comfortable we do turn all music down before midnight, earlier through the week, and keep appropriate opening times. We are very happy you enjoyed the food and the location. More

Recently had a night in Helmsley at the Royal Oak. The room was very comfortable with a good sized bathroom. Our only fault was the noise late at night, mostly from the Feathers hotel across the square. We didn't eat at the pub other than breakfast which was very good.

We visited The Royal Oak Hotel and had a lovely time. There was a warm, friendly atmosphere and a selection of fine beers. A home-cooked meal which was delicious (a parmo with homemade chips, and a steak pie) followed by desserts (Baileys cheesecake, and an apple pie). A pool table in the far corner, and Sky Sports kept me entertained.... More
