Very pleasant clean room and very helpful staff. Only problem is parking - there is no car park and you can only park in the market square for 2 hours. The food is good and the pizzas are well known .

Stayed here for one night. Rooms better than expected, king size bed and spotlessly clean. Would definitely stay here again. Had dinner over at the Feathers where we experienced a very rude barman! Had the carvery, which was the only option as extremely busy. Carvery was mediocre. Would have eaten at the Oak had it not been a Sunday (service... More

The staff were really friendly and the evening meal was tasty and a bargain, as the was the price of the room. It was a bit noisy being attached to a pub although not such an issue for me as I sleep through most things! The room was clean and the bed was comfy but the decor was a bit... More

Beautiful hotel in a great location. Friendly staff, excellent service. Lovely rooms with everything you would need. I had to check out early to assist the hubby on his ultra run, the bar staff were great and did my breakfast to go. Awesome

We rate 4/5 only because we didn't stay overnight. But that score was earned by the friendly welcoming staff and the excellent food. We had the lasagne and steak pie and both were delicious and good value for money. New to the menu was a trio of cheesecakes to share. All three were, well again, delicious, the lemon/lime one was...

Had 4 nights holiday this week in Helmsley. Had the good fortune to visit the Royal Oak in the market place for an evening meal. Value for money was exceptional so we (party of 6) went back a second time. Also enjoyed talking with Gail & Mick the owners in this family run pub. Had the Royal Oak burger &... More

Polite, friendly and very welcoming. In fact the landlord donated £20 to charity as we were cycling the Tour De Yorkshire. Overwhelming. Lovely breakfast and nice rooms. If you are staying for cycling there are rooms available to lock your bikes.

The place has a country pub feel about it and all that is lacking is an open fire. We had a Sunday lunch and choice of Lamb Beef and Pork, or all three. The food arrived hot and the waitress warned that the plates where very hot. Good section of vegetables all delicious. There isn't a vast menu but enough... More

Thank you for your review. We are glad that you enjoyed your Sunday lunch at our pub. Our Sunday menu consists of Pork, Lamb, Beef or Chicken and also includes Vegetarian Lasagne, Scampi or Steak Pie for people who don't fancy a roast! Just to let you know that we do in fact have an open fire, it's on the... More
