We came here to eat as we were staying at the feversham Arms and it was to expensive! We ate here for two days and both times found the food to be amazing well presented and utterly delicious. The staff were very polite and friendly, would recommend anyone in the area to eat here.

Walking into the Royal Oak is like walking into any traditional British pub. I'd booked a night there at short notice and found my room had been nicely refurbished. It was spacious and comfortable, with a view of Helmsley Castle. I didn't sample any meals in the evening, but my breakfast order was taken when I checked in, and cooked... More

The rooms were clean and comfortable and the breakfast is a great start to the day. The evening menu is also well worth a try, the food is excellent value. Would... More

Stopped for dinner. Lovely menu Steak pie had proper meaty gravy and husband burger was huge but lovely and very tasty. Good kids menu and well priced. Lots of real ale on tap and did not have a pudding but they did look fab. Restaurant was busy but quick service and nothing to complain about.

The food here was excellent pub food and really reasonably priced! I had a Fantastic Brie and Bacon burger followed by yummy crumble and custard. All of our meals were generous portions and we all left having really enjoyed the meal. The staff were really friendly and helpful! Definitely worth a visit! See you next year!

Stayed here with my partner on Good Friday for one night. Very impressed at first sight, lovely little village and parked in the main square which is not free - only a few places in the village so be prepared to pay for parking until a free spot becomes available normally when the shops shut and people go home.... anyway...

Thank you very much for your detailed and honest review. We appreciate the parking situation around Helmsley can be difficult, especially with such a high amount of tourism through the day. As our booking system is automated and synced with Booking.com it speeds up our checking-in process and we already have all the details we need beforehand. This is to... More

We visited the royal oak hotel on the 2nd of April with our two children and their grandparents. This was day one of our family get together in Yorkshire. We were met by great hospitality and friendliness by the owners. The whole family thoroughly enjoyed the stay. The rooms were immaculate and the Yorkshire full breakfast was to die for.... More

Helmsley is a special place, a launch for the moors. The Royal Oak is the perfect place to start. Clean rooms, enormous breakfast, very hospitable. We paid for 3 rooms and all were very nice. Of course popping down to the bar was a treat knowing the children were safe. Definitely staying there again. .
