I stayed at the Royal Oak with my husband for one night at the end of August. After having read mixed reviews on Trip Advisor I wasn't sure what to expect, but being as it is a B&B above a pub, and only £70 per night per couple, I reasoned that as long as it was clean and catered to... More

The room was very clean but lacked a mirror by a plug - very difcult when drying my hair so had to move a mirror from the wall to a plug next to the bed. There was black mould around the bottom of the shower cublicle that requires attention and... More

My husband and I love Helmley for a walk round the shops and an ice-cream. Today we decided to take my mum with us and stop for Sunday lunch. We chose the Royal Oak because it had a good selection of food and the prices seemed ok. £8.95 for a roast dinner. The pub was busy when we arrived so... More

We stayed here for three nights recently and loved it. We had used the bar freqeuntly during a previous holiday staying in a local cottage and returned to try their b & b accommodation for a short break. We were in room 1, which was lovely and overlooked the market square. All of the staff were really friendly and welcoming.... More

We had a lovely tea time meal here last night, frequenting the lounge and bar often! The welcome is warm and we always have a natter with the owners and love Rach the waitress who has been working in there for a long time. It is truly a pub atmosphere no pretensions of grandure and although the menu is quite... More

We often visit Helmsley, usually as a result of us touring in our caravan, we had wandered around the town wondering where we could eat with our dog, we found the Royal Oak in the Market Place and loved it. The food was very good, reasonably priced and served quickly by friendly staff, the Royal Oak will now be permanently... More

As Aussies travelling in the UK, we found Helmsley to be a lovely base to venture into the North York Moors and particularly handy to the North York Moors Railway at Pickering. Although we only stayed at the Royal Oak for one night, we found it quite comfortable and free overnight parking at front in the village square was appreciated.... More

We arrived in Helmsley on our way to Scarborough, as it was lunchtime we decided to have a bit of lunch, unfortunately for us we chose the Royal Oak. We ordered homemade tomato soup, sat down and waited for it to arrive. About 20 mins later my partner went to the bar to ask how long it would be before... More

I am going to be blatantly honest as without getting above my station - I feel that this will maybe help the pub improve slightly. On our way back home from a Bank Holiday in Scarborough we stopped for a break in Helmsley. Parked on the large village centre carpark and saw the Royal Oak as a good target to... More
