This pub was chosen more out of convenience than for any other reason, but I was very pleasantly surprised by the service I received. I was meeting an old friend and wanted the evening to go well. It was very quiet when I first arrived, but this was mainly due to the fact that it was early. Both my friend... More

We had a splendid Sunday lunch featuring something to please everyone: succulent roast lamb, delicious home-made chicken nuggets and savoury cheese and potato filo pie followed by traditional desserts and washed down with local ales. We will definitely be back! Friendly service, enormous portions and good value for money.

We were staying in South Brent for a couple of days and decided we would have a pub meal in the Royal Oak and enjoyed it so much we returned the following evening for another meal. I had lambs liver which was cooked to perfection and my husband had beefburger which was also delicious, compliments to the chef. Next time... More

I used to live in South Brent and drink at this pub 30 years ago as a student, so I was intrigued to find how things had changed. As it happens the pub rooms were really nice, great showers and a really brilliant price for the twin room which a buddy and I shared for our one night stay while... More

i often stay here. All rooms excellent, food very good, often guest local beers and a relaxed atmosphere with personal service. Dog friendly downstairs. Even the wifi works. Comfy beds but beware, the train line is nearby so you will hear trains. They don't disturb but..

Excellent lunch, had sea bass cooked to near enough perfection on a chorizo and rocket salad. Very pleasant sitting arrangements only passing comment would be, not sure about the back ground music. A worthwhile visit thank you team.

Last minute booking but very pleasant all round. The twin room was a good size, very clean, fresh decor and lots of little extras. Everything had been thought of. Stayed in for dinner- good quality tasty food. Fantastic service all round. Breakfast was an awesome choice with starter and main! Would definitely recommend.

We spent 3 nights at the Royal Oak in this pretty Devon village, and had a wonderful experience. The room was comfortable (special mention must be made of the amazing memory foam mattress!) and immaculate, decorated with paintings by local artists. Food in the pub was home-cooked, delicious, and good value; breakfasts generous and prepared to order. The welcome was... More

Pub food meets fine dining..... clearly the chef has been watching too many episodes of master chef. Small portions and over seasoned food! It a shame because the inside of the pub is very nice with a good atmosphere and the staff are friendly.

We went here for a few days of walking, horse riding and so on, but the pub was by far and a way one of the best parts of the long weekend. Arriving friday afternoon, dropped the bags in the room (which was comfortable, well equiped with an en-suite of equal standards!) and down to the bar to sample the... More
