Great food with large portions and a friendly warm atmosphere. The function room was well decorated and the service was very efficient. A great evening celebrating a 50th Wedding Anniversary in a great pub. Plenty of clean plates confirmed whichever dish was ordered it was well received. Worth a visit if you are in the vicinity.

Well what can I say, I have the absolute pleasure of staying here for a few weeks whilst working in Devon and it is one of the best places I have stayed in years! The food is amazing, just what is needed after a hard days work or trek on the nearby Dartmoor, washed down with some of the finest... More

We booked at the last minute and found it difficult to find anything on Valentines night. So we were very surprised to get a booking at The Oak. It’s a very nice pub that clearly wants to be taken seriously as a restaurant and it should be. I had scallops and my wife had the chicken bruschetta for starters, followed... More

The oak as it is called by locals is a fantastic pub in a lovely village. The pub it's self is a real gem, good real ales tall tales (from the locals) and fantastic food. The royal oak is situated in the middle of the village and within spitting distance of the moors. If you need to get some where... More

The Royal Oak is referred to "The Oak" by citizens of the oft-forgotten getaway on the cusp of Dartmoor between Ivybridge and Ashburton on the A38 called South Brent. There are three Inn options: the Pack Horse Inn (village-centre); Glazebrook House (modern luxury retreat outside the centre) and the Royal Oak Inn. Of these three options I find the Oak... More

Had never stayed in rooms above a pub before so wasn't sure what to expect.Husband went ahead to check in while I parked in the public car park around the corner - he came back with the thumbs up! Our room (Room 3) was spacious, spotless, warm and well equipped with everything you would expect in a high class hotel.Bathroom... More

Had an one night stop over at this excellent pub, very friendly and attentive staff, lovely choice of vegetarian options on the menu and 3 very well kept local beers from the Dartmoor and Teignworthy breweries. Would recommend highly to anyone who wants to stay in south Dartmoor area

I first stayed here in 2011 on my own as I have an elderly relative who lives in sheltered accommodation in South Brent. I described it at the time as faultless. I stayed last weekend with my partner and it is still faultless. Both times I have stayed in Room 3. It is clean, bright and spacious. Bed is very... More

I must confess, when we originally booked the room, we didn't expect too much, given the reasonable room rate, and that sometimes rooms above pubs can leave something to be desired, but as soon as we arrived, we knew that this wasn't the case at all... The room in the Oak was of a really good size, and was clean,... More
