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

Our room (Room 3) was spacious, spotless, warm and well equipped with everything you would expect in a high class hotel.Bathroom... More

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

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
