Steak was cooked to perfection just how I asked! Nice little place to stay or dine and the staff are very helpful would definitely recommend as staff are not only very polite and friendly but also really helpful and the food is also really nice. Fish and chips is also really nice

Visited a number of times recently and the problem they had with lots of flies has absolutely disappeared. Well done to the owners for this and you keep possibly one of the best pints of Old Peculiar as well. Lovely pub

We stayed here for a wedding in the village and it was an excellent choice for being able to explore the pretty surroundings of Great Ayton. It would be a cosy place to come back to after hiking in the area too. The rooms aren't huge but have been decorated in a modern style, the beds were comfy and we... More

Great location bang opposite the village green. The staff were extremely helpful and co-operative. They allowed us to store food that we had previously purchased in their freezer. We were also allowed to put our plants in the courtyard instead of having to leave them in the car overnight. The hotel is very busy on Friday and Saturday nights -... More

We took some visitors from the US to sample a 'traditional English pub'. They were delighted with the atmosphere. Quite an extensive menu but largely standard 'pub fare' - everything from fish & chips to steak & ale pie and big steaks. There was a bit of wait between courses but we were there to relax and were not trying... More

Went for tea with my wife and son and luckily arrived before 6pm as there are offers on before this time. We all had different dishes and they were very good and were also good size portions despite being on the 'Specials' menu. Looking at the menu, however, I dont think I would be coming back on an evening as... More

I was a little apprehensive going here based on some of the reviews but the food and service was pretty good. We stayed in a cottage nearby and the owner recommended it for food. We arrived quite close to the end of serving time and the barman taking our order ran it directly to the kitchen to avoid any issues.... More

We stayed at The Royal Oak in Great Ayton for a couple of nights and really enjoyed our stay. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. Good hearty food at very reasonable prices. Room possibly in need of some TLC but bed was comfortable and had a good night's sleep. Bath was welcome after walking the moors. Great Ayton is... More

stopped here this week on business trip, was very impressed the staff were very helpful, room comfortable, and it was a very nice change from the usual corporate circuit. There is real ale in the bar and very reasonably priced and excellent food, this was a real surprise ! a cut above the "pub grub" standard. If I am back... More

Went to pub for family meal all 18 of us when the pub was busy. Served with drinks quickly and order taken within 10 minutes. Food arrived faster than expected given the pub was busy at the time. Food was good and all enjoyed the day. Staff were attentive even though busy and couldn't do enough for you. Would I... More
