Perfect place to start a weekend away

We chose the Royal Oak as it was close to the spa hotel we were visiting for the weekend. The food was ideal fuel following a tricky drive from Kent, basic pub grub, but filling and tasty. The service cheerful and quick. Best of all, the pub ran a two for one offer even on a Saturday lunchtime, so... read more

On the evening of the 2nd Feb we ventured to the Royal Oak. We had the 2-4-1 menu surf and Turf. The meal was excellent and the Steak was cooked to perfection. The staff was great and not forgetting the Kitchen staff. Lovely evening and meal myself and my Husband had.

The lunch time meal was of high quality and good value. 2-4-1 The starter and desserts were delicious and £3 each the main course is 2-4-1 and there is a good selection. Approx. £12 for 2 main courses. The restaurant has character and a well in the room covered with glass. Outside seating in the summer is popular and there... More

We made a last minute booking as we were staying overnight in the area and decided to choose here based upon the reviews we had read. We were not disappointed. Although it was packed our starters and mains promptly arrived. The service was straight forward and hassle free. Oh the food tasted great!

We pop to the Royal Oak at Brandon throughout the year, whether it be with friends or family. Visited with my friend at lunchtime today & recommended the Oak chicken (I always have this 😂)....& we both loved it. Booking is normally required as so popular, luckily we managed to get a table in the coffee lounge. Excellent 2 for... More

We e been visiting this pub for a few years now and always enjoyed a Ploughman's after a long walk in the adjacent woods. Since having a baby, it has been even more essential to find somewhere comfortable to go for a Sunday lunch. We tried the roast dinner in this lovely little pub and were hooked! At £10 it... More

We were taken here for lunch by a friend & will certainly return very soon. It was a busy restaurant with great food choice on both the main & the 2-4-1 menus. We also enjoyed a very acceptable bottle of the house Sauvignon Blanc.

Googled for a good pub nearby to have dinner, read trip adviser reviews and wasn't disappointed. From ringing ahead to book a table, right through to when we left, great experience. Food a cut above normal pub grub and at really good prices .... take a look at the menu and if there's something you fancy you won't be disappointed.... More
