Photo and description looks good .. but!!

Stayed for 1 night recently - really wished I hadn't. Landlady's attitude aggressive and confrontational to mildest question. Not the slightest hint of a welcome. Couldn't wait to get out and have a meal in a normal atmosphere. Room OK.

Just been informed that the Royal Oak has closed. Certainly looked closed when I drove by the other day - shabby and dirty outside, paint peeling on the lovely black and white timbers - shame, as another reviewer has pointed out, this was a premier pub in Tenbury years ago.

This used to be one of the best pubs in Tenbury, but has degenerated over the past 10 years. The exterior is dirty, with and out of date poster, and the prime parking space occupied by a car with no numberplates. Inside the menu haslittle choice for vegetarians, and it is freezing cold. Service is not with a smile. Won't... More

What a tired old place, it needs a huge cash injection to bring it up to date. I don't think that I'll be visiting again.

Our wedding party booked all the rooms and additional guests who had paid to pitch tents or sleep in their camper-vans - all booked breakfasts and seven had lunch the next day. The rooms are very basic- no wardrobes, coat-hangers, bedside lights and temperamental TVs. Breakfast was good but no attempt was made to clear tables whilst we were eating.... More
