A nice place to hide away for the weekend....

A nice welcome and good choice of beers. Good pub grub with steaks and stews. Welcome warm food after walking the dales.

We stayed in Wetton this weekend and had lunch here today. Busy place with good pub grub. There were 6 of us and we had between us the scampi, plaice and the soup and all were voted a respectable 4! The Royal Oak would have had an overall 5 from us, had the fire been on as it was a... More

Although it doesn't have views, The Royal Oak is situated in a little village in the gorgeous Peak National Park, which is a walker's paradise. Our walk brought us to Wetton a little late and we were concerned that they may not still be serving lunch. We need not have worried as they serve food all day. The welcome was... More

Every bit as friendly as others have said. Sadly, they had run out of home-cooked ham (the chef was boiling another one, but we couldn't wait three hours!) but the bacon and egg bap was perfect, and the chips were very good. The Derby Brewing Company Hunky Dory beer was excellent.

we stopped off after a long walk, the menu and food looked good and I wish we had ate there. The beer choice was good and offered a choice of local beers. In a nice location in the centre of the village with a pub garden and parking. I'll be back and next time I shall be eating

Stopped for a meal whilst on a weekend break . What a great choice, food was great and good value, good range of drinks and the landlord and staff were really friendly, taking an interest in us rather than just serving us. This was our first visit to the Royal Oak but cannot resist going back for the World Toe... More

We detoured to Wetton hungry and thirsty from walking the Manifold Way and chanced upon this delightful establishment. The Landlord made us feel most welcome and we were relieved to find that food is served all day ! Having enjoyed a delicious lunch we booked again for an evening meal as we were staying close by. Nothing was too much... More

Decided on this pub as it was conveniently placed on our circular walk from Ilam. Arrived at 12 on a Sunday with a good appetite, but it was rapidly satisfied with excellent food and fantastic service. All helped down with some great local real ale. Landlady and Landlord very welcoming and friendly. The place was packed by the time we... More
