Weekend Break in The Peak District

We were on a Weekend break in The Peak District and staying right next door (50 yards) in a superb B&B, The Old Vicarage in Wetton. The Royal Oak is a superb small pub serving very good food. Not a really great choice but this is very much a case of very good quality food against quantity. The... read more

Travelled from Manchester city centre for lunch as I had read great reviews about it. The food was fantastic, the staff were very friendly, and the pub itself was very comfortable and cosy. Would definitely recommend it, and I'll be going again the next time I'm in the Peak District!

We went in the Royal Oak nearly every day for a week and it is a fabulous place, with very nice staff and landlord, wonderful food and altogether a great atmosphere. It was lovely being able to take the dogs and our Siamese cat, who thinks he's a dog, in while we had a meal.

We arrived at the end of an exceptionally busy day (bank holiday sunday), we were starving and in need of a drink. The landlord and his team had been so busy but the pub was incredibly tidy and we got a lovely table with comfortable seats (much appreciated after a day out walking), hot food and cold drinks were served...

Used this pub many times before, but on this occasion I was leading walk with 14 walkers. The landlord, Ian, reserved a room for us with a roaring fire, excellent bar snacks and good choice of locally brewed real ales. Pleasant, hospitable staff. This pub is a gem. Unspoilt and in a beautiful part of Derbyshire. We shall be back

I had a meal on Monday 4th May 2015 with my partner. The welcome was warm and the owner Ian was very good and interesting to talk to. The food was very nice and priced very reasonably. The atmosphere was nice and I thoroughly enjoyed my visit and would certainly go again. Thanks for a nice night

We arrived without a booking on the busiest part of bank holiday and they fitted us in with great good grace, and proceeded to deliver the most amazing friendly service. Absolutely lovely people, and the food was great value. Best sticky toffee pudding I've ever had!

I visited The Royal Oak in Wetton in April 2015 (think it was the 21st or 22nd) with my husband during a short stay in the Peak District. It was good from the moment we pulled up in the car to be greeted by a blackboard clearly marked "dogs welcome" - what a pleasure not to have to go in... More

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
