Sunday lunch after a walk

Popped in after a walk in the Peaks with the children on a Sunday. The staff were good and were able to squeeze us in for lunch despite it being very busy. Good lunch all round.

I had lunch here on Sunday 20th June with 9 friends. The roast was either beef or chicken. I asked if the beef was rare, it wasn't and I think it was pre-packed slices. I had the chicken, it was OK. The vegetables were very bland. I wouldn't recommend. Three of the party had the nut roast. They said it... More

We were a big party who visited for drinks and food. Staff were very friendly and accommodating despite it being busy at first. Food excellent, service excellent and the local brew tzara was also great. Highly recommended!

Very friendly Pub. One can tell that they are trying very hard to make a success of The Royal Oak. Regular choice of real ales served in good condition. Food good value, a mixture of homemade ( the nut loaf) very good quality ham, and pre prepared bought in dishes like plaice and scampi. That's sensible to maintain quality in... More

We stayed in Wetton for 3 nights, visiting the Royal Oak on two evenings. The landlord, Ian, was very friendly and welcoming, as were all the staff. The beef stew was of very high quality and the vegetable soup superb. There were local ales on tap, including the excellent Whim Hartington from a few miles up the road. Ian took... More

I work with Secret Hills Walking Holidays and run weekend walks in the Peak District and The Royal Oak is always on my list as a lunch-time pub stop. Food and service is always second to none. It's such a friendly pub too - landlord and staff can't do enough to help.

I visited the Royal Oak as I had been told of the pub's good name but never experienced it for myself. Upon arriving I was met by a very friendly welcome from the locals and staff alike, after looking at the choice of beers (of which there was a good selection) my beer was very well presented and in excellent...

Nice place. They let us park the car so we could walk up to Thor s cave. Once back we had nice filter coffee with sandwiches and chips. Menu is simple. No fuss. Relaxing place. Use of the beer garden on a sunny day would be good. Recommend it to everyone. Drop in after an exhaustive trek or walk !

Cycled 50 miles round trip to visit this quintessentially English pub. Wow! Ordered a superb beef casserole. Enjoyed a couple of pints of Sir Phillip. Very cycle friendly pub. One of the best!!!
