The Royal Oak at Wetton is a CAMRA pub with a fast-changing beer menu. The food is good pub fare and the atmosphere cosy. The week we stayed in the village they hosted a theatre group which was a lot of fun. Service that night was a bit slow but did not spoil the evening.

Ate here recently whilst on holiday in the village. The food is superb good pub grub. I would recommend sausage of he day and the chicken in white wine. The garlic mushrooms are the best I have ever had. The service is fast and friendly, we arrived just as the kitchen closed on our first night and they stayed open... More

After visiting Thor's cave, we all agreed that we had earned some light refreshment and The Royal Oak beckoned: we were not disappointed as we were greeted by friendly staff and offered a superb range of local ales. Next time, we will spoil ourselves further by having a meal with our ale!

It was a rainy and chilly day. We were hungry after the hike to Thors cave and a bit of exploring around. The lady in the pub was nice enough to ask us to leave our car in the carpark even if we were only intending on the hike. They also have a small beer garden for the sunny days.... More

Great pub in a nice spot on the edge of the forest. Nice big garden, really popular on a sunny day so get here early. Really good range of cask beers behind the bar. Pub is quite small so not masses of seats indoors but outdoors is where it shines. Had an excellent crab salad and ploughmans lunches, thoroughly enjoyed... More

It may be the only pub in the village but they are lucky to have it. Ian and the staff try hard to be a welcoming pub that also tries to offer 'alternative ' entertainment Toe Wrestling!! Plays and music have all been on the calendar.

this is what can only be discribed as a very traditional pub ,,,,,,,,,,,,,the bar look like an old type of bar that you would expect to see from times gone by ,, the array of real ales are on tap and you can see the colour of the ales as they put some in jars so you can see whether... More
