We enjoyed a fabulous skittles night last night at this lovely pub to celebrate my sister's birthday. There were 22 of us from age 3 to over 60, so we opted for a buffet meal, in order to cater for all tastes. It was great. Lots of it was hot (chips and homemade quiches were particular favourites) and there was... More

My wife and myself visited th royal oak on Friday 04/04/2014 for a meal around 18:15. The place was buzzing and not a table to be had. The atmosphere was great. We got a table and ordered the food, 1 fish and chips and 1 sea bass. The sea bass was beautiful. The fish and chips was a large portion... More

My partner and i decided to visit a local pub for something to eat for her birthday. Upon waiting for half an hour for the owner to come back from the cellar to take our food (not sure why she was the only staff member capable of writing down a list) i decided to fire up the trusty Trip Advisor...

We ordered four very different meals and we all enjoyed our food. It was well cooked and well presented. We will keep coming back! Highly recommended....give it a try, you won't be disappointed.

Just sat in the pub after finishing an amazing huge meal with gorgeous home made chips. Service was excellent and the pub had a warm and friendly feel. Thank you :)

Beautifully cooked food with ample veg and potatoes, it left me full and ever so happy. Friendly staff and a lovely atmosphere for a great price. Plus my dogs were welcomed.

My partner and I have just come back from having a Sunday dinner here. What a dinner it was too. We chose trio of meats ( pork, beef and chicken) with all the trimmings and it was gorgeous. We booked the table (recommended ) on speck and we didn't have to wait too long for the food. The place was... More

We visited the Royal Oak on August Bank Holiday Monday. It wasn't busy - in fact there were three tables filled inside with a couple outside. Despite this at 13.55 we did have to wait to be served at the bar - no problem. Except at 13.59 (I kid you not) the rather abrupt lady behind the bar said that... More

Food was ordered for the group, 6 people, altogether. Two had finished main course before any other food, including some starters, had arrived. When we cancelled our starter, the manager said we hadn't booked, although place was pretty empty. He was quite rude and the cook came out and was beligerent. So we definitely will not be going there again.
