Fabulous food beautifully presented. Friendly and attentive staff. Not cheap but worth it. Felt comfortably satisfied rather than overfull as is often the norm!

Both courses we had were sublime. Great food, excellent portions and very filling. Started with the lovely tapas sharer which had one of my favourite cheese on (Halloumi!) and then finished with Monkfish (which I'd never normally pick!) Great stuff, will go again.

Often go here because gluten free cooking isn't a problem for them. 6 of us went on Sunday for my birthday lunch - we ordered 3 sharing platters and we all loved it - lots of meat (beef, lamb and pork) huge yorkshire, real roast potatoes and loads of veg, all cooked to perfection and served with a smile -...

Booked table for Saturday evening and arrived to learn that the car park was full due to a wedding party taking place in a marquis in the grounds of this pub. We presumed that the menu would be restricted and service rather slow as a result but happily we were wrong. The full menu was on offer and the service... More

Got to say very impressive meal at the Royal Oak great steak, and a pretty impressive Tapas starter from a food perspective would defiantly recommend coming here, ambience is a tad underwhelming but overall well worth a trip!

Yep, still noisy but did not fail to deliver. Welcoming greeting at the bar, delicious wine, very good food full of flavour and a great night with my friend. A good girlie catch up suited the place, similarly it us! My 3rd vist recently, well the past 3-4 months and yes, I would go again .

This was our first visit to the Royal Oak and overall I rate it an excellent place to dine. The service was brilliant and the food was delicious. I had the steak and ale pie which was served with chunky chips which I struggled to eat as to my surprise the portions were quite generous. The food is of high... More

The choice of food was brilliant and the atmosphere was lovely. The food was lacking in substance and my pork was tough. All in all it was an ok meal but there was quite a few areas which could be improved. There was potential for an excellent meal but it failed to deliver. I would however eat here again

Despite being early, this place was already busy; with both diners and drinkers. Picking from the A La Carte, there were enough options for it to be a proper 'deliberation'before final options were chosen! Our choices proved rich and flavoursome, too much so for the hubby who had the Steak & Ale pie but satisfying my desire for something a... More

Had a meal in the restaurant on a Friday night. really enjoyed the food the Chef knows what he is doing. Find it difficult to find somewhere decent to eat in this area so will definitely be back. The restaurant area is in a room off to the bar, however did notice food tables at the end of the bar... More
