After another change of owner/management (no recent), this local pub has been transformed into a most pleasant eating venue. Welcoming and good service, good food, and sensibly priced.

Superb value groupon deal, easy to find in a quiet village. Friendly welcome from the manager who showed us the room/ deal. The accomodation is very pleasant, clean and spacious with a decent shower, a bigger tv would be nice but hey not a big deal. Evening meal was very good with fresh homemade food, the fish pie was superb.... More

We met up with family here as it was in a great location for us location and had already received good reviews. The reviews were not wrong and our visit did not dissapoint.

I dined here alone for Sunday lunch and felt very comfortable. There is a choice between bar-type eating and restaurant with full cloths, napkins, etc. . I ate in the bar and found it very comfortable and cosy. The menu was wide-ranging and reasonably priced. The food was served quickly, was hot and well-presented with good-sized portions. I noticed that... More

Called in at the Royal Oak for dinner last week, had a lovely meal in what we saw as a friendly and welcoming pub, with excellent value food. Its only a couple of miles off the A1 and is well worth a visit.
