Visited on the back of other good reviews. It was cold outside and not much warmer inside. Heating wasn't on and the only other diners were at the two tables next to an inadequately fueled wood burner. Food was nothing particular and cooled off quickly. Not what we expected and couldn't recommend it on this visit.

Dear Barry550, I have been eagerly awaiting your review of the Royal Oak ever since your visit last week. The only part of your review that I could completely agree with was the fact that it was particularly cold outside on the day of your visit. Every other part I feel has been overly embellished. As you chose to sit... More

A return visit to the Royal Oak and we were not disappointed. A warm welcome from the landlord and a lovely log burner on a miserable January evening. The food was excellent and I am sure we will return again soon.

The food was of very high standard. The room and ensuite very clean and the bed was of excellent quality, very comfy and we had a very good night's sleep. A lovely, very quiet, relaxing break. Frendly, helpful staff. Would love to stay again. Good location for Bourne, Stamford, Grantham and Rutland.

We had an evening meal, homemade soup, pâté, lasagna and mushroom risotto, all lovely. Good cooked breakfast in the morning as well. A very... More

I made a nostalgic trip to Swayfield on Sunday. I was born there 68 years ago & have recently lost my mother, who was also born in Swayfield so 3 generations of my family (plus Roger the dog) decided to make the journey down for the day. My granddaughter had booked us a table at the Royal Oak but because... More
