An absolute gem

The two dinners we had at the Royal Oak were absolutely delicious. The staff accommodated an unusual request from my husband with good humour. If we had been in Lindale longer we would certainly had another meal at the Royal Oak.

The choice of food is excellent and the wine list is quite extensive for a pub. The chef knows how to cook the individual meats on a mixed grill. Steak cooked medium rare, as ordered and all the other meats were cooked to perfection.

This is a gastro pub serving top British food. We enjoyed the steak and ale pie and lamb henry. If you are staying locally this is a good choice for a meal.

After reading the reviews we were looking forward to eating here. Quite disappointed to say the least. The place was quite busy with mainly over 60's clientele. Most popular dish we heard ordered was gammon and chips. I imagine as it was the cheapest thing they make. I had cod with scallops in a butter sauce. Cod was ok but... More

I was toying with several pubs in the area but am so pleased I chose this one! Lovely interior, friendly and welcoming staff and delicious food and wine - what more could you want? My husband and I both had the baked brie with red onion marmalade to start with which was very more-ish. I had a lovely steak pie,... More

Called in for lunch - dogs welcome. I had the Meat Feast Pizza and my wife the lamb. Both were excellent and served by very friendly staff, fairly quickly considering the place was full. Also good for families.

This is one of our favourite restaurants to visit when we are in the Lake District. We have now visited The Royal Oak 4 times and have never been let down. The staff make you feel so welcome, the food is amazing, and it is reasonably priced compared to other pub restaurants near by. This is a Robinson pub and... More

Called in for lunch, smallish village pub split into three areas. Great Robinsons beer, and excellent food. Would certainly recommend. Excellent food at the right price.
