Great service, good food

Not a spectacular gastric pub but value for money rules here. The wines are too reasonable to be true and the food is great. Not gourmet, just excellent standard fare.

Country pub about a mile out of Grange over Sands. No big shocks or surprises on the menu. Food good, portions very large. After the confit duck leg (excellent) I could make little impression on the steak pie. Desserts remain a closed book! Prices very reasonable. Well worth a visit if in the area but pace yourself...

We are local - live in the village but felt compelled to leave a review after reading some of the very unfair reviews on here! We eat here regularly and have never had a bad meal. Certainly don't agree with the review stating the food is over priced. This is by far the best eating house in the area -... More

Very good pub in an area not particularly well served with them. Attractive and comfortable with a good range of beer. Service was excellent and so was the food. No hesitation in recommending.

To be fair, it is a nice place. The food was good and the beer was excellent. But our experience was marred by the attitude of the barman, who was rude, condescending and patronising right from the word go. At the end of the meal, by which time it had become clear that we were never going to be best... More

We visited the Royal Oak for lunch today and will most definitely return and bring others too! The pub is beautifully decorated (the photos on TA do it no justice at all) and is bright with a lovely atmosphere. We were welcomed straight away with a smile and chose a table in a quiet corner. At lunch you can choose... More

We visited the Royal Oak whilst on holiday in the Lake District and chose it because of it's location in relation to where we were staying. We were a group of six adults who enjoy good food and drink. The Royal Oak suited us on all counts. The choice of food was excellent, the ingredients were locally sourced when possible... More

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.
