Worth a Visit

Made a reservation at the Royal Oak for a Saturday night meal and wasn't disappointed. Four of us drove out to Long Bennington and the pub was easy to find, situated on the main road. Parking is limited but there is ample space to park up on the main road and a village hall carpark directly... read more

We met some family here for lunch one Thursday after reading reviews. We had Chicken & Mushroom Pie which was horrible - full of sweet corn & gravy with very little chicken & mushroom and puffed pastry that collapsed to nothing. Just not worth the price at all. Restaurant was empty for the whole time we were there, no atmosphere... More

Made a reservation for a Sunday Lunch, party of five. Staff were lovely. Pub is nice. But the roast was only average unfortunately with yorkshires like shoe leather.

Stumbled across (not literally as it was only 2.30pm) The Royal Oak en-route back from an event at Newark. What a great find. Welcoming staff, fantastic service, excellent food and drink, lovely atmosphere. As it was a Sunday, the 3 of us opted for the roast, all of which was brilliant (mine especially as it was the Trio of meat... More

Three seniors booked for a mid-week lunch at this charming traditional local pub. The welcome was very warm, and the whole pub has a lovely traditional feel to it, lots of interest and beautifully kept. The food served was excellent and the 'Specials Board' certainly offered something a bit different. Service was first class, even down to fresh water being... More

Jake (the landlord) and his staff always on hand with a warm welcome. Nothing too much trouble for them. Food is always excellent and also a good choice of Specials to be had. This is a place not to be missed.
