The food was delicious as always. The staff are always friendly and willing to help. They will even change items on he menu if possible. We are very blessed that this is our local, just a few steps from home.

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.

Parking is limited but there is ample space to park up on the main road and a village hall carpark directly opposite. The pub was... More

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
