My wife and myself visited th royal oak on Friday 04/04/2014 for a meal around 18:15. The place was buzzing and not a table to be had. The atmosphere was great. We got a table and ordered the food, 1 fish and chips and 1 sea bass. The sea bass was beautiful. The fish and chips was a large portion... More

My partner and i decided to visit a local pub for something to eat for her birthday. Upon waiting for half an hour for the owner to come back from the cellar to take our food (not sure why she was the only staff member capable of writing down a list) i decided to fire up the trusty Trip Advisor...

We ordered four very different meals and we all enjoyed our food. It was well cooked and well presented. We will keep coming back! Highly recommended....give it a try, you won't be disappointed.

Just sat in the pub after finishing an amazing huge meal with gorgeous home made chips. Service was excellent and the pub had a warm and friendly feel. Thank you :)

Beautifully cooked food with ample veg and potatoes, it left me full and ever so happy. Friendly staff and a lovely atmosphere for a great price. Plus my dogs were welcomed.

My partner and I have just come back from having a Sunday dinner here. What a dinner it was too. We chose trio of meats ( pork, beef and chicken) with all the trimmings and it was gorgeous. We booked the table (recommended ) on speck and we didn't have to wait too long for the food. The place was... More

Living about 10 miles from Long Bennington, I've decided that am going to make this my new local :) Having visited on quite a few occasions over the past few months, I find the food very reasonably priced and far superior in quality to the generic pubs that are closer to where I live! The owners are very friendly and... More

Gastro pub style food served in generous proportions..... We stumbled on this delightful oasis en-route to London and loved it so much that we purposely ensured that we had time to call again on our return journey. The food was amazingly priced, food this good should be twice the price. Lovely ambience and attentive staff. Whilst we had a meal... More
