Been here a few times now - this time we sat outside in the pretty garden for lunch. I really enjoyed my dressed crab salad - it was beautifully presented - and my friend was very impressed with the chicken and black pudding dish. Great that the bar is dog friendly too. Lovely, good quality food and friendly staff -... More

We called into this pub on the way up to the Edinburgh fringe and couldn't believe how wonderful the food was. We liked it so much we called in on the off chance on the way back and had another wonderful meal too. Very handy just off the A1 too. Thoroughly recommend.

Our first visit on s Saturday evening. Our party of 4 chose off the menu and off specials board. The food was lovely, all appeared to be home cooked, and was very well presented. Early Saturday evening appeared to be very busy so I would advise booking however it was quieter later in the evening. There is big garden for... More

Well, what can I say ~ another fantastic evening at The Royal Oak. There were 17 of us in our party and there was not a single complaint from start to finish. As usual, the staff were helpful, friendly and professional. The food tasted fab and was presented in a lovely manner; the price belies the quality! We have been... 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.
