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.

We have eaten here twice in the past week. This is a great village pub with good atmosphere and excellent food. The freshly dressed crab was one of the best I have ever been served. Can also recommend the ham eggs and real home made chips. We have booked again for Sunday lunch today so I guess that's a real... More

We had an evening meal here and the food was excellent and the service was friendly and courteous. My only criticism was that the service was a little slow, as it took almost an hour for our four main courses to arrive at our table. However, all the dishes were freshly prepared and delicious, so the food was certainly worth... More

It wasn't expensive and all the roasts and the vegetables-especially the potatoes- were absolutely delicious.I have no hesitation in recommending the Royal Oak at Long... More

Looking for somewhere for lunch and discovered this real gem. Beautiful interior, welcoming staff and really imaginatively presented & delicious food. This was a value for money meal. We will certainly come back next time we come to the Newark area. Thank you! Jen & Rob
