An excellent meal with great service. Nice welcoming staff and great atmosphere. We visited twice, once for Sunday roast and evening dinner... Both really good food. Also liked the sampler to try the ales.. Helped me find the pint which I most enjoyed

Very impressive for what you'd normally expect in a pub.... More

We were camping in the area for the weekend and went here for tea on the first night we liked it so much we went back the day after! The food was lovely and tasty, the service was good, efficient and friendly. The atmosphere was great and the garden at the back is massive with lots of tables and chairs.... More

I've been here twice now and both times were as good as each other! The customer service is brilliant, the lasagne is to die for and the atmosphere is lovely. Keep up the good work, I will definitely be returning soon!

Just brought my wife and children to eat at the royal oak, the food was brilliant and the service is second to none. Jonathan was brilliant and made an effort with the kids. Will be coming again.

Nice food at reasonable price. Good service. Did not like music being played to loudly Plenty of character internally especially later in day. Good beer garden, great location
