We were looking for an early dinner and decided on here based on local gossip. On entering we realised it was not what it seemed - no lights switched on yet , no candles , decor very dark , as well as the furniture , staff dressed in black- all a bit gloomy ! I chose the curry , why... More

We popped into the Royal Oak on Sunday to take advantage of the summer sunshine and huge beer garden... we weren't disappointed. There were 6 of us, and despite it being busy we found a table outside and were able to enjoy the atmosphere.. it was a 1940s/50s theme day, with a live band, old school disco, and fayre style...

Stayed in Cartmel over a busy Race weekend & visited the Royal Oak a few times over the weekend. Really nice beer garden at the back of the Pub. Cracking ribs & burgers from the Pub Classic's menu.

The place was busy even though we had dinner on a Wednesday evening at 6:30pm. Food was good and abundant. Service was relatively quick and friendly.

Had a nice lunch sat in the garden by the river. Good service but food fairly expensive - £7+ for a sandwich.

Popped in to the Royal Oak for some drinks on a random jaunt out for a few beers in Cartmel and decided to order some food. There were 4 of us and as we were there for the beer more than anything we didn't fancy anything heavy. We opted for the sharer platter, loaded potato skins and some chips to... More

We hadn't been to the Royal Oak for about a year and my husband and I were pleasantly surprised with the improvements that seem to have been made. A seemingly smaller menu offering a good selection of pub meals - the food that we ordered was well presented and tasty. The biggest improvement though is the beer garden, really well... More

Well done to whoever recruits here. All the staff are so efficient and friendly with great sense of humour. We have had both lunch and tea here today and both meals great. Beer garden is excellent.

I will start by saying we didn't eat here but the food looked lovely and big portions too a few people came in looked at menu and said too pricey I don't think so as the other pubs were overpriced food wise they were all about the same ... The outdoor area at the back is so lovely you could... More

we had a very good lunch in the well laid out beer garden on a lovely sunny day. The service was good and the steak sandwich very tasty
