This was our first stay in Cartmel and we booked into a room in The Royal Oak, We arrived around lunchtime and although the bar was not that busy when we arrived it still took a good 10 minutes stood at the bar before someone acknowledged we were there. After we managed to book in we were told that the... More

Another visit to the Royal Oak Inn but No Shepherds pie on the menu, very disappointed as it was the best I have ever had and was looking forward to it. But must say the fish and chips I had was very good, nice staff and good service as always. But please bring back the shepherds pie

I am so glad we were recommended to try this place! The service was excellent and the pub had a very friendly atmosphere. Despite it being very busy we did not have to wait long to be served or to receive our order. My friend and I both went for the royal oak burger, which was extremely filling but delicious... More

The sister house to the Kings Arms the team who run it have got the balance right. The royal oak offers you (and the locals) a great place to drink with some good quality pub food and a different menu to the Kings arms. The staff are constantly on the go making sure everyone is being looked after - proper... More

We had a few drinks here one day and the staff, pub and beer garden were all very nice. We returned a different day for food and we weren't impressed at all! I had burger and fries and both were obviously from the freezer! Real shame as really nice place. Will definitely return for refreshments, just not food! :(

Staying overnight in the area, we researched local eating places and decided on the Royal Oak because of the reviews. First we booked a table at the beginning of the week and on chacking the day before, found they had no booking for us. On arrival we were allocated the table by the door and near the fire - not...

Visited the Royal Oak last Sunday on a return visit home. We have eaten here once before and thoroughly enjoyed it, so thought we would pop in again. It was very busy but every single member of staff greeted us politely and the gentleman behind the bar served us with drinks promptly. There was quite a wait for a table... More
