Very good . value for money . Amazing choice of Vegetables & Potatoes . Whilst plenty of Turkey ,Pork & Beef on your Plate the Meat lacked in flavour , surprisingly i would suspect the method of cooking for larger quantities may have something to do with it & a possible fear of any upset tummies... read more

Firstly, I must say that the young lady who appeared to do everything while we were there, did her very best. Obviously the management did not expect to be as busy as they were on the Friday after New Year. Four of us eat together every month, ringing the changes and very rarely going to the same place twice. This... More

Went here on Boxing Day after a lovely walk on the Bromyard downs. A traditional pub with good real ales on offer. The menu was varied and provided a good enough choice for our table of ten. A number of us had the fish pie, which proved to be a really good choice, well cooked and very tasty, the service... More

Had lunch here with friends (28th). Service was excellent, very pleasant and amenable. The menu was quite extensive (often a warning sign?) however the food was to a very good standard and we all enjoyed our meals...and reasonably priced to boot. Thanks for a lovely afternoon Royal Oak!

We popped in for a family/friends evening meal, the staff were brilliant, the food was homemade, fresh and hot, the puddings were to die for! Lovely old fashioned pub with open fire, not many pubs left like this, we will be back many times for sure! Lots of vegi meals available too! Only 1 thing we would of liked to... More

My husband knew of this eatery and as we were nearby we decided to go there for lunch. A really lovely welcome, great choice of beers and a really wonderful menu, certainly something for everyone and good specials on offer. Our meals were excellent and the staff on duty were so friendly that we felt right at home. We will... More

A cycling weekend around Malvern & Bromyard we stumbled on/in to The Royal Oak,as it was late,on a Friday evening,we did not have high expectations,it was so good,thank you Alex, we dined again on Saturday evening, then complemented our weekend...

Visited with family & friends, would highly recommend. We all choose Sunday roasts - delicious home cooked food & good portions. If you have room for desert the chocolate sin cake is a must!

Had two night away for a bit of a break and ended up going to this place two nights running. Good food at reasonable prices and really friendly staff. Would recommend The Royal Oak.

Just had a very good family get-together in the Royal Oak. My first visit. Very impressed with service, quality of food and price. I eat out a lot so not easy to please! Catering for groups yet giving the same level of service as if an individual customer is not easy, so hats off to the very professional staff.
