This is a little gem. The food is wonderful, the service is great and it is set up in the Bromyard Downs which is a lovely setting. Specially recommend Sunday dinner. It is served to you rather than a carvery....lovely.

Took the dog for a nice walk on Bromyard downs then piped into the Royal Oak for a bite to eat. Nice ace to sit outside and enjoy the peace. Food was ok. Nice veggie selection for my wife. Will come back no diubt

Nice pub on edge of Bromyard Downs. Lovely views and great to sit in garden on sunny day. Bit claustrophobic inside. Nice food but pricey. Easy to spend £40-£50 as a couple. Bit too dear for us poor country folk!

I go here regularly. They have very friendly and welcoming staff and the food is all home cooked. The menu is possibly the biggest menu I have ever seen with a great selection of vegetarian dishes. The puddings are also fab. Lovely cosy pub would highly recommend

I went to this pubs or lunch yesterday and had the most overpriced and disapointing meal I've had for a while. We had researched a pub in the area beforehand on tripadvisor to ensure we had a nice meal, but in this case it didn't work so I want to ensure this doesn't happen to others. This wasn't a case...

I made a sausage sandwich this morning using fresh, award winning ingredients. Price per sandwich approximately 50p. Price at the Royal Oak for the same meal was £6.50 and they used frozen catering sausages, flavourless and probably composed of more rusk than pork. Plus at this price, you don't expect to pay an additional £1 for chips. The burgers were... More

We took a coach with 46 passengers to the Royal Oak on Monday 16th March. We all had the carvery which was enjoyed by all. A three meat selection, beef, pork and turkey, plenty of vegetables, roast and boiled potatoes, gravy and a selection of sauces. We had a choice of 3 desserts, raspberry ripple cheesecake, ice cream with a... More
