The Royal Oak is the real deal - a proper pub with genuinely friendly staff & great atmosphere, serving excellent home cooked food in enormous quantities. Maureen & her team even converted me into an ale drinker for the evening such was the quality of the beer on offer! This lovely landlady did all she could and more to make... More

We visited after reading the Trip Adviser reviews & we're not disappointed. It was the delightful landlady's birthday so everyone was in a grand mood. This is a family- run pub & it shows. The service (Amy) was very good & the food was our best meal we had in our week in this part of the country. Real value... More

Back at the Oak last night for dinner, my partner is gluten intolerant, however they will make the batter for the fish with gluten free flower if you ask them to, in my opinion it is even better than normal wheat flour, very crisp, no soggy bits, and with the very good quality fish they source amounts to the best...

A glorious spot just off the Offa's Dyke path. Our thanks to Maureen who allowed us to camp in the pub garden. The evening meal was not only colossal, but exceptionally tasty and excellent value for money. The ale alone should earn this pub a place in The Good Beer Guide; the Cambrian Gold was heavenly. Without the immense brekky... More

Having visited The Royal Oak, Treflach on many occasions either as a couple or for a birthday celebration the food has consistently been excellent. Any variations are catered for in a 'family style' atmosphere. Well done in a difficult commercial time you are forging ahead.

Our party of four had booked a table on Thursday 26th June, and on arrival we were treated warmly and efficiently and shown to our table. Drinks were ordered and brought to us. The furniture is a little quirky but it matches the ambience of the building, however although we waited a little while for our first course to arrive,... More

We accidentally discovered the Royal Oak on a Monday evening having tried several other nearby pubs who weren't serving food that day. As things turned out, it was a great choice as we had a fabulous meal and the staff were great. We'll definitely be back again soon and would highly recommend it.

we visited the royal oak this afternoon the meal couldn't have been better, I had the sea bass which was perfect, my dad had the steak and Guinness pie (he's a bit of an expert when it comes to pies) best he's ever had. The stone house beer was spot on I quaffed 4 pints, we will certainly be returning,... More

My husband and myself are regulars at this lovely little pub, we usually go on a Friday night and we are never disapointed. The choice of food on the menu is quite extensive and always very fresh. My husband had the Guinness and Steak pie with vegetables, chips and extra gravy - I had the Lemon chicken which is delicious... More
