Our annual trip to Aberaeron wouldn't be complete without a visit to the Royal Oak. On a plus side the beer is reasonably priced unlike most of the other pubs in Aberaeron. The surroundings are nice with lots of memorabilia all over the walls. Hours could be spent just looking at all the interesting local history. See you next year.

Was invited by friends for a celebratory birthday meal. Three of us had curry which was basically hunt the chicken in the gloop. Awful. The fourth had sirloin steak. Ordered medium rare. Arrived with the texture of the sole of a shoe on a cold plate. Too embarrassing to complain as we were being treated but the worst dining experience... More

29 of us (adults & children) descended on the pub to watch the football only to find that they didn't have BT Sport. I managed to get it on my mobile so the day was saved for the die hard fans. The bar is lovely with lots of rugby memorabilia on the walls, the staff were friendly albeit a bit... More

The royal Oak sports a restaurant if wish the formal or for a more chilled evening bar food. We always choice the bar after a busy day out and about just good food and friendly faces required, both are delivered well. I've been many a time to the welcoming place food is always what you remembered from last visit, from... More

Typical pub food with good portions. Helpful staff, but food can take some time to be served when a little busy. Reasonably priced house wine (Jack Rabbit @ £10.50p).

We always visit the Royal Oak when visiting Aberaron and we ate here twice during the May half-term week. On both occassions we were NOT disappointed. The food was excellent and the portions were big. The prices are comparable to other pubs in the area. The decor is quite old fashioned and could do with an update but the atmosphere... More
