Had a great three course Sunday lunch yesterday! Food was very tasty and staff wet attentive! It was a shame we had to wait a little bit longer for our puddings, but the wait was worth it! Haven't been to the Royal Oak before for food but I certainly won't hesitate to come again! Thank you

Popped in for a coffee early Sunday morning and it hit the spot! Nice comfy sofas and very friendly staff. Would recommend as a place to meet friends or catch up for a quick chat :)

This pub is big but is separated into 3 different rooms so it still has a cosy feel. The bar has a good selection of real ales, and there's also a costa in there if you want a decent coffee. It's the kind of pub you can take anyone, because it's smart and clean, and kid friendly too. Both times... More

We had a very pleasant lunch here and would come again, but the management needs to take a fresh look at some aspects. These may seem like niggles but why not put them right? As first time visitors, we sat in the dining room for quite a long time wondering whether someone would come to welcome us and take an... More

Very friendly staff, nothing is to much trouble. The food and cocktails are good here, or you could sit and relax with a hot chocolate or cup of tea. They have got their own car park which is very useful.

I had chicken in cheese and leek sauce with saute potatoes and perfectly cooked veg. Very nice indeed. At £13.00 was good. There was a choice of gf sarnies... More

Food quality was just about equal to the price list, nothing to write home about. I had duck with red wine reduction which reduced so much it had disappeared by the time it got to the table. Limited wine by the glass and bottle prices quite high e.g a bottle I buy in the supermarket @£8 was £30 in the... More

The menu was very limited for vegetarians. They offered larger potion of a starter but ended up filling up on bread rolls. Room okay and reception staff helpful.

This is the sort of hotel that every prosperous market town used to have - friendly. good atmosphere, adaptable. I came here recently to meet a friend for supper, and 2 of us came recently for a meeting and coffee. The barman was very friendly and made sure that we had somewhere quiet for our meeting. Right in the centre... More
