Having visited the Eden Camp, we decided to eat locally. TA reviews indicated that the Royal Oak was a proper British pub, so we decided to give it a go. First impressions were good.

Called for a drink on Easter Sunday as rest of Malton was closed. Walked in, got stared at by every customer. Went to bar. No one serving. Walked back out again.

Inside the pub it feels warm and cosy. There is a real fire and a warm welcome. I would recommend this place for anyone who likes a real country pub and heartwarming food. Well done.

Nice friendly pub, staff very helpful, food very good and the price was reasonable. My only criticism was the vegetables were not in my opinion quite as well cooked as i like them to be. But I would certainly go back again for a meal and would recommend it.
