We booked the night before for 'Pie Night'. Arrived to find our table reserved and the most friendly landlord you could hope to find. Beer was one of the best I've had - "York Brewery Guzzler" and the food was great. Homemade pie, chips and peas. Exactly as advertised. Very reasonable prices and... read more

We eat at the Royal Oak about 4 times a year and it never fails to come up trumps. It is a traditional pub nicely decorated and with just enough of that Olde Worlde feel. The landlord Ian is very friendly as are all his staff, the beers and ales are local and very good and the selection of wine... More

A very good pub with an excellent selection of local ales, some decent wine and truly good food which is also extremely good value. Ian and staff are always welcoming and friendly we go there regularly and are always impressed.

Was re-directed here from a pub down the road as they were full, so glad we were!. The staff were friendly and helpful.it has a great atmosphere and the food was fantastic. This is by far the best pub meal myself and my partner has ever had, so much so it's made me write my first review!. Fully recommend.

We were on our way to the cinema, and needed an early meal. As it happened we so enjoyed the meal, and the friendliness of the pub, that we gave the cinema a miss. Apparently they have a new chef, who is marvellous. I don't usually eat chips at all, but even I could not resist them. The only negative... More

Glad we did, in Suffolk these would been full size meals, we learned from mine host the oak had been a pub... More

Spur of the moment decision, let's eat out, always looks good from outside and inside, warm welcome from mine host, varied menu, chose shared pate starter, followed by gammon for wife and rump steak for me. No frills presentation, but both meals accompanied with well cooked chips, were very good. Yet another pub to recommend for a spur of the... More

Stopped off early Saturday evening for a meal. Initially disappointed to be told that they had had a busy day and ALL the pies (for which they are reportedly famous), and some of the specials were off, however there was still enough choice on the reduced menu. This was the only moan. From the moment you walk through the door... More
