“Excellence in eydon”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

We visited last Tuesday on a snowy night. A very warm welcome with smiling faces behind the bar. The restaurant area was delightful and the staff especially Bix could not do enough to make our meal memorable. Warm breads baked on site.
All four of us enjoyed our meal choices from steak and pork to huge plaice. Totally recommend you try it.
Bit tucked away but close to national trust property canons ashby.

“Lovely Local”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

This was our local for a while and we used to drink and eat here quite often. The staff are great and always friendly. The food can be a little pricey but it is top class so you get what you pay for. It is a lovely setting and there is always a good atmosphere there.

“Tempts us away from our home cooked sunday roast most weeks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

Wonderful staff, fantastic food and a welcoming atmosphere. Just before putting on our Sunday roast, we always ask the question - shall we go to the Royal Oak. Having recently moved to the area its currently a 50:50 result

“A fantastic meal and wonderful service and ambience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

This was our first visit to the Royal Oak. This is a country pub just as you would imagine you dream country pub. A building full of character and staff who are welcoming with a smile and very friendly. We went as a party of 6 for a very good friends birthday. The food and service was truly superb. There is a fine selection of real ales, and good wine selection and the meals we had were so good, we can't wait to find another reason to go back. The Thai Green Curry was the best we have had. Better than in any Thai restaurant we have ever been.
Do we recommend this pub - whole heartedly!

“A rural gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012 via mobile

After visiting a nearby wedding venue we took advice and booked a table at this popular location. Proved to be a good tip as food, beer and ambience supported recommendation in Good Pub Guide. Assiette of lamb mmm.
