“Dog friendly and yummy food too!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

We visted for lunch. It was empty but the welcome was lovely.
They allow dogs in the non carpeted area, which also has a roaring fire. The menu was broad with plenty of choice and specials. The food was tasty and the chunky chips were the best ever! It wasn't cheap, but it was worth every penny.

“we needed a meal!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

Nice old pub with huge fire place, stove. but spoils the ambiance by having a wide screen tv above it. Unusual aspect was that they sold Salads on a cold and wet day.

“Bad pub grub at restaurant prices”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Visited the royal oak earlier this month and spent £80 on poor food and drinks. Pity we had to pay before we tasted the food. we would have complained but after the response we got when we took back the brown soda water they passed off as coke we had no faith in a positive response, when we took the drinks back to the bar, rather than apologise the bar man tasted them! The garlic mushroom starter was out of a packet, the steak was more fat than meat and the chips were over cooked packet material. Very poor and disappointing.

Very comfortable and good food at a good price. Good selection of typical but better-than-average pub fare.
