We stayed at the Royal Oak for one night as a stopover driving from Scotland to East Anglia. What a lovely place Ripon is, we shall definitely return there in due course. The Royal Oak is primarily a pub but its rooms are excellent value and of a high standard. Ours was very clean, nicely decorated and comfortable. We had requested a Cathedral view and we got one, which was nice. We were not disturbed by pub noise at all, and there is good security for guests between the pub and the bedrooms. Parking is extremely limited but it is possible to park very close at a reasonable cost so this was not a problem. We opted for dinner in the hotel and did not regret it one bit. The food was excellent and was beautifully presented as was breakfast the following morning. Service was first class and all the staff were friendly and very helpful. Highly recommended, we wished we could have stayed for longer.
