Four of us stayed again on a family re-union. It has changed a little over the years, but only for the better: in cleanliness and fresh appearance. The Royal Oak represents the best of trad. hotel values. Friendly approach from a family committed to quality delivery. No boil in a bag infinite choice here. They make it all themselves; and better, there is a fixed dining time with limited choice of quality meals, yet veggies etc are fully catered for. In these times, this represents a way forward for other hotels to follow. Location, car parking and facilities for outdoor enthusiasts (drying room etc), all fine.
We will keep coming back.
