“Excellent pub for food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013 via mobile

We were 2 families-comprising of 5 adults, 4 children and one dog- From the moment we walked into the royal oak we were greeted with a lovely glowing fire and a warm welcome from the staff. The food was delicious and the best homemade soup we have tasted. The staff were very attentive, obliging and efficient. Would highly recommend anyone to visit the royal oak if you are in Cartmel. The manageress was above and beyond her role, totally amazing thank you for making our first visit so memorable.

“''Great pub, lovely staff''”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

We visit cartmel a lot ,since the royal oak has been taken over by karen and graham from the kings arms, the atmosphere in the village is brill. Everyone mixers in . The staff are very pleasant and carnt do enough for you. They have know done the rooms up to a very high standard, we had the pleasure of being the first to stay their over christmas, beds comfy, shower great, tea and coffee in your room. A bit noisey when the dustbin-men came in the morning. Went down in the morning to a warm log fire where we had breakfast which was made by the manager Aaron who has done an excellent job of the rooms. His staff are brilliant . we will be visiting again and again and let our friends know . karen amanda graham and aaron your doing a excellent job keep it up

“Under New Management”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

The Royal Oak is now under new management and what can I say. The staff are excellant especially Amanda who cannot do enough for you. The atomosphere in this lovely old pub is great, with log fire etc and the food is very good and probably the best value for money in Cartmel. I visit Cartmel at least once a month so I think I have a good insight on the place.I would highly recommend you try the Royal Oak
