“A very warm welcome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2013

After a setting off on a chilly but sunny late november morning on foot at 10:00 am from the high corner inn we made it to the Royal Oak at just after 11:30. Feet tired and cold faces we stepped into a warm open fire and an even warmer greeting from behind the bar. A pint of rich warming ale was needed and 'the devils backbone'' provided this in being a dark full bodied porter and an aspell was the wifes tipple. On scanning the locally sourced menu my wife plumped for the smoked trout pate and for me it had to be the Ham and Barley broth, both with home baked granary bread. The ale, food and service was 100% and I would recommend this local country pub to everyone, but as it was packed solid by 13:00 pm I think everyone already knows. Thankyou and see you very soon.

“Perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

We visit this pub quite often, its a proper pub with excellent food and beer, a large garden, lovely location and some very good walks nearby. Staff are friendly and helpful, food is served very quickly even when they are busy which is most of the time. You may have to share a table with others but that adds to the charm here. A must not miss if you are visiting the area.

“Get there early for lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

Must be the smallest pub we have ever seen but they still churn out a decent light lunch meal. Absolutely charming. Very popular and limited seating inside.
