Already posted a review on 18th August but it appears this has since been removed. Food and service very poor. Food provided not as advertised. Overcooked, bad presentation. Lamp shank ok but only a child's portion

We wanted somewhere nice to stay en route home from a wonderful holiday in Scotland. I wish we hadn't bothered. This is a pub. There is no reception and you have to compete with the locals at the bar to book in. I had made sure before we made the booking that dogs were welcome which I was assured was... More

This is always a difficult one for us when guests turn up without informing us they are bringing dogs and this problem becomes more difficult when they bring two very large dogs unannounced as these guest did. We accept they arrived at a busy time when the pub was very full and we don't have a reception which most customers... More

We stayed two nights dbb with secret escapes. Had a great time rooms lovely, food fantastic, staff efficient and friendly. The only negative was the noise from the road as it is on a very busy road with noise from very early. Obviously there is nothing they can do about that so I recommend you take earplugs and you will... More

My partner and I booked into this hotel for the evening on an offer from Secret Escapes. Included in the £99, was a 3-course dinner and B&B. We went for dinner and made our choices from the menu - I opted for the cauliflower soup (which was delicious) and the lamb shank served on a 'bed of mash', but when... More

We had a one night stay with dinner and full English breakfast in this lovely pub. There was plenty of parking on the street. Staff were warm friendly and welcoming, and the rooms are comfortable and welcoming. Although we do not have a dog I noted that as our room opened onto the garden there was also a sign welcoming...

We visited the area recently and after discovering this venue on our first day repeated the experience due to its location and delicious food. It was always very busy and although service was fast and efficient it lacked a warm welcome and friendly interaction.

This was our second visit to the Royal Oak Appleby and we were just as pleased with our stay this time as the last. The staff were very welcoming, the room had everything you might need and was very clean. Loved seeing Winston the Bear sitting on the bed when we arrived! We had an evening meal in the bar... More

My family and I stopped here for one night on route to the Highlands of Scotland, we arrived to a warm welcome and shown to our family room. Our room was lovely and clean with a separate dressing room which made the room feel big and spacious. The food was also very good and they even had a doggie menu... More

We checked in for one night and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We were in room 4 which was well appointed and opened directly onto the pleasant garden. Good wi fi and some nice touches with tea coffee and biscuits on arrival plus a lovely bear to adopt. Good selection of beers including Hawkshead and a heated outside area with sky... More

Really nice pub. Good quality food and reasonably priced, not very spacious if you have children but children are catered for. Pleasant meal and friendly staff. Clean and nice decor. Would definitely go back maybe without children next time. I had the lasagne, and was lovely. All local meats/cheeses which is a lovely touch
