We were caught in a storm so couldn't eat al fresco at our campsite. All other places in the area seemed a bit too pricey so we decided to take our chances with the Royal Oak. Well we were very pleasantly surprised. This is a...More

The Royal Oak is a thriving village pub offering great food and drinks in a warm friendly atmosphere. It has everything you could hope for – including a leafy beer garden, pool table and roaring fires in winter – plus More a few surprises, such as eclectic local artwork and monthly acoustic jam sessions.The Royal Oak, in the pretty South Hams village of Malborough, is just a short drive from Kingsbridge, Hope Cove and Salcombe.The Oak is open for dinner every day except Sundays. On Sundays we serve lunch from 1pm (booking definitely advisable). The dinner menu is changed daily. Our chef, Kieran Tobin, uses fresh ingredients sourced from leading local independent suppliers, including meat from top butchers Lidstones of Kingsbridge. We also have traditional bar snacks.The Royal Oak has recently been refurbished and now, possibly for the first time in its 400 year history, we are pleased to be able to offer comfortable accommodation for visitors to this glorious corner of Devon.Wake up refreshed for a day of walking on the beach, relaxing, sightseeing, a trip to Salcombe or whatever takes your fancy.
