We spent a week in the lakes and actually ate here twice. This was because the food was so good and it was such a nice atmosphere. The staff were great with our dog and when we called in during the day they came out and fed her fresh ham from the kitchen. The food was excellent and they made... More

This pub is suitable for everyone, it is a traditional looking pub and has a lovely sized beer garden. We ate here many times during our stay in cartmel and the food was great... More

Had a really great evening meal here with family. The " Cheeky Pig" burger was to die for. Really enjoyed our 1st visit here. Definitely worth another visit. Been to the lakes on a number of occasions but this is 1st time in the West lakes. Very sociable staff and good choice of beers.

Just visited the Royal Oak today. We sat in the beer garden, which was very pleasant. The pub was busy but our order was served quickly and the food was spot on and big portions. The only thing if you are tall mind your head! The ceilings are quite low!

I'll try and keep this brief as I was always taught if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all but I feel I need to go into some detail about our recent experience... I arrived with 5 other family members to celebrate my mother's birthday on a quiet Monday evening. We were seated quickly and... More
