Very friendly welcome, helpful and friendly staff and great service, nothing too much trouble. Food in the restaurant lovely and very reasonably priced. My gluten free diet was catered for without fuss and with loads of options - something I'm not used to! The breakfast was so good and was included in the price, set us up for the day.

Stayed here with my wife for just for 1 night on our way to Carlisle for a footy match. We had a very friendly welcome on our arrival and our room in the adjoining annex had everything we needed for a comfortable nights stay. The room was large with velux windows being in the eaves of what was probably an... More

We stayed here for one night before departing on a 2 day cycle tour of the Peak District. Friendly welcome and nice atmosphere in the pub. Clean and tidy rooms above the pub, but the en-suite to our twin room was looking a bit tired and in need of updating. We ate here and were pleasantly surprised ow good our... More

Stayed two nights to celebrate a birthday. From arrival to departure the staff went out of their way to meet our every need in a relaxed and friendly way. We had a large room over the function room annex close to the main building, It was comfortable and well equipped. The bathroom had restricted headroom which allowed only a hand-held... More

Spent a fantastic 3 nights at the royal Oak. The staff can't do enough to help and nothing is too much trouble. The food is fantastic and we could have eaten everything on the menu hence the reason we didn't even look for other pubs etc for our evening meal. Dog friendly..what more could you want?

We had a great time here, the food was excellent, the rooms comfy. The staff here are very friendly and helpful especially Paul who was an excellent host and nothing was to much trouble. This made a good base for the Peak District.

This is something of a hidden gem so don't tell anyone else about this review!! We stayed for one night. The room was comfortable and well appointed. It wasn't perfect but we were in the pub itself rather than the converted stables. Dinner was wonderful. The menu has lots of variety. Each meal offers interest. I had venison. My partner... More

We had eaten here last year and on the basis of that decided to stay overnight on our way to visit relatives. We were not disappointed. The Royal Oak is a friendly pub with clean and comfortable accommodation, and (most important for us) excellent food. Our room was in a block adjacent to the main building (old stables?) and had...
