We travelled and met family for a catch up at the Royal Oak and what a fantastic place it was. The rooms were spacious and well organised with amazing tea and coffee making facilities and large bathrooms. We dined at the hotel for dinner and all loved the food and great service. In the morning the breakfast was lovely with... More

I first stayed here 20 years ago. The hotel is tucked away in a tiny village, so if you want to get away it is perfect. If you like quality sleep, this is the perfect location with highest quality Egyptian cotton bedding. Breakfast was great. Only downside was temperature control on the shower.

Our son chose to take us to the Royal Oak for my belated Birthday treat. The menus were reasonably extensive with a wide choice of different foods. The service was prompt, and the chosen dishes well cooked and presented. In short, a somewhat different type of lunch in a truly historic Pub. Will certainly go there again - for lunch... More

Stopped for lunch a couple of weeks ago with a friend. The pub is in a lovely setting and is beautifully furnished. There's a little dog that wanders around which some might find annoying but had no problem with this little guy. His eyes do force you to give away a few chips though. The staff were friendly, and most... More

The Royal Oak is a lovely pub, hotel and restaurant in Yattendon. The staff are friendly and welcoming. However, I do think that some of the meals are way overpriced for what you get. Several of our friends ordered the Thermidor scallops as a starter. The three scallops were so small. We wondered had the chef actually halved them or... More

We just popped in for a light bite while passing but were led astray. Cheerful staff settled us at a table by a log fire and all our good intentions melted away. One of those menus where you could happily chose any of the items and would be tempted to have all of them. but when you visit, whatever you... More

We arrived as a family for lunch without a reservation and were made most welcome. We sat in the garden, as the weather was surprisingly warm for October. The food was good. Dan, who greeted us and brought our drinks, was fun and has an excellent sense of humour. Definitely a people person. One of the other staff (possibly the... More

Our room 'Churchill', mold on the ceiling above the toilet, toilet handle very difficult to use, shower head lime scaled and tiny, water very slow from sink taps. Mattress was thin and hard.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A stunning pub with 10 rooms nestled in the picturesque countryside of West Berkshire, where the pace of life is just that little bit slower. Simple, unfussy, Michelin rated food, ten luxurious bedrooms, award winning real ales, roaring log fires and a quite beautiful walled beer garden await, all within easy access of Newbury, Reading, Heathrow and the M4. We are child friendly, dog friendly and accessible to all. We do hope you love the place as much as we do, and hope you will come and visit us very soon ... more   less
