We headed to the Royal Oak a little worse for wear on the evening after a rather heavy first night of a stag-do. We were made very welcome, by the friendly landlord and staff and ate good, basic, traditional pub food and enjoyed their excellent selection of well kept beers. There was great live music too. A proper pub.

Nice olde worlde pub with real ales. Called for Sunday lunch. At £10 per head you expect a full beef lunch with accompaniments and that's what the table next to us had! But not us and not the table the table on the other side. We ordered the same meal and it came without Yorkshire puddings. When queried we were... More

We happened upon the Royal Oak while planning a walk in the area, so we decided to pop in for lunchtime refreshment. The pub itself is everything you'd want in a typical countryside establishment, backed up with friendly service and good real ales. We both ordered lasagne, chips and salad and didn't have to wait too long for our order... More

This was the after race meeting point for the Staffs Moorlands Wetton Fell race. The pub is traditional and hasn't tried to modernise itself to suit the bistro set. To me it suited the location but it might not suit some. The race had been tough and I hadn't eaten beforehand. I ordered a chicken and stuffing sandwich with chips... More

Prawn sandwich, bowl of chips, J2o and soda for £12.75. Food very average. Sat in the garden. Food brought out but no cutlery, napkin or condiments offered. Not impressed I am afraid.

I visited the pub for the Toe Wrestling with a large group of friends. The food was great, proper pub food. The kids menu is great too. We had a dog with us and she was made very welcome, given dog biscuits and a bowl of water. The village is beautiful too. We will definitely be back soon.

An amazing night, a lovely tea in the pub first then a performance outdoors by the Pantaloons. Delighted to see Ian and Louisa are promoting arts in this already thriving pub. A great atmosphere, so much happening. We thoroughly recommend it. Looking forward to going back for the next show.

Thank Neephus
