Had a meal there with my wife. I cannot fault the staff or the pub at all. However the caramelised onions in the gravy with the sausage were far too sweet and consistency was far too thick. It spoilt the whole meal as it was too much sugar by far. It meant you couldn't taste the herbs and spices in... More

Visited on a Friday in November. Reasonably busy and in busier times of year booking essential. Good variety on menu, service excellent, food quality good. No complaints and overall better than we expected.

Two of us had the duck which was beautifully cooked and tasted amazing with a beautiful orange sauce. Two had the sirloin steak. The steak was lovely, we had both... More

Inspite of a number of good reviews from previous guests at our accommodation, our hosts and ourselves were not bowled over by our dining experience at the Royal Oak. The food was average, the fish being not particularly well cooked, and the service slow: We weren't in a hurry so it really didn't matter too much but one just wonders... More

We called in tonight, without booking, for food. Excellent welcome and they found us a table although advised it would have to be vacated by 8pm. This gave us 2 hours to have a family meal. They even had puzzles/colouring for our 6 year old daughter to keep busy! Her meal was the kid's gammon steak and pineapple. Superb and... More

We had a lovely meal in very friendly surroundings in this busy pub/restaurant. The food was great, and so filling we only managed two courses. A great evening.

Had a fantastic delicious meal here having been recommended from a friend. All the dishes we chose were perfectly cooked and nicely presented. The menu is select with additions of some fantastic specials which seemed to follow the season. Something for everyone. Portion sizes were good and not over facing, leaving room for more. There was a welcoming atmosphere, lovely... More
