My boyfriend brought me here for the weekend and I must say it was lovely. Cannot say a wrong word about the place. We were greeted cheerfully on arrival and given tons of information so we knew exactly what we were doing and expecting. Our...More

Comfy bed - great cooked to order breakfast - Sunday Roast was top quality. Friendly staff what more could you ask for. And as a bonus the sun shone.

The rooms were dusty. The vegetable sausages were nearly cold. Service was slow and the beer was everpriced. Not as good as they like to make out.

We really enjoyed celebrating St Patrick's Day (March 17th) at the Royal Oak. The draft Guinness was great and so was the Jameson's Irish Whisky. The bar staff were all dressed up as leprechauns. It was a wonderful evening (and we are not even Irish).
