The Royal Oak was the nearest to a self catered cottage that we rented, so we decided to go for Sunday lunch and at £14 for 3 courses it looked great value for money. We were expecting the usual pub grub but we got fantastic quality food which was attractively presented. The size of the roast was huge (it beat... More

Stopped here as we where on way to stay at a B&B nearby. Lovely pub, staff very friendly and couldn't believe the 3 course menu for £12! Lots of choice and quality and the presentation was better than some 4 or 5 star hotels I've stayed in. Keep up the good work and we will definitely return when we are... More

This has been taken over recently and we booked a last minute Fathers Day Lunch; fantastic value £12 for 3 courses and at least 5 choices on starters, puddings and 3 meats for main. The food came quickly and was lovely and hot and tasty. A high chair was available for baby. It wasn't busy but I'm guessing if they've... More

On arriving we were told we would have to wait 20-30 minutes maximum for a table, after waiting an hour! We were informed that we they had no more roast dinners (bearing in mind it was a Sunday! And only half past two in the afternoon!) but too late for us to go anywhere else, we were then told we... More

I really enjoyed my evening out with friends. the food was OK enough but not IMO truly authentic. Portions are certainly ample and all is tasty......but is missing something; not sure what. Cuisine is American BBQ. Maybe be some interesting sides would help.

The Royal Oak is owned by the Smokehouse Grill in Oswestry and offers the same fayre but without the need to climb the stairs. The Royal Oak is also a bar serving some good cask ale. The menu offers good choice, the portions are generous and the food really good. On top of that the service is good too. We... More

This Hotel has recently been taken over by new people. It has been re-decorated and changed and is extremely pleasant to eat and drink either in the bar or the restaurant. The staff seem much happier in their new environment. Excellent would recommend.
