Collected Sunday roast dinner. Very easy booking system and delicious food. Highly recommended. Doing a great job to trade safely during lock down. A real treat.

During these difficult times it's good to see people innovating to keep their businesses going. The Royal Oak have introduced a takeaway menu for collection from their premises. We ordered and collected Sunday lunch which was absolutely delicious and the portions very generous. Shall be...repeating this experience soon!More

Great chill out pub with beautiful beer garden including huts and a little stream. Food is fantastic- try the day specials we’re never disappointed. Really friendly for families, couples or just to read a book.

Went for Bank Holiday lunch and the meal overall was good. The venue is taking reasonable steps to support social distancing and COVID-19 compliance. There is a nice dining are inside, plus an outside dining area if you choose, overlooking the stream. Menu was good,...and food was good in the main (lumpy gravy, though). Sadly, the service let the thing down - would have liked a second round of drinks but, with the bar closed and being ignored by the waiting staff, that was not possible. Service was also very slow, both to receive our meals and for the plates to be cleared and dessert to be offered following main course. It meant we could not stay, as we did not have another few hours to spend, so as much a loss to the venue (meant we did not spend more) as ourselves. Hopefully, the very young lad that was serving us will be back at school next week and the permanent staff will then provide a better service.More

We went on the last day of the campaign and I must say it was an absolute pleasure. The restaurant was welcoming, the staff very friendly and the food was first class. We all enjoyed a variety of starters, main and desert and left thoroughly...satisfied. At full price it’s certainly not expensive and offers quality dining at an affordable price. I’ll definitely visit again and look forward to it.More

We just spend a lovely evening at this pub and had a delicious meal. I would recommend the fish cakes and the Eaton Mess. We sat outside and the service was very good and friendly. We are both senior nurses and felt the pub managed...the Covid 19 risk very effectively. There was hand sanitiser available and the tables were spaced out to allow for social distancing. We have moved to Isleworth only very recently and we will definitely be back.More

The Royal Oak is a regular haunt for my friend and I and we’re never disappointed. We especially like the small plates as we can share a range of tasty dishes. I’m especially fond of the delicious Ice cream and love to end my meal...with 3 scoops! I’ve introduced lots of friends to The Royal Oak and they enjoy the food and ambience too.More

Cant fault the staff or food. On a really busy evening due to the Rugby international being on, the restaurant staff managed to fit our party of 4 on a table near the restaurant bar. This wasnt a problem until the Landlord was verbally berating...what I believe was either the landlady ( for her sake I hope she wasnt his wife ) or restaurant manager straight in front of us, getting right in her face on numerous occasions. This was a theme where he then seemed to have a go at just about every member of staff he could. We didn't know what his problem was but he was airing it in a totally unprofessional manner in front of us, I'd go as far as saying he was bullying all the staff, who from what we could see were all rushed off their feet. At one point he actually had a go at a customer physically directing the customer away from the restaurant bar which is for staff only. We refrained from saying anything because that would possibly only end up one way. We probably visit this pub once a year & usually stop till last orders but on this occasion decided to leave after our meal because of the Landlord, explaining to the staff why we were leaving.More

Recently popped into The Royal Oak to watch the rugby with a friend of mine who considers himself an Isleworth local. We hadn’t pre-booked a table but chose to make a last minute visit before the Ireland vs Wales game (and then lucked out on...a front row table!). I was pleasantly surprised by the good manners and knowledge of the bar staff, who actually engaged in conversation and could tell you a little bit about the menu, and the quality of the beer and food was exemplary (the Guinness was notably profound!). I would certainly recommend this pub to anyone who plans on visiting the area in future - it’s a must see!More

Dogs are welcomed in the bar, but I don't think they can go in the restaurant area. My dog is usually greeted with the offer of a free dog biscuit and a fresh bowl of water.
