A beautiful looking pub with lots of great decorative features. Unfortunately despite at least 8 other diners being visible we were told that the kitchen was closed because they 'had run out of food'! With an extensive menu (clearly not made up of all fresh ingredients) this was difficult to believe, and as the comment was overheard immediately before that... More

The food was good and freshly cooked and the service was quick and friendly. There was a lovely mix of locals and tourists and a great atmosphere. The only drawback was no fridge... More

My wife and I stopped here for dinner on our way to Pickering. The staff were friendly & accommodating and the pub had a good beer selection. I was recommended a local porter that was lovely. We both had sausage sandwiches from the lunch menu that were very tasty. Would definitely go there again.

On a day out to Malton we called into the Royal Oak having seen good reviews on Tripadvisor. We arrived at about 12.30 pm and ordered drinks whilst we studied the extensive menu. I chose the Gammon, chips, salad etc which was brilliant. As a 70 year old I can say that I have consumed some gammon in my time... More

Lovely cosy pub with friendly staff & tasty food. We had the Hunters Chicken which was delicious - a generous sized meal, beautifully cooked & delivered roasting hot to the table. This place has a really nice atmosphere & we will be visiting again.
