Popped in for a quick lunch whilst working in the area. I didn't have high expectations, but I was to receive a very pleasant surprise. I ordered a sausage sandwich and a soft drink for £6.95 which I thought would be ordinary. However, the "Butcher's Sausage" was delicious and beautifully presented with salad, coleslaw and pot of English mustard. It... More

We called in for lunch on our way back home to Chorley after a week away in the area. I'm really glad we chose The Royal Oak. As soon as we walked in we were greeted by warm and friendly staff and landlord. The food is fantastic to say the least! I had the burger that was obviously home made.... More

We sat down and was given the menu, ordered drinks, after 40 mins I went to the bar and asked if they would take our order!! We then waited nearly an hour for food. I... More

We are staying outside Malton and drove passed the pub a few times, dropped for some food on a Tuesday night - Pie Night. There were plenty of people eating and when ordering drinks we were advised to order food as soon as possible as it would be betting busy. We ordered Chicken and Leak pie and hand cut chips,...

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

My wife and I called in for midweek lunch, our first visit to the Royal Oak. The pub is very quaint with lots of character and a beautiful beer garden at the rear. The staff are really friendly and attentive and a big plus for us is that the pub is dog friendly!! The lunchtime menu includes a range of... More
