Under new management the menu is much better priced. The locals are eating there again, which adds to the atmosphere. A superbly cooked steak and chips, with copious wine for under £20, including a well-deserved 15% tip for the very friendly staff.

Beautiful old pub and restaurant doing a good selection of specials but also theme nights-ie pie night or meat fest. Sunday lunch was very good and good atmosphere in the pub. Nice relaxing sunday lunch.

For my second ever Tripadvisor comment it's nice to write something positive.

After eating at the Royal Oak some months ago I was less that complimentary! Having re-visited last Thursday I have to say that the meals and all round experience was first class. My steak was delicious and cooked to perfection, my guest has not stopped raving about his curry and is very keen to re-visit. The menu and the nightly specials offer a great variety, I think it will be 'Pie night' next time.

Highly recommended a very nice meal in a very pleasant atmosphere with no pretence!

Used to be such a wonderful country pub with good food good beer and friendly staff, now it has a tired look, hit or miss on over priced food and staff that dont want to be there.
