We were staying in Ambleside & were pleased to find this pub which is ideally situated in the centre of the village. Staff friendly & food was good. Good choice of real ales. We chose to eat lunch here. Always busy, good prices & longer lunch times provided 12 - 5pm which was better than lots we looked at in Ambleside which were 12 -2pm

came across this place by chance. Small but friendly pub with some good beer being sold. Could not see a food menu nor did we see anyone eating food.

We visited The Royal Oak for a drink at night and lunch the next day. Both visits were welcoming, service friendly and food good.
A busy spot, we got in for our lunch at the right time. We were told there would be a wait but that was no problem, as we waited the place filled up fast. Considering it was school half therm there was only the two girls on the bar. The coped really well and they were always polite and had a smile on there face. We had jacket potatoes which were just what we wanted.
We love ambleside and we will definitely visit the Oak again if we are in Ambleside.
Recommended.
