Visited with my wife and a bit perplexed with no-one else there.Near the National Memorial Arboretum at Arlewas.However good choice of bitter and the steak was first class.Cutlery too was impressive.New owners and this was reflected with no 'SPECIALS' board yet and none of the standard pub options,e.g Fish and chips,Gammon ,Lasagne etc which would broaden the appeal and ensure we won't dine on our own next time!However ,real chips ,Daniel who served us was pleasant and efficient and the steak ,memorable.Hope they can fill in the car-park pot-holes and trust the new owners do well which I'm sure they will with a broader appeal on the menu.One confusing point,the latest review refers to it as near Charlton Athletic's ground.THIS IS ABOUT 100 MILES AWAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We visited the Royal OK mid week. It was busy with locals, a good sign, and had a wide menu which was not over priced. The food was hot, well presented and tasty. They have a bar menu and a separate Pizza menu, we ate from the bar menu. if we have the opportunity it will definitely be revisited.
