“wedding reception”
Reviewed March 26, 2014

Beautiful pub with very friendly welcoming landlord and staff, it was a fantastic night. Stayed in the accommodation at the Royal Oak which was perfectly fine for the nights stay at a good price and would definatly stay again if it means getting another awesome breakfast :) i think it would be very hard to find any dissapointment with the Royal Oak.

I have always cooked on Christmas Day but this year with guests here we decided to eat out. It was an amazing meal and excellent value. Pip and Carmen worked so hard to ensure everything was served hot and the ambiance was lovely.
I can't recommend this pub/ restaurant highly enough.

We had visited the Royal Oak for lunch/dinner and were so impressed with the food and owners we asked if they would host our wedding reception. They were fantastic and so accommodating and many of our guests said it was one of the best wedding receptions they had been to. The food was lovely and hot, which is difficult to achieve with so many people, the pub has a great atmosphere and is very comfortable and relaxing. One of our guests was so impressed he took his mother to the Royal Oak the following day for lunch.

Pip (Clint) and Carmen have worked so hard on this lovely quintessential English pub and it's well worth a visit.

We would thoroughly recommend staying at The Royal Oak. We were given a warm welcome by Pip & shown to our chalet which was clean & comfortable. The pub itself has a lovely atmosphere with low ceilings, beams & a roaring fire & lots of memorabilia including Clint Eastwood, as Pip looks very like Clint Eastwood! (See photos, sorry a bit dark!) We had booked for dinner & our food was delicious, cooked by Carmen as well as the full English breakfast in the morning. We could have stayed alot longer. Thank you Pip & Carmen for making our stay a memorable one. Wishing you both all the best & hope to come back again soon in the not too distant future. Sarah & Patrick

We have recently moved to the area and tried lots of restaurants in Rye. We decided to try one closer to home and went on Saturday night . It was busy and the restaurant area by the fire was full. We sat elsewhere in the quirky and full of character bar. The beer was kept well and the small but well thought out menu was on the blackboard.We shared the Camembert starter then my husband had chilli and I had one of the best fillet steaks I have ever had. A great local pub and we will definitely be back.

Booked into the Royal Oak for a couple of nights mainly because of previous reviews here.
The rooms are a block of wooden chalets, clean, quite new and comfortable but fairly basic. Only real problem, just one bedside cabinet and light for a double bed. I can imagine some interesting arguments about who gets the side with the cabinet. We would have been happier if the asking price had been lower.
Eat in the pub on the first night and the food is simple excellent fare, generous portions, good ingredients and reasonably priced.
Breakfast is equally impressive. A glass of orange juice apiece waiting for you, cereals and milk. A very nice cooked breakfast to order and wonderful toast.
The owner really does look like Clint Eastwood by the way and his partner is very friendly and happy to help.
The property is still being improved so there are some signs of ongoing building work.
In conclusion, a great place to eat simple, home cooked food. The accommodation is fine but feels a bit overpriced. It is located on a fairly busy road so not the quietest place we've stayed.

Room Tip: Low numbers are behind the pub and may be quieter.
