My family and I decided to go to the Royal Oak on the recommendation of several friends. When I called, at relatively short notice for a Saturday evening reservation they managed to fit us in to a 'cellar room', but rather than impose it upon us the gentleman asked me to check out the images on the website. It looked fine, so we confirmed the reservation.
Upon arrival, the cellar room was certainly in the cellar but was a great room for larger groups (one table could seat upto 10, the other 16).
The menu was very extensive, varied and with lots of choice. The staff were efficient, friendly and attentive and, has been said on TA before, more than happy to cater to your needs.
The food was simply superb. It was well prepared, arrived hot and the quality was excellent. They pride themselves on using local suppliers where possible and it shows. A word of warning however, it must be said that the portions are on the large side so take care if you have your eye on the desert menu - you may not make it!
The Royal Oak is not the cheapest for pub food but is by no means expensive. we thought the value was very good. I would say this is one of the very best we have been to and will definitely return.
