“Good beer and warm fire”
Reviewed November 27, 2013

Went here for a late afternoon drink before dining at L'Enclume.
Roaring fire was welcome and the local beer was excellent - pint of "The Last Wolf" brewed in the small Cartmel Brewery round the corner. Great service.

“Fab food and service”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

Went to the royal oak in october, the food is amazing and the staff cant do enough for you. If you visit cartmel i cant recommend this pub highly enough. It is also a great place to stay and the breakfast was amazing. There is also a lively beer garden out the back

“On the way up.”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

Eaten here before but on a recent visit they seem to be upping their game (is Cartmel to become the food haven of the North?). Good selection of beers as usual. The menu is pleasing and the specials on the day of visit were excellent, I had a wonderful trio of local sausages. Local produce are used and the beers are also local where possible (brewery just around the corner). Staff were attentive and knowledgeable about the food they were serving. Price reasonable. In the summer you can sit and eat outside in the beer garden but bar area has a cosy feel on a cold day. Looking forward to visiting again, keep up the good work.
