We have been visiting Bromyard Downs for many years and always planed to visit The Royal Oak and now we wish we had been there sooner. After a lovely walk on the Downs we decided to go in for lunch, we were immediately made to feel welcome by the friendly staff, we both ordered the home made steak and kidney pie and although we would have preferred a slightly thicker pastry topping it is a minor detail in our overall enjoyment of the meal. The staff were attentive without being over the top and the building and grounds only add to the overall experience.
We will be visiting again soon.

I cannot ever say I have had anything but a lovely meal here. Been a fair few times over last 3 years.
GREAT PUB GRUB. With friendly and quick service and in my opinion perfectly priced!
I was here on the 15th March for a meal with the family for my 21st and they even added a candle to my dessert! :)
I have recommended a few people and will continue to and return myself!

The Royal Oak is set in beautiful grounds with extensive views across Herefordshire to the West. The outside drinking and eating area is smart, clean and well equipped. the garden is very well tended and there are swings and other play items for the little ones.

The food is good everyday fare. I enjoy the home made curries and chillis and the pies are well regarded. The menu is broad but a bit predictable and isn't "gourmet" standard. But it is right at the top of the tree for regular pub fare.

The service is friendly, attentive and efficient.

Special praise for the excellent range of three real ales, all local and always in perfect condition whenever I go there - which is at least once a month.

We have been visiting the Royal Oak for years and never come away disappointed. Whether it's sitting next to the open fire in winter or enjoying the beer garden after walking the dogs around the downs on a summer evening, it ticks all the countryside pub boxes.
No matter how busy or quiet, there is always a warm welcome and a relaxed atmosphere. The food is fantastic and comes in man size portions, with a constantly changing range of specials, all at very reasonable prices.
Can't fault it.

Have been here many times now. The food is of a very high standard and consistently excellent. I usually have a steak and everytime has been cooked to perfection and high quality ingredients. I would recommend this pub to anyone. Absolutely excellent food and service. Thanks.
