“A pleasant evening meal in lovely surroundings”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2014

We were staying locally and chose the royal oak from a range of other pubs. Plenty of room with a good range of dishes on the menu and three real ales on tap. It wasn't very busy so service was prompt and efficient. Based on the demeanour of the host I couldn't see the experience changing. We had three courses. The chocolate brownie sundae was lovely but don't eat too much beforehand.

We plan to return when we are in the area again.

“Steaks that melt in your mouth”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

We stumbled across the Royal Oak by accident looking for a place to eat on our way across country from West Wales and it is now a regular stop off and high on our list of places to eat. When you walk in, the first thing you see is a display of very tempting puddings. On their own, those sweets are delicious enough to warrant a return visit but their steaks are truly outstanding. Supplied by a local butcher, they are absolutely mouthwatering. We'll be back again

“Great service, food and beer”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2014 via mobile

We have been to the Royal Oak twice this week, with a group of 12 and then 17! Service and food was excellent and second time round we got to enjoy the selection of ales on offer which was much better. Great view down over Bromyard and a short taxi back to Little Frome Farm accommodation which we would also recommend.

“Our favourite pub in Bromyard”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2014 via mobile

We often go for meals here and we always get good service, and lovely food at sensible prices. It has a great atmosphere, roaring log fires on cold days, bright and sunny in summer. The staff are very considerate -for example they'll always let my elderly father in law order sausage and chips even when it's not on the menu!

“A lovely country pub in a wonderful setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2014

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.
