“Very good food”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

We ate here last night after a walk, so we were certainly ready for a tasty filling meal. The menu is quite extensive, All the usual options and more, but a single Veggie main (stir fry without chicken) which wasn't available. Still my wife had cauliflower and stilton soup and creamy mushrooms on toast and I had the "large" fish and chips which was huge. Excellent chips too.

Decent house wine, fair enough price, though the decoration was an odd mix with a rather insipid pale green colour scheme.

All very tasty and filling, but actually too many options on the menu. Even though the food was very good maybe a little more invention would be nice. Also no real veggie options, but we still had a good meal and went home full and happy.

“Delicious food, excellent service, great price!”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

We visited the Royal Oak on 28th Jan 2013, it has been recently refurbished, a huge improvement on our previous visit early last year. The owners where fabulous, so accommodating, Nothing was too much trouble, the food was fresh and delicious, my husband had the mixed grill which had a lovely big steak on, descent portions at a reasonable price. We will definitely be visiting again.

“The evening was let down as the place was cold and had no atmosphere”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

The landlady was lovely and the food was. Good. However it was very cold and there was no atmosphere. The decor doesn't help- cream and mint green- defining the dining part of the bar with warm red would help.

“Best Steak EVER!”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

Having just moved to the area we were thrilled when the Royal Oak reopened in Dec! The landlady Maureen and her team give a very warm welcome and I have now (having eaten there THREE times) can honestly say it is the best sirloin steak I have EVER tasted! (trust me - I'm a Meat Buyer's daughter!!) Their range of wines is delicious too - very partial to the Ocean Bay! Can't wait to dine and drink there again!!
