“Royal Oak Tavern, one of my favorite restaurants, closing June 23”
Reviewed June 9, 2013 via mobile

While having dinner at Royal Oak Tavern last night, our server informed is that the property has been sold and they will be closing on/after June 23. It's a shame, because the restaurant has good food and service. Their steaks are very good, and I love my personal favorite, the shrimp wrapped in honey mustard and bacon. The good news, their other locations will remain open: Cork Street in Winchester and Spring House in Woodstock.

“Decent food”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

decent selection of food, but no tartar sauce for the amazing fish and chips-bummer! atmosphere can be a bit rough, not suggested for younger children on a weekend evening.

“A Pleasant Surprise”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

From the outside this restaurant doesn't appear to offer much; but once your food arrives everything changes. With the first bite, you know the food is very good. My favorite is their salmon, though their specialty is ribs. Once you try it, you'll want to go back.
