Made to feel safe and relaxed outside and within COVID restrictions. Wouldn't change anything, someone clearly knows what they're doing and the Buger was AMAZING!!

Particularly enjoyed the Broad Bean/Pea/Spinach burger - we do eat meat but less often than we used to, we ordered one of each burger but decided the veggie one was our favourite. We would eat more veggie options if you are able to offer them in future. A soft drinks menu would be helpful if easy to achieve as we had to ask what was available.

As our first visit anywhere after lockdown, overall a pleasant experience. We were lucky with the weather but maybe the addition of some umberellas & heaters would be prudent.

Despite current restrictions, the food and service were as excellent as always at the Royal Oak. As expected, the menu choice was a little limited, but there were still enough dishes to make lunch an enjoyable experience. Looking forward to our next visit.

Only lost stars for lack of outdoor heating as we chose a cool and slightly wet day to dine. Food and service as good, and friendly, as ever

The setting was perfect in clear sunshine. The service was excellent and the prices were extremely reasonable. As one might expect tgiven the Covid pandemic the menu choices were very limited but the food served on the day was very good.

Great choice of drinks available, food was lovely (chicken burger and flatbread pizza), staff were really helpful and friendly. The sun was shining so it made it a perfect evening! Hoping to book your Friday night date, as we were unable to attend in December due to covid.
