I have used the Royal Oak on many occasions and have never been let down by the quality of the food or service. I can highly recommend it.

Very friendly staff, excellent selection of beers, food was simply amazing. It was our first time here and we have already made 2 more bookings to return. Particularly impressed with the fresh bread made in-house.

It was a quieter night than usual, being in the post-Christmas and New Year lull, but that meant staff weren't too busy for a little chat. Everything was of the usual high standard.

The pigeon was one of the finest meals I’ve had in a pub for years. Beautifully cooked. All our party enjoyed their experiences and it was a wonderful start to New Years Eve.

Quality seasonal food cooked to perfection. Creme brulee was the best we've ever had anywhere! Good atmosphere even with a larger group booking a table it wasn't distracting.

Fabulous food once again from the 2019 Seasonal Menu. Pre-selection of food is a good idea, but I feel it’s slightly over the top to email & ask how a steak choice wants be cooked. Makes it hard work for the person organising the booking. Please note, that if you have booked a table to 7:30 - that is exactly when your food will arrive. Take care when ordering wine, as it can be very expensive. Staff are friendly and attentive. The restaurant can be very noisy, due to the low ceiling, unless you’re with a big noisy group, the bar area is better. I’ve sampled 2 seasonal evening meals plus a lunch in the last month, as per my opening comment, the food is hard to beat !
