We stayed at the Royal Oak for 2 nights (Sunday & Monday) as attended an event at Donnington circuit – which was only 5 miles away. This was a great find…everything was brilliant. The level of service was AMAZING – I called to discuss the room and if I could park a motorcycle safely outside my room (which we did easily!). As we arrived on Sunday and it was “Pie Night” and I am coeliac and diary intolerant… so they made me my own pie! They even put Almond milk in my fridge in the room!!! The Breakfast and A La Carte menu – all had gluten free options – and all the food was delicious and well presented. The courtyard room was lovely and spacious, clean and comfortable, with a coffee machine and fridge. Thank you to all the staff for making it a lovely couple of days. I could not recommend this place enough – although wishing I could keep it a secret for my next visit.

This was the first time we have had an evening meal at The Royal Oak and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Both the food and service was excellent. The vegetarian gravy was exceptional. Would love mine to taste like that. Would recommend to friends and family. Thanks

A lot of interesting choice. Everything was well presented and delicious, and served with a smile. The Royal Oak remains our Number 1 choice for a meal out within a half-hour's drive of home.
