Great food and service, very high standards of cleanliness. We took advantage of the Government's Eat Out to Help Out scheme on this occasion, but it would have been really good value for the quality even at full price. Many thanks for an enjoyable lunch. Hope to see you again soon.

Set up has been well-thought out and we felt safe. The service was excellent. Waiting staff all friendly and efficient. We chose from the Summer menu. We both loved our starters but I did struggle to find a main, in the end went for Sea Bass, which was pretty good. I couldn't help think that Steak and Ale pie and slow cooked Belly pork were more winter-type meals... Deserts were both fine. We both thought the wines were a little overpriced

We would just like to say what a lovely relaxing evening we had with you on Saturday. We felt very relaxed as the first time out since before lockdown (and also since the birth of our 9 week old). There was no need to feel nervous as we were very well looked after by our server (sorry didn't catch her name) and the food was excellent as always. We can't wait to come back. Thank you

As usual I had a lovely gluten free meal. The Caesar Salad was excellent. Lunched with my husband, sister and brother-in-law and although they come from Derby they felt it was worth the journey for such lovely food. See you soon.

First meal back in the pub after the re-opening. We felt extremely safe and looked after, the procedures in place are clear and efficient and the new guidance has been taken seriously. The staff were as friendly, helpful and welcoming as ever! The food was fantastic (as usual) and we VERY MUCH enjoyed our first meal out in a long time! We will be back and can definitely recommend people visiting you. Thank You! 😊

A lovely meal out. The food was exquisite. The service was excellent. We were made to feel very welcome, and the measures in place to keep everyone safe were clear, but not encroaching on the quality of the experience. Very pleased. Will return :)

This was our first trip out post the lockdown and we couldn’t have been happier with the Royal Oak for the atmosphere, food, service and measures in place for Covid. We have already recommended it to others. Thanks again and we will be back soon, Bridie and Ste 😊

Brilliant service. Your place is beautiful. We are quite regular customers in your place and after lockdown we were able to notice that food/dishes portions are much smaller than they used to be. That’s a little bit of disappointment.
