We were there on Sunday lunch time and there was only one other table in at that time, but I did not get to eat for an hour as the service was very slow!! The food was lovely though, when I finally did eat!!!

We originally visited the Royal Oak in the summer. It is a a lovely restaurant. It's spacious and nicely set out. On our previous visit, there was a group of about 8 of us and they messed up our order, not once but twice. On our most recent visit, we went to the restaurant as all the other restaurants in the area were booked up. I was surprised to walk into the restaurant and it was 3/4 empty. The service was excellent and our waitress was polite and very attentive. However, the food was less than average. My spicy noodles were not spicy and the sauce was like something you could buy in the supermarket. Edible but bland. The beef was supposed to be crispy but was overcooked and I couldn't eat it. Sadly, the fact that the restaurant was mostly empty on a Saturday evening speaks for itself. It's really disappointing as I am local and would love to have a great place to eat so close by. I wish that the management would employ a good chef and get some more customers but I fear that this place will not last. I would love to support this local restaurant. I hope my comments will be seen as an opportunity to make some improvements and not as a small minded criticism. Many of my friends and neighbors have expressed a similar viewpoint. I just wanted to give it another chance.

Wasn't quite the visit I was expecting, original table time pushed back 15 min as there was a large party which took priority and meant we were delayed in our drink and food order. There appeared to be lots of staff around but it was clear the large table were the priority. Drinks eventually arrived after chasing and food was ordered after the large table were seen too. I ordered the chicken roast which was very dry. We declined dessert and requested the bill. Overall not what I was expecting after reading all the positive reviews.

We were a party of 12 for Sunday lunch. Very attentive staff, got the balance right between being there when we needed them and not being intrusive. Great atmosphere in the restaurant and food was lovely; well cooked and delicious. Staff went the extra mile to accommodate the food intolerances for a couple of the members in our party and sourced gluten and onion free gravy.Thank you!

The staff were friendly and accommodating. The food excellent, Just one comment, you should have list of ingredients to hand for people with any dietary needs. However, the staff were extremely helpful and it wasn't a problem. Thank you for a lovely afternoon

The surroundings were nice, the food was good and the staff were pleasant and helpful. Difficult to judge the atmosphere because we went at a quiet time, but could have done with it being a bit warmer.

The food was superb could not be faulted. However we were the only ones in the dining room and it was cold. Thought 40 minutes was quite a long wait for the food but when it came it was lovely

We went for lunch on a Monday as it was my wife’s birthday, so it wasn’t very busy, but we could see that the atomosphere would be nice in the evenings. The menu was very varied and the food was excellent and well presented. The staff were very friendly and the service was good.

Had to send 1st meal back and had a second meal that again had to go back. My partners meal was left for him to eat and he was asked if he wanted a desert before I’d even eaten a main. Meal and drinks we’re refunded but just not a great experience

We go every year in a big group and are usually very well looked after in a lovely room off the main restaurant There are good food choices to cater for every taste, there is a decent wine list, and there is a good beer selection.The General Manager, Andrew, is excellent. Unfortunately, this year after senior management had departed for the night, we were told at 22.50 that we couldn't have another (final) drink even though we hadn't been advised of "last orders" and they were still serving in the bar. I had to talk to the duty manager who wasn't keen to serve us, but who relented in the end. This was a black mark on our night and most of our group were very unimpressed.

Nice meal but disappointed that the Sunday lunch menu was not the same as the menu on the website and the food we had wanted was not available. Also when presented with the bill found we had been overcharged.

Nice to see some vegan options. Could've done with being talked through all the great beers on offer instead of just the lager or Guinness. Thought that having a separate area for the bar goers watching football was a good idea. Would come back.
