My husband and I were staying just outside of Cartmel and visited The Royal Oak lastnight for dinner. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly and they were Dog friendly too. The food was great and the portions were massive. The only slight downside was it was a just little bit pricey. The place had a great atmosphere though and...

We visited the Royal Oak 3 years ago and returned again as we remembered the quality of the food! As a family of 4 we had a range of different meals including, burgers, steak, gammon and ribs. The beast burger is a must if your hungry ;-) All the meals were cooked well and were large portions. The prices are...

Nothing much to be over praised but nothing much to condemn. The situation on the square is idyllic. If you can sit out side it's great for listening to the beck and the people going by. The food is on the right side of acceptable but just standard pub fare. Staff are attentive and pleasant. Price pretty standard.

We visited here over bank holiday weekend for Cartmel races and it was very busy. The staff were very friendly and efficient. Whilst we didn't eat here the food that was coming out of the kitchen did look very good. Great selection of beers and drinks. Great stop with a great atmosphere for the races.

We spent a week in the lakes and actually ate here twice. This was because the food was so good and it was such a nice atmosphere. The staff were great with our dog and when we called in during the day they came out and fed her fresh ham from the kitchen. The food was excellent and they made...
