Brilliant staff. Good accommodation/comfortable. Breakfast was way too much but good. Kept me going all day. Pub is situated right in the middle of the town next to the Friday market. Friday/Saturday nights can be noisy depending on what's going on

We stayed one night in Helmsley for a wedding party. The room (number 1) was spacious, clean and well decorated with a view across the market place. The Tassimo coffee machine in the room was a very nice touch & was most welcome after a long journey. When I asked about alternative parking (the Market place is only short stay)...

Fantastic food!!! Steak pie was delicious with huge chunks of meat and the homemade chips were cooked to perfection. Also a huge fan of the Hot Shot Parmo, being from Middlesbrough it's great to find one that lives upto my expectations! My boyfriend and I love a drive to Helmsley and especially to the Royal Oak for lunch. The pub...

Can't vouch for the accommodation as we only called here for lunch. Initial impression is of a nice enough market town inn overlooking a pleasant square. Inside the traditional feel continues and I'm sure it would be a nice place to pass some time sipping a few drinks. For food, go somewhere else. The tables were noticeably dirty with the...

Called in for lunch and it was busy, no tables. That's a good sign so no problem with that. A small table was free right by the door. It was housing a tray of salt & pepper pots but there were 2 empty bar stools there so I asked if we could use that table but was told "no it's...

Great value hotel. It's actually a cross between and B&B and a Hotel and is superbly located as a holiday base. The room was great with all the usual facilities and a great coffee machine. The breakfast was in the bar and was a great start to the day, freshly prepared and you could have what you wanted. Hotel staff...

Good clean modern bedrooms and freshly cooked breakfast with a good choice make this a top choice for a few days in Helmsley. Very competitive price compared with the large hotels in Helmsley.Evening meals also possible except Sunday.

We had planned a Sunday trip out and wanted to combine a walk with the kids and dog, with Sunday lunch. Having walked to lake gormire not far from helmesley we decided to eat in this lovely little market town. The Royal Oak had said it was dog friendly so I knew it would be ok to take Alfie in...
