Went to the royal oak for a Sunday lunch. We went early but still most tables were reserved fortunately we were able to get a table. Both had the roast beef which was very good. Would recommend and will go back in the future. Good portion sizes, however would have possibly liked more veg.

Ate here a couple of years ago. It was empty then - a Monday evening. This time, a Friday, it was buzzing but the atmosphere was good, as was the food and real ale. Friendly staff so all in all a pub to be recommended.

We ate here the first time with our 6 year old, when looking for good food in Crawley. It surpassed our expectations! The food was amazing and presented so beautifully. The owners were welcoming and friendly. We will definitely come again!

We ate here last night and really enjoyed ourselves and the food and the staff and the dogs and the rabbit. However, we were not told about the Wednesday meal deal, even though it is on an advertising board on the front patio. We only noticed it today when we returned for lunch. Before going, we looked online and saw... More
