I went for a meal here with friends yesterday and was very disappointed with the steaks both my husband and I had. There was more fat than meat and both very tough (perhaps one of the worst steaks I've ever eaten) and we both had the more expensive steak. On the board it explains we're they get their meat from.... More

I went with my friends on the 15th and we were pleasantly surprised at the prices and the portion sizes. A recommendation from our B&B host, the Royal Oak was both welcoming and charming. The menu was so varied, with a choice of both a bar snacks menu and a main dinner menu, my friends and I had difficulty choosing... More

Here for a business lunch. The restaurant part was virtually empty so good for a meeting but not for their business?! However, service was very efficient and friendly with a good choice of food on the menu + specials. The food came within a good time and was very tasty and well cooked. Good value for money.

Usually go for a drink but have eaten here. To be fair, the food is ok and the staff in the restaurant are friendly enough but the man behind the bar (the manager/owner) has to be the grumpiest person in the world. Having been in there at least a dozen times, I've never had a "hello" from him, let alone... More

What does "hello" and a smile cost? Very unwelcoming and would expect different from a village pub. Not the sort of place I would return to.

After eating at the Royal Oak a couple of times for Sunday lunch we decided to have a night out with friends. The food was fresh and tasty, the portions very large, so large that we unfortunately couldn't fit in a pudding as well as starter, although I have had the sticky toffee pudding on previous occasions and it is...

Seven of us dined here on Friday night. We hadn't booked but were early enough and lucky enough to get seated AND to get to select from the early bird menu. Service was excellent and so was the food. One of our party is a vegan and the chef happily sorted out a vegan meal for her. Every one of... More
