Absolutely fabulous family pub! Excellent menu with plenty of choice and very flexible for children! We were looked after brilliantly by Steph, Danni and Nayel who were not only friendly and attentive but also interacted with the children who were provided with an abundance of...crayons, paper and puzzles. The food was excellent and a lovely ambience. Leave room for desert!More

Althought the food is very nice we felt that there wasn't much choice on the menu and regarding the cost, it was quite high for what we had in a local pub there are similar establishments around the area with more choices at a more...realistic price.More

The pub itself - family friendly, nice enough inside, staff are friendly. The Sunday roast - Okay. Would give the roast itself 3 stars. For £18 I would of expected a higher quality roast, for example the potatoes are frozen, from a packet, they didn’t...taste very nice as they were dry and they had that frozen taste. For £18 I’d of expected real roasties which is my favourite part of a Sunday dinner so that was a bit of a let down.More

I do not normally respond to reviews but.... We have NEVER used frozen potatoes. They are peeled and roasted every Sunday ready for service and if there are any left at the end they are thrown away. I personally have never had a frozen roast...More

We came across the Royal Oak by chance as we were out for a drive and three other pubs were either closed down or only offering "snacks" as they had no restaurant staff. The young bar staff were very welcoming and friendly as was the...owner/manager who stopped by our table for a chat. We ordered drinks and they brought us the menus with the "Specials" of the day on a chalk board. We chose both the specials of stroganoff with rice and the pan-fried sea bass on a bed of pea, asparagus and spinach risotto. They were both perfectly cooked and presented. Hot and very tasty. We both had the oaty-topped fruit crumble - one with custard and one with ice cream. Both were delicious. We enjoyed our lunch and would definitely recommend this friendly pub in a pretty Surrey Village.More

Today I visited The Royal Oak in a party of four for lunch, and as in previous times I’ve visited too, the meals were delicious and reasonably priced too. Staff service was excellent with two waitresses keen to please us with their attentive prompt service,...all very polite and with a smile. Each meal was served hot, with Sausage & Mash, Veggie Lasagne, Fish Chips & Peas, and a Chicken Burger dish all proving to be very good & perfectly tasty. A good selection of Ales at the bar completed this extremely pleasant lunch out. I can thoroughly recommend the food and service at The Royal Oak at Wrecclesham.More

Lovely Hotel. Staff can’t do enough for you and the rooms and bathrooms are beautifully decorated and very welcoming. Great TV choices and great breakfast. Will definitely seek out this hotel chain in other parts of the country. Fantastic!

I’ve popped into this pub a few times and finally made time for a Sunday roast with my friends, and I’m so glad we did! The nut roast went down a treat, the chicken was very tender, the potatoes crispy (and the cauliflower cheese exceptional)....Needless to say we’ll be back - maybe for Burger Thursday. Staff were friendly and incredibly welcoming. And made sure the nut roast was gf for my partner. Thank you!More

Had a lovely meal with family and friends at this fab pub. Roast was tasty, hot and plentiful. Puddings were gorgeous, esp the crumble and sticky toffee pudding. Won't hesitate to come back again and would highly recommend.

We came here for Sunday lunch, as the reviews were very helpful 👍 and a bonus was that we got a deal on Groupon. The place was very charming and had that old fashioned country pub look. The greeting and service was welcoming and warming...☺️ and the food was absolutely gorgeous. We would definitely recommend this place and cannot wait to visit again 😀More

Went to this pub on the basis of the reviews for Sunday lunch. The atmosphere was fine and it was not too busy. However, the service was slow. 2nd round of drinks I had to go and remind them about. We all ordered a roast....The portion sizes were good but the quality wasn't that great. Yorkshire puds tasted odd and some of the veg a bit bland. All in all a mediocre experience. The staff came and asked if everything was OK and yes it was just ok........................... Staff looked bored to be honest.More
