Hungry Horse pub - was happy with the good deals they have on, especially for families. Had the prosecco for £9.99 - which was good quality. Girlies liked the kids selection and we sat in a booth which worked well for a family as it had lots of space for us the spread out - colouring activities etc. Good food,... More

Once again over cooked food and poor service, thought it was improving but sadly not. How can you keep getting such basic food so wrong

Visited today and had the best service I could have had whilst visiting the old Royal Oak, greeted with a smile from the team and nothing was too much hassle, food didn't take long maximum 20 minutes and cooked to perfection, we had burgers and cod of chips between us. Topped off with a sweet shop mania and cookie pizza... More

Was over charged for drinks as ordered 2 large draught diet cokes and received 2 330ml Diet Coke bottles which were not large. They didn't sort the difference in price until questioned and the...

I've been going to the Old Royal Oak for practically 6 and a half years now and it's only gone downhill, especially recently. It used to be lively, fun, have tasty food, friendly staff, interesting events, but when I visited last night, it was dead. Virtually empty, there was no music, it was dirty and the food was lackluster. Below,... More

I have visited here a few times now and always find it a pleasant experience. The food is always been tasty and the prices are very reasonable. The biggest reason we return though is the pleasant setting and family friendly atmosphere. The staff are always pleasant and professional even when the place is really busy.
