We went here for an early evening meal, not realising it was "Curry and Quiz Night". All tables seemed to be reserved but the barman quickly found us a table as he realised we would be finished before the reservation time. At no stage did we feel hurried, and we enjoyed our meals which were large, hot & well-cooked. Good... More

Went to The Royal Oak for an evening meal celebrating a Birthday, in a party of 18, Our meals were pre-booked, and despite the numbers, everything ran like clockwork. The food was perfect and the service first rate. The staff could not have ben more friendly and helpful. Definitely a place to return to!

I booked a table for three people for a leaving lunch to celebrate a colleague who had given 20 years service to my company. The front of house staff were really helpful and my colleagues starters and main courses were delightful. However my rump steak which was ordered medium-well came out completely burnt. These things happen so I asked for... More
