A last minute decision to go out instead of cooking, this was a great decision. Two adult and two children's roast dinners......beautifully mouth watering...we all enjoyed every mouthful and we were not left disappointed. Worth every penny, friendly staff great good great service.

Often come here with my mum for lunch, one of my favourite picks would be the steak sandwich! Never fails to please! Always has friendly staff and food is always nice :)

Outside seating area has just been renewed along with the kids area, ready for the summer.

We have been eating here for several years and never had a bad meal. The quality of the food is generally very good, sourced locally where possible. It is not a spectacular experience, but just a really nice country pub, with lovely staff.
We have eaten here a couple of times recently - we prefer to visit for dinner - and the experience has been great. We have suffered the occasional slip here and there over the years, but anything is put right without any problem.
They have a really good selection of starters and mains in particular and a decent, fairly priced wine list.
I can see from recent comments that large parties may cause them a bit of a problem, but that could occur anywhere. We were part of a large party a year or two ago and everything went smoothly.
I have never reviewed The Royal Oak before, but it was time I did after many years of visits. I have only marked it overall as 'very good', because in my world nothing's perfect !!
It won't be too long before we visit again and we will look forward to it.

Had lasagne which was just a mush of mince and tomatoes with no sign of any pasta or cheese sauce. Then had apple crumble which had almost raw flour on top and no crunch at all. Very disappointed with food. But service was excellent and staff very friendly, just shame about the food.
