We stayed 2 nights while visiting the area. Our room was very comfortable, so ok it isn't the lap of luxury but for the cheapest room in town very good. We had breakfast both mornings which was excellent. We also had an evening meal which was lovely.

We stayed 2 nights at The Royal Oak. Staff were very welcoming and friendly throughout our stay. Room was ok (room 5) but shower was awful as it was just a trickle rather than a shower. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. Would stay here again but would ask for a different room because of the shower. Settle is a beautiful...

Staying near Settle last week on our walking holiday in the Yorkshire Dales, we went into the town one evening for a meal. We plumped for the Royal Oak, which turned out to be a great choice. It was a quiet Monday, so we had no problems getting a table in the spacious dining area. The interior has a very...

Have visited a couple of times in the last month for food and have left happy both times. I've eaten the scampi and chips and the burger during my visits and both have been excellent value for money and very tasty. Staff are friendly and the pub is pleasant. The 2 for 1 offer on Tuesdays makes it even better...

The Royal Oak has a great location right in the middle of Settle, a nice Yorkshire market town that's well worth a visit. The downstairs area of the pub is quite pleasant but was pretty empty for the duration of my stay. The room offered to me (I was travelling solo) was quite big with a double bed and large...

Staff excelled themselves to serve our walking group which was big enough to fill the whole restaurant area. Food was really nicely presented and of very good quality and value - considerably better than last year. Would really recommend it to anyone planning a similar event.
