Popped in here for a quick drink and snack lunch. The parking is a little sparse, but we managed to find somewhere to leave the car and went in to sit in the bar. They have a large TV at the end which was a little distracting, but the bar is light and airy with lots of high stools/chairs that... More

We asked a local to recommend a pub for lunch and she suggested the Royal Oak. We all had different requirements and I was concerned they might not be happy that we... More

We have now had several meals at the Royal Oak including Sunday lunch, and everyone has been a winner. Excellently cooked and presented food, good value for money, is matched if not surpassed by the warm bubbly waitresses and warm welcoming atmosphere of the restaurant. Lovely touch was the complimentary taster sent out by the chef for us to try.... More
