Every so often my friend and I meet up for dinner. With a couple of hours drive between us we usually look to find somewhere halfway. I came across the Royal Oak, reviews looked good so I booked a table. It didn’t disappoint, lovely village setting, very friendly staff and customers and the food was spot on. Lots to choose from but at the same time not too huge a selection, real home cooked food and huge portions, so much so we couldn’t manage dessert - we’ll just have to go back again!

We found and booked the Royal Oak on Wowcher. We were given a very warm welcome and the accommodation was perfect.
We decided to take an evening meal in the restaurant. The food was first class which was prepared by the chef John.
Then breakfast in the morning was of equal quality.
Altogether a wonderful experience and would have no hesitation in recommending this establishment.

We stayed here on a 2 night Groupon deal and enjoyed our visit. The rooms are separate from the main building. Large rooms with en suite. Comfortable double bed and ample storage space. No Wi-fi whilst in room but accessible when inside the pub itself. Ample parking spaces, breakfasts cooked to order and our choice of dishes when having dinner were tasty and of large portions. Thanks to Andy and staff we enjoyed our stay here. It is the only pub in the village. No shops, so quite remote.

Spotted an email from Next Door reminding us of a music night at Royal Oak. Wasn't sure what to expect.
Music really good. Food even better and service 5*. Just a normal pub doing things the right way / old fashioned way.
Such a shame our local (Griffin in Irnham) doesn't offer food, service or atmosphere like this.
