The Royal Oak is a charming 19th century pub in the village of River near Dover in Kent. Formed from 18th century flint cottages we have been serving the village for 200 years. A friendly warm welcome and 5 new rooms with walk-in showers are available as well as a Nespresso coffee machine in each room. We provide complimentary breakfast and we have a chef preparing traditional English dishes each evening. Come stay with us and explore all the local sights such as Dover Castle as well as experiencing the English pub. Whatever you prefer we hope to see you soon.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
