A most enjoyable meal at the Royal Oak where the little things (like the proper linen napkins) do make a difference. Food very good and portions are generous.

Worth looking for off A$0 outside Cheltenham with large car park, welcoming bar area, garden at back and separate restaurant on two levels. An excellent selection of beers and cider with a comprehensive menu which apparently changes to reflect seasonal food. There were good starters,...More

This family run restaurant has a great atmosphere. Before the current owners bought the place there was nothing to draw in customers. The building and patio have been renovated to a high standard. The food is varied and good. Well worth a visit

Amazing dinner. Sea bass special. Waitress was happy to substitute the new potatoes for mash potatoes (thank the lord lol). Was a really great home cooked style meal. Give stars all the way

Quality food at fair prices. Nice ambiance with friendly staff. To give a flavour the mayonnaise had been made properly, not in a sachet and the coffee was excellent. There is a good range of food including gluten-free options. Easy to park too

Called for a drink and so glad we did! It was a cold day in March and there was a lovely log fire and excellent beers. Very dog friendly too.

Good evening, We are dog friendly, but we only allow dogs in the bar area and garden, not the restaurant unfortunately. Hope this helps! Kind regards, The Royal Oak

Yes we do, but unfortunately not in the restaurant area. We serve the same menu in the bar though and are more than happy to take bookings for those tables too, to ensure you can get a table. I hope this has helped, and we... More

The Royal Oak has had a rich and varied history since it’s initial construction in 1628. From our very first viewing we could immediately see the potential and decided that this beautiful, historic pub deserved more. My family and I purchased the freehold in 2015 with a vision to breathe new life into an otherwise neglected public house. We aim to create space for exquisite dining, an ale to suit every palate and a warm, welcoming atmosphere for both locals and visitors alike. Our son is an extremely accomplished chef who has trained at some of the most established hotels up and down the country. He is now bringing his 3 rosette knowledge to the table and along with his brigade, is putting together a menu fit for both fine dining connoisseurs and classic pub food lovers. But don’t take our word for it; please come and try for yourself..
