Another very enjoyable Sunday lunch. There is a new chef and his lunch menu was both traditional roasts and other choices including a very good red mullet dish that I chose. A good selection of starters and desserts. A venue we always enjoy and will return to.

Took hubby away for 2 nights for his birthday 3-5 Feb. Lovely room, with TV and dvd. Very comfy bed. Warm room. We were having a break away from the kids so spent most our time watching dvds in the room. Nice area, quiet. Good food for good prices. Lovely landlord, very friendly and helpful. Would definitely visit again

Just had a weekend break at the Royal Oak and if your looking for a bustling weekend away this is not the place for you. If, like I was looking for a quiet relaxing weekend you will struggle to beat this charming proper village B&B The rooms are at the side of the pub and are of very good quality,... More

Stayed one night to break up a long trip. Rooms are amazing for the price. Clean and tidy 99% of the room only off putting factor was the dirty light in the room you could see all the bugs that had died in there it would only take a few minutes to detach and clean it. The shower was also... More

Don't be put off if the restaurant is empty when you go in - I think we came at its quietest time but wow what amazing food and service! Kids menu was excellent - generous size for my 7 and 9 year old boys who both eat like adults! Pie and Pork belly were delicious and the desserts nearly killed... More

Stayed one night on business to break a journey north on the A1, it's 10-15 minutes from the Colsterworth junction. Rooms are "motel-style" in a purpose built block adjacent to the pub, clean and comfortable, plenty of space. Nice pub, friendly staff, good food, good beer. WiFi only works in the bars, not the rooms. Good cooked breakfast in the... More

My husband had never seen a glass this size before! The welcome here was warm and the wood burner a real treat.
