Location and contact

The Royal Oak is situated on Ross Road, Much Marcle, Ledbury, in a rural location and in an area of outstanding beauty. The surrounding rolling countrysides, the amazing wildlife and the endless walks through nature are just some of the reasons to visit us. The Royal Oak is a quintessential English pub with exposed wooden beams and candlelit tables. As soon as you walk inside, the ambience, the charming character and the warm cosy environment creates an amazing sense of relaxation and peace. The front of house team are here to make your visit extra special from the greeting to the service. We pride ourselves on high standards of customer care whilst our chefs work tirelessly and passionately

Recently had a works team night out here. Great night, excellent food and service was first class. Nothing was too much trouble for the team and would highly recommend for event bookings or whether you just want good quality food. Definitely be returning again soon.
