We visited the Royal Oak, Kinnersley with friends on a Saturday evening. Friendly no efficient service, lovely dining room and excellent Italian menu. Our meals were delicious - looking forward to going again soon. Would recommend to anyone who enjoys authentic Italian food as prepared, cooked and served by this family-run restaurant.

Went to the recently refurbished pub and Italian restaurant with friends last night, I can't comment on what it was like before as we had never visited before. We received a pleasant and friendly welcome in the cosy bar where we had a quick drink before eating. The restaurant was clean and smartly furnished and the hosts, who are Italian,... More

The new restaurant owners have made a vast improvement and it fits well with the pubs new refurbishment. The food and service are excellent it just lacks atmosphere. Just needs the locals to support the restaurant and I'm sure word of mouth will bring in new custom.

We came here for a family meal shortly after Christmas. Despite a few last minute drop outs, dramatically reducing our numbers, the staff were understanding and let us choose a new table by the window. Having spent a fair bit of time in Italy, I felt the food to be authentic and classic Italian hospitality to match. Very polite, attentive... More

We had a very pleasant evening tonight. The ambiance is nearly there. The band playing were great. The only problem was the quality of the food. Our starters and mains tasted like they were lifted off the shelf of a supermarket rather than cooked onsite In an authentic Italian kitchen. Staff were very pleasant and tried hard. Food just needs... More

Really tasty Italian food made by Italian staff, well priced, in a lovely country Pub. A real surprise and treat, would definitely recommend to friends and family. Definitely on par with the food served at well established restaurants such as The Olive Tree.

What appears to be a pretty ordinary country pub is the home to this Italian restaurant run by real Italians who know how to cook. The menu is not overly adventurous as they are just starting up but what they do is excellent quality and delivered by attentive, caring staff who aim to please.

My husband and I ate here last night. We both enjoyed our meals and found portion sizes perfect. The staff were friendly and helpful. Unfortunately there was only one other couple in, hopefully more people will try it. We will go back again.
