I rate the food at this pub highly. The sea bass fillet with buttered capers, green beans, roasted fennel and new potatoes was delicious. The cheeseboard was the best I have ever had with a wonderful selection of interesting cheeses beautifully served with a small...More
Came here for dinner on a Tuesday night and luckily the sun was shining so the setting was gorgeous(see photo). Friendly service and good choices on the menu. Shared a platter which was standard pub fare but the scallop starters were exquisite.
The lady who greeted us was so rude we didn’t even bother ordering. Plenty of other nice pubs locally with friendly staff.More

Delicious food at the Royal Oak! The chef always has a creative, tasteful menu using fresh seasonal food and it’s presented very well. Their Covid 19 procedures are very responsible. The staff are great and welcoming. Everything I needed was taken care of. They are...More
We have visited this pub for lunch on many occasions and have never been disappointed. This was our first visit since lockdown was lifted for indoor dining.
The pub was spotlessly clean and tidy and looked freshly decorated. Everything was spacious, comfortable and very well...More
Left feeling very disappointed with the rude staff. I actually think he may even be the general manager which is even more unacceptable. A shame as it’s a lovely looking pub but let down by rude and miserable staff.
Hi Gill, we do cater for children in the main bar area of the pub.
There is a Burger, Chicken Goujons, Cheesy Pasta, Hotdog or Mini Fish on the children's menu.
Please call to reserve a table.
