Went to this pub on a Thursday night, we were very impressed with the food and very friendly welcome, I don't know names, needless to say that it was the guy that I can see that others have referred to on here as Clint Eastwood! :-)

There was a guy sat at the bar casually playing a guitar and did an extremely lovely version of Vincent - not sure if this is a regular occurrence but if it isn't it should be!

Left there feeling really really relaxed and we will be back for sure.

Excellent atmosphere, really decent proper pub,great ales and if your lucky you'll get served by 'Clint Eastwood'. The food was fantastic had the duck breast and it was lovely really well cooked and moist. Highly recommend. Lovely outdoor space, for outdoor eating if the weather cheers up! Revisited for the 'Wassail' in January (traditional festival) and had an amazing time.:)

After looking round & deciding on the royal oak for a meal out we were incredibly impressed. The food was FANTASTIC - between the 6 of us we tried 3 different meals and each one was superb. Would definately recommend this pub for a meal out.

I have just had Christmas dinner here, suffice to say food and service was excellent and extremely accommodating. Anti pasti starter, roast turkey with all the trimmings and selection of desserts with coffee and mince pies. There was 11 of us and we all had our food at he same time and it was hot; when you are doing 53 covers this is not easy so very impressed by this. The restaurant was clean and well staffed so we weren't waiting for ages to get a drink. Out of the window chalet style accommodation which if the restaurant is to be used as a gauge I would definitely recommend.
Very very enjoyable experience.

We have eaten at the Royal Oak about 5 times and felt it was time to give them a review.

This really is a great place to get real quality pub food, and it deserves to be more successful. There is no written menu, just a blackboard featuring five or six dishes that are all fresh and I believe local produce. The meat is good quality and the vegetables fresh and well prepared. The prices are also very reasonable. There is also a great log fire, which was just the job today, with the weather turning chilly.

It is a bit quirky inside and the lighting needs a bit of attention, but I would recommend the Royal Oak to anyone looking for a really good pub meal in and around the Rye area, we have tried many and none come up to this standard.
