“Tasty food - Interior a little tired”
Reviewed 25 August 2012

The food and service was great, and there is a nice little outside area to eat in but the inside did seem a little tired and in need of updating.

“Over priced”
Reviewed 13 August 2012

I was charged £14.75 for a Burger, chips and a pint of beer. The burger was home made and of good quality but the chips had to much fat and were greasy. The Royal Oak is a typical working mans pub, no to clean upholstery and small round tables. Mostly sticky from spilled beer etc.

Normally this is my type of pub but expect the food to be reasonably priced to reflect the surroundings. They have charged as if it was a posh restaurant with white table cloths and waiter service.

The landlord was good but I still think he overcharged because he can get away with it on tourists.

Neither I or my family will return.

“Charming pub with good food”
Reviewed 7 August 2012

Lovely pub tucked away up the hill, we found it from the signpost at the Italian they also own. It had really nice old fashioned charm with plenty of seating. The food was really good with decent sized portions and not badly priced. If we visited again, we would enquire about there rooms also.

“Pub Grub”
Reviewed 5 August 2012

Good pub to sit outside in the sun. Had a drink and a meal the first night we were in Bowness on Windermere. Food was nothing to write home about.

“Tasty Burgers”
Reviewed 24 July 2012

This place was just down the road from our B & B so often called in for a drink. They have a pool table in the back that doesn't affect the charachter and a small seperate dining area. I'd definately recommend the home made chilli burger with excellent chunky chips. A good think about their menu is that you can still get something light in an evening (sandwich or jacket potato), which a lot of the places don't do as they put in a more expensive evening menu.
