“Great meal”
Reviewed 18 April 2014

Living fairly locally we had heard that the Royal Oak served nice and food and wow, they certainly do! Good choice, fairly priced and cooked to perfection. The people serving were busy, but very efficient and welcoming. Best meal we have had in ages! Not too sure if someone with limited mobility might find some of the access a little difficult, I think it might be wise to check before taking a person who uses a wheelchair for a meal here -there may of course be a back or side entrance which I didnt see.

“Lovely”
Reviewed 21 February 2014

What a welcome haven after a very muddy walk from Tarr Steps. Our lunches were delicious and the cheese ploughmans was to die for. Perfect cheeses and perfect service along with very welcome drinks. Would recommend highly.

“Great local dinner!”
Reviewed 3 February 2014

We were recommended The Royal Oak by Peter & Irene at West Hollowcombe Farm in Hawkridge and we had a superb meal (and pud). Good wine choices and the food was more than your average pub grub, healthy choices (whole sea bream) which appealed to me and more traditional meals(liver & bacon) for the husband !!

The quality of the food and service was excellent. The pheasant and lamb were cooked to perfection. Best place to eat on Exmoor.

“Fantastic food”
Reviewed 13 January 2014

All of the food we ordered was excellent but I must say the Sticky Toffee Pudding was the most amazing thing I have ever tasted. Go there now and try it
