My partner and i loved our stay at the old royal oak.
as soon as we arrived we where Greeted by a member of staff who was very welcoming,
we where shown our reserved parking space and given are room key.
our room was very warm and spacious,clean and modern, the bed was very comfy.
we went to the bar for a drink once we had unpacked and we are asked what breakfast we would like and time.
we where quite peckish when we got there and had arrived pretty late, they where serving a variety of meals until 7pm which we where very happy about,
the food was very nice and had a good price with it.
we where amazed at the service and how friendly everyone was, all the regulars made us feel welcome, can't wait to stay there again. will recommend to all my friends and family.

Lovely relaxed atmosphere and cosy pub. Tasty, crispy scampi. Local beers and ciders on tap. A different event every evening, from Psychic readingsto pub quizzes. Very pleasant and relaxing meal.

Old fashioned pub with one of the best Sunday lunches I have tasted. Beef or lamb and home cooked vegetables served in proper dishes. Not a great fan of Yorkshire puddings, but these were lovely a light. Can't fault it.

As per my review of the Riverside Cafe, there are a lack of great eating places in Knaresborough and so this probably accounts for why so many people are dishing out four and five stars for what would be classed as standard venues in any other destination. We headed here for Sunday lunch after going for a huge walk along the River Nidd. The place is a standard pub that was a little shabby on the inside. After asking what the vegetarian choice would be for my partner the barmaid had to go away to ask and see what the chef could rustle up (slightly strange for anyone who visits here who may be a vegetarian also). I chose the beef that was nice and came with a huge dish of vegetables for us both to share. It was a standard meal to be expected from any pub and was not great by any means. It hit the spot and filled a hole, but I would not be rushing back to such a place as it is simply okay. At £7.95 for a meat main and £5.95 for the vegetarian main the value was okay. Would I come back here, probably not.....
