“Absolutely incredible food, drink, and atmosphere.”
Reviewed 29 June 2014 via mobile

Had a wonderful meal here. The service was great and friendly, and the food absolutely sublime. The portions are definitely big enough and great value for money. The selection of drinks is also varied and large. Not a single disappointment on our visit. Took the whole family and we had an wonderful time. Will definitely be coming back. Thanks again :)

“Lovely little restaurant - wish it was closer to home!”
Reviewed 14 June 2014 via mobile

Visited The Royal Oak on Friday 13th June after a busy day at Alton Towers with my little girl and husband. I think we were very lucky to get a table as they were fully booked for the rest of the evening.
I can't rate the food highly enough. We shared a very generous portion of the squid with chilli flakes and garlic aioli to start. I had a whale of a portion of cod in beer batter with mushy peas and home cooked chips - delicious! My husband had crispy pork belly with chorizo and a chick pea cassoulet. Really wanted a dessert but just no room left! My little girls haddock goujons and chips was a great sized portion for a kids meal. Will definitely come back here when down visiting Alton Towers again. I'd advise to book as it obviously a very popular place!
