You have to park around the corner in a public car park but it is free. The room had two sky lights without blinds so you are woken up early with the natural light outside. We stayed on a Saturday night when the Inn is at is busiest. It was popular with the locals so much so there was a party which went on till late with music abit to loud for our liking as the room was not that sound proof. The meals in the evening were very good in the bar area and reasonably priced.
I did complain about our sheet which was a terry towel old sheet which was not only rough and stained ( why spend thousands on a renovation and put an old sheet on the bed!) but it was changed within 10 minutes. The lampshade was full of cobwebs which shows the cleaning was not that thorough.
Having said that we did get a nice room and good service for a very reasonable price.

We stayed at the Royal Oak Inn for a long weekend on the occasion of our first wedding anniversary. Our room was great, spacious and comfortable. The owners/staff were really nice people, very friendly and helpful. The pub on the ground floor had a great atmosphere and award-winning ales (which we really enjoyed!). The food was absolutely excellent: from our generous quality breakfast to the sophisticated pub dinners (including some pub classics with a twist, but also some unexpected delicacies!) But the greatest revelation was the upstairs restaurant: we had a masterchef-standard 3-course meal with all sorts of extras and wine for an incredible price! The chef is really inspired and talented and the service was perfect!
We would absolutely recommend the Royal Oak Inn for a stay or for food or - preferably - for both! This place is a hidden gem!

We had a night stop at the Royal Oak on our way to a wedding in Cornwall. The hotel is situated just south of Dartmoor national park so we after a nice day out we stopped in South Brent. The hotel rooms are nice and clean and the staff (ownesr) are very friendly.

We had 2 teenagers with us who ate at the downstairs bar which thye enjoyed. My wife and I ate a little later upstairs at Charlys restaurant and the food was very nice indeed.

I would say that the town has nothing to offer for teenagers but for a nights stay it was in the perfect location for us.
