Good portions of well presented meals enjoyed by all seven of the party.
Furnishings and decor looked in need of attention but we went to share a family meal which was a good experience.

Normally the Sunday roast is top notch but have to admit to walking away feeling somewhat disappointed.
Overcooked potatoes and no real apology when pointed out to the staff and the meat portion was smaller than previous experiences there
Shame really

So on the whole was ok but nothing to write home about

If that friend knows that good pubs are busy and noisier on Suday lunchtime....yes, no problem. We asked for a table on the side...that wish was fullfilled. The food was good, the portions big so that even the male members of our party were more than contented.
The only problem could be finding a parking space...we were lucky, our son parked in a nearby street.
That actually speaks for the pub...it is popular!

Good food & service. It was a mid way point to meet friends. Booked because of good reviews on Trip Advisor. It was midweek & unfortunately very quiet. Would go again.

Saturday evening meal. Very good pub food - starters main and dessert. Landlord is great. It’s open bar so don’t expect quiet romantic setting. A real pub with real “regulars” as well as a great food - you may like or hate that. Yes I would go back.

We went for a Sunday roast after having some really nice food there a few weeks ago. Unfortunately the roast dinner wasn't great. The Yorkshire pudding was burnt and the chicken was dry. We will still return to eat but not for a roast.

Excellent food, above average of any pub or restaurant in the local area in my experience. Steaks were particularly good. Great service in pleasant surroundings. Highly recommended.

The RoyalOak is one of the best pubs in Farnham area and my particular favourite. I have been many times, the food is excellent and you can have small portions of some meals. Always a good atmosphere and a quiz every Sunday. They take care over people with allergies. Good value too.

Sunday roast was excellent with both pork and beef as an option, if you can't decide on just one. Arrived quickly and hot, home cooked, in season vegetables, and the deserts were good to.

Superb staff service, the food is very well priced and is made with exceptional quality (the taste is not processed in the slightest).
And it's dog friendly - what more can be said than that.

A pleasant traditional pub with a fireplace and friendly staff. On the day I went it was quite busy with most of the tables reserved. My starter was a scotch egg with a delicious sauce, watercress and crispy bacon. The egg was perfectly cooked. I found it quite difficult to select a main and eventually chose the chicken breast. The accompanying vegetables were well cooked. However the dish lacked punch. I realise that this is a traditional pub serving traditional food but that does not mean that depth of flavour and taste should be ignored. Maybe just one or two more experimental dishes would make it a pub I would readily return to on a regular basis.

Very nice ‘ sunday ‘ lunch. Although had to wait a while for food it came freshly cooked and hot. Nice to have chicken breast in chicken burger than usual breaded chicken. Very good puddings. Baileys creme brulee small but deadly.
Service good but we were near the main door so got draught every time it opened.
