Ours is and will be early dinning, given the recent release from outdoor dinning it will take awhile to build up levels of activity and hence conviviality noise

Simple pub food done well! They don’t mess around pretending to be a gastro pub so you’ll get your food on a plate. I think the prices are pretty reasonable, steak was £20 but this included veg👍🥦. Service is always good here, but informal.

The food was absolutely delicious. Very generous portions and would definitely recommend the mouthwatering vegetarian lasagne (definitely freshly made definitely not from a packet) and the indulgent rich sticky toffee pudding.

Staff were very polite and helpful.

Very good hygiene measures in place with current Covid Pandemic.

Will definitely be visiting again and highly recommend it.

I have been to The Royal Oak about six times in the past few months, usually for lunch, but also for dinner.
I cannot find fault with the food. Everything has always been absolutely delicious. It appears that all meals are homemade and very fresh, big portions and great value kids meals too.
The staff are also very friendly and efficient. Would highly recommend.

We are lucky enough to be within walking distance to five very good pubs which all serve good food, wines and real ales. Some are a little more expensive than others. However, the best steaks that are always cooked to your liking and melt in your mouth are served at the Royal Oak. The Sea Bass is also a lovely well prepared and tasty dish.
Give it a try, you won't be disappointed.

Very disappointed. Especially during these times you would think a venue would have a welcoming atmosphere but sadly this was not the case.

We literally felt like the outsiders in the local pub wearing a neon sign on our heads.

Food was really disappointing. We didn't even stay for an hour.

Open View booking was not received for us and multiple others. As a result the restaurant was unable to accommodate with all tables at full capacity, and we - with a small child - were turned away having made a booking in advance.

Lunched here for the very first time & I'll certainly be back. Track & trace paperwork was in place, tables at a good distance apart, staff wearing masks making the whole experience relaxing.
The staff were welcoming & attentive. The food was very good value for the money. Some items on the menu included smaller portions which was a plus......meaning room for the dessert !!!
Thank you The Royal Oak !!

If you're looking for an amazing steak, look no further. Best sirloin I've ever had. Had the Scotch Eggs as a starter too, which were very tasty as well.
