Very few choices on cocktails. Tried to charge for loads of drinks we didn’t have.
The drinks were lovely and the music was great but sadly the service let them down. It was very hard to get the staffs attention. We were sat with no drinks for a long time.
Brilliant live Jazz n friendly staff. Nice pint of Guineas.
Excellent service - lovely ambience
Already booked for our next visit
I didn’t eat on this occasion so rating not relevant for food. Overall enjoyable evening although I do find it annoying that after spending over £150 I was told I had to vacate as the table was booked. I pre-booked the bar from 4 and wasn’t told that when I booked. I think the booking form should make it clear that the booking has an end time. Staff were pleasant and attentive - table service does slow down ordering but the staff dealt with this well.
Great place to eat and drink. Highly recommend this venue
Booked a table for the England game and the staff did a great job of keeping everybody watered. TV view OK. Pizzas were disappointing though, both far too salty and my Rock the Parma had zero rocket!
Excellent Service and Food while watching the England v Germany game.
Dropped in for drinks only, greet and meet was quick, service was well too. Cocktail offers were a good price and were great.
Lovely place for a Saturday afternoon cocktail or 2! Great atmosphere x
The pub was amazing, love the design / ambience and feel of the look of it. The pizzas were outstanding.
However the service left something to be desired. The waitress wearing a black dress and converse boots was fairly polite, but was very abrupt and would often leave before we had finished talking.
The male waiter with swept over fringe was in such a mood, and acted like he didn’t want to be there.
We went in for dinner and although the ambience would have been great a bit later on, it was too much for dinner at 7pm.
The waitress with the very long blonde hair was really nice, which redeemed the service side of things.
I actually thought the booking I had made was for the restaurant, so maybe making this clearer on your website would be great!
Excellent Service, Staff and Atmosphere.
Fab service, great outdoor seating. Great deal on the cocktails.
My evening at the Royal Oak Was pleasant but Service was very slow. Waiting quite a while to be served and when served orders were not out through properly which meant we was waiting for food which we thought had been ordered but it hadn’t. With no app to order off, it was quite hard to get the attention of the staff when the music was quite loud and we was tucked away in the corner so not in eye vision.
On the other hand All the staff was lovely and the booking process was easy. Very accommodating.
Always a great, friendly service. Definitely recommend it for Gins and cocktails.
Clean, efficient, friendly staff, great drinks promos and lovely pizza.
Really good food, superb drinks, great price and friendly staff!
Sunday roast was really nice.
We spent the afternoon & evening there.
Table service was quick
Really lovely afternoon where staff could not be more accommodating and friendly. We had pizza which was delicious 🤤 and drank a few cocktails and was very happy with our drinks and service. Thanks Guys
Very enjoyable but would have liked a Long Island Iced Tea on the 2 for £10 menu like you used to. All other pubs offer this.
It’s a lovely pub brilliant atmosphere an staff couldn’t of been more welcoming or helpful xx many thanx
Table wasn’t ready when we arrived as other people still in it. Didn’t sit down until about 20 mins later. Was offered a free round of drinks which turn out to be a roly poly shot which was pretty disappointing would have rather had our first round of cocktails free!!
The best selection of pizzas made to order at great prices.
Nice pub great staff and relax atmosphere for a first date
They honestly couldn’t do enough for us, the service was fantastic. They were so generous, cocktails were great and pizzas we’re so tasty. They had a rowdy group of women to attend to but were so considerate of my partner and I. Will absolutely be back soon.
We pre-booked a table for a few drinks on a weekday afternoon to celebrate a birthday. The staff were attentive and polite. Music was good and they even put the snooker on for my husband. We’ll definitely be back! 😁
Very warm and friendly welcome by the team at The Royal Oak. Limited on space outside, but none the less utilising what was available to the maximum! Very tasty pizza and good, friendly service.
Wishing the team all the best for a busy, and more prosperous year ahead!
Great service and ambience as always
Pre booked the table for the outdoor area. Great service. Very welcoming.
Lovely pizzas and a nice couple of pints on Christmas Eve. Well laid out with distancing in mind and staff were attentive.
Food was disappointing. Hadn’t been told that the menu was only pizza. The so called 9 inch pizza was more like a 6inch. The tuna flatbread made me ill for a week. Cocktails were disappointing on Christmas drinks menu. Christmas Eve should always be a special Celebration.
Pizza was great!
Service was good.
Quiet in there but probably due to Covid
every thing about the royal oak is excellent. The jazz is also excellent.
Another lovely relaxed afternoon! The staff were lovely and couldn’t do enough for us. The food was very tasty, we tried the new Dirty Fries sharer, we did find these were slightly pricey for what you got, but overall a small price to pay for a fab afternoon!
A very nice atmosphere, the food was good and the staff could not do enough for you.
Lovely relaxing atmosphere on sunday afternoon with great blues music. Decor and Christmas decorations very tasteful.
Great experience and an overall great time couldn’t ask for more and the service was exceptional
A pleasant night here on Friday 11th. Kept to the Covid guidelines really well, friendly staff - good all round.
Lovely pub with friendly, welcoming and efficient staff. Great food and a vast array of excellent and imaginative cocktails and wines. The Royal Oak is also home to 'Jazz on the Corner', the pub's live music scene, featuring some of the finest jazz musicians in the region and, indeed, the UK. A truly 5 star establishment!
Great space to meet with friends and family, whether it’s a drink or their amazing roast. Dan & Tash are super friendly. Nice mix of being a restaurant & bar.
