Can I just Thank the management, staff and chef for an amazing Christmas Day lunch. The food was exceptional and well worth the price. The staff were very attentive and made the experience very relaxing not rushing us to eat and leave. Think we will doing the same next year 10 out of 10
We could not fault our Christmas Day lunch. We enjoyed every course and the food was cooked to perfection.
The staff were very attentive and nothing was too much bother.
We had time in between each course to let out food settle and we were not rushed.
Next time we’ll book earlier as we would’ve liked to have stayed a little longer. We were enjoying it so much the time flew by.
It was definitely value for money!
Thank you Royal Oak for a lovely afternoon.
We had our Christmas Dinner at the Royal Oak. The three waiteres were spot on with the service.
The 3 course Christmas Dinner was delicious.

I requested gluten free yorkshire puddings which was offered on request, I can say they were really good. I will be going back. Thank you
A lovely Sunday Roast on our honeymoon week. Yorkshire puddings the size of my hat!
Amazing as always lovely food and amazing service
Only the 'set menu' is available and the cost of the 2 course and 3 course meals are clearly marked. What is not clear however is that not all the food on the menu qualifies for the set menu! I ordered steak and only later found out this did not qualify (apparently each meal has to have SM after it to qualify). So that was disappointing. But the steak was awful, really chewy and gristly.
The pub is nice and has a good atmosphere, but the food was very disappointing, and expensive for what it was.
Friendly staff and yummy food in a comfortable atmosphere.
Fantastic service from all the waitresses. Unfortunately our food did come to us cold but the staff were very apologetic and they fixed the situation immediately making the whole experience very enjoyable. Food was delicious especially the jam sponge dessert.
A very nice Sunday Lunch. Lovely surroundings. Excellent Service.
We didn’t eat here but the overall pub experience was second to none, we even booked to go back later in the day. Lovely, clean, atmospheric pub
