I had the the sweet potato coconut chickpea curry which was obviously fresh and had a bit of a kick to it (often vegetarian offering are bland at best), my partner had broccoli and cheese bake with a section of fresh vegetable -...

This place is terrible for food, avoid unless absolutely necessary. I had sweet potato coconut chickpea curry. Not good! We only came here to meet friends on there suggestion and I would not return under any circumstance. Service pleasant enough. Everything about it food wise is wrong though. It's actually quite pricey as well, ingredients and quality of cooking on... More

Have frequented this pub on and off for some years now - have only ever had one meal that was just not as good as usual but have returned since - no problems. Might be a bit slow but a country pub in beautiful surroundings is not exactly where you would expect to be in and out in no time.... More

This response has been written in anger and I would ask that it be regarded as hostile in the extreme. Rude behaviour will never be tolerated here at The Royal Oak and threats from whoever, will always result in the same response. Please go elsewhere. We look forward to welcoming back the many customers who appreciate the service we have... More

We stopped on a weeknight without booking, which did not cause a problem. If you go around sunset, you will get a fantastic view of the sun going down over the hills. The service was a bit slow but the view distracted us while we waited. The food was very good and the portions were huge - the staff were... More

Thank you for taking the time to comment, I will work on my 100 meter sprint times and hopefully speed up service. When the weather gets too cold outside, come indoors and snuggle up to our glowing hot open fire or underseat heating in the bar area! looking forward to greeting you back again soon. More

The Royal Oak Regrets the need to exclude members of the public who react in a negative fashion and as our most senior waitress was at a loss for responses to this table's reaction to food which had just been temperature checked it was decided that the food be returned to the kitchen and the order cancelled. This was reported... More

Dear trip adviser community, Sadly I'm back again to respond to negative reviews. As I have stated before we are painfully honest about waiting times. When your food arrives, we ask if all is well. that's when you need to tell us if we got it wrong! so we can put it right. In this case we didn't get anything... More
