Stayed at the royal oak at the weekend for one night as a single traveler. Checking in was simple and no faff which is always a plus... the room was on the whole lovely... warm, clean, lovely bed. The TV worked and I couldn't hear the traffic outside so a top nights sleep.

Hi Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review. Really appreciate your comments and love when we get constructive feedback from people who like our venue. Royal Oak is a big space to fill and some times at first it can seem very dry until more people come in but it is something we are trying to work on. Thanks Mat Country Village Inns

We were doing a long bike ride and reached The Royal Oak in Settle, frozen, sodden but excited at the thought of a nice warm shower and a hearty meal. Sadly it was not meant to be. The ‘shower’ was a poxy attachment on the delightful mushroom coloured bath which was neither

Hi Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review. I'm sorry we didn't meet with your expecations and your comments have been taken on board. I'm sorry also that we couldn't accommodate you for evening meal due to be full, our menu is popular and on certain nights we can be fully booked with walk ins and party groups. Hopefully next time if you choose to stay with us you will have the experience that all other guests receive Thanks Mat Country Village Inns
