Stayed in a cottage nearby. We found the food very good especially the Sunday lunch. Good value. We were made to feel very welcome as was our dog Ruby she was given fresh water every time we visited! There is also a doggy menu. Would highly recommend.

Recently a group of 35 ramblers had an evening meal here after a pleasant day of strenuous walking. What a pleasure to arrive in this cosy welcoming public house. Because we were a large group each persons name and their pre-requested meal was noted on a card and given to them. These cards were then collected from each table separately,...

Pleasant country pub with restaurant. Nice place to stop for a pub meal. We had piping hot soup and tasty pulled pork sandwich. Just a little out of the pleasant town with easy parking and convenient for the A1.

I was given a very warm reception by both staff & the regulars. A very clean & tidy establishment with a good choice of Cumbrian ales served with a homely feel. The food was exceptional, and a fantastic choice to choose from off the menu. I can recommend the chicken with roasted garlic & the cheeseboard. The Royal Oak is...

Visited The Royal oak for lunch on Easter Monday after driving down from Scotland. My daughter in law had booked a table for 5 for 12 mid day. We arrived 10 minutes early and were told by a member of staff very curtly that we were too early and informed us our table was not ready!!! Very unfriendly reception. We...

This isn't a gastro pub so the food isn't the greatest but it is good pub grub and our 4 meals over 2 nights were more than acceptable with different choices of specials every night. The lounge bar doesn't have much seating but the restaurant area is fine. The term restaurant is a little misleading in that you order at...

I like the radio controlled staff and the food is excellent. We have visited the restaurant weekly at least for the last seven weeks. Wednesday night is steak night and there's plenty to eat. Added to that it is within walking distance so drink is not a problem. Walking up the hill is though.

Stayed for one night in the cottage which was spotless and very spacious. All staff are very friendly, hardworking and efficient. Had dinner and breakfast the next day and the food was delicious on both occasions. Very busy restaurant and bar with a good atmosphere. Will definitely return.
