We spent New Year's Eve at the Kings Arms opposite the Royal Oak(both pubs are owned by same people) Yet another warm welcome from all the staff. The entertainment package was well worth it. The three course meal...

Have visited Cartmel on several occasions and often eat at the Royal Oak. When we decided to spend Christmas in the Lakes the first choice for our Turkey lunch had to be the delightful country pub. We were not disappointed. The food was tasty and full of flavour, the service was fantastic and it was really good value for money....

Very poor. Gravy covered meal, not served in jug. Not everyone likes over salted gravy! Also we were told door closed at one pm for Xmas diners only, yet throughout our meal people coming in. This meal cost us £200 !!! Not happy! We won't recommend.

My husband and I were staying just outside of Cartmel and visited The Royal Oak lastnight for dinner. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly and they were Dog friendly too. The food was great and the portions were massive. The only slight downside was it was a just little bit pricey. The place had a great atmosphere though and...

The beast burger is a must if your hungry ;-) All the meals were cooked well and were large portions. The prices are...
