This is an excellent "Pub with Rooms" - friendly, helpful staff, clean well equipped room with comfortable bed, an excellent breakfast and all at a very reasonable price. Would recommend and will stay again when in area.

All the staff at the Royal Oak were kind and attentive and the food was delicious. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it for friendliness and for being in such a great location, close to the castle and on the square.

The menu choice is extensive and it offers good wholesome...
