Booked last minute and nothing was too much trouble. We had a fantastic meal with great flavours. Even though it was fairly busy we were served quite promptly. Holly, Matty and the team doing a fantastic job. Look forward to eating there again soon.

Our party of six had an incredible birthday party here on Friday . We hadn't booked but we were made very welcome . The food was delicious the service was outstanding ,the young couple who are running this establishment are working so hard. I would recommend this place and certainly will return.

Enjoyed a wonderful meal here on a cold winters night. They layout of the pub is greats, since as part of a large (and quite loud) group I was conscious that we might be a little dominating - but there lots of smaller areas just off the main bar that can contain a group but retain the cosy local pub...

The Royal Oak in Eydon has long been a favourite of ours but over the years the food has either been amazing or pretty dire. Currently, although not amazing, the food is very good with an interesting range of dishes. The pub is small with intimate dining rooms leading off the main bar area. Very tastefully decorated in a minimalist... More

We visited the Royal Oak midweek for a family dinner with few expectations as I knew that the pub was under new management. I asked for a table in the snug when reserving over the phone and was told that this was not a problem but it could get a little cold in there. When we arrived we were warmly... More

We are lucky enough to have The Royal Oak as our local pub & have been regulars there for several years. I can honestly say, that whilst the food has always been of an exceptionally high standard, the current new management team have brought a breath of fresh air to the place. Their youth, enthusiasm, forward thinking & sheer hard... More

A really lovely old pub with excellent food well prepared and served, but what a noisy venue.The bar is a long passage running parallel with the dining rooms, it has a stone floor and when we visited was packed with drinkers having a great time but shouting at one another, why is it people cannot talk anymore ? Unfortunately this... More

Great pubs in the area are far and few between, and so my recent trip to the Royal Oak was a very pleasant surprise. A friend booked it and managed to secure us a private room; the pub has an intriguing layout with a number of different rooms, each having their own personality. The general atmosphere was very warm and... More
