Fabulous food but some was left untouched as the portions were huge. The staff were attentive enough but, as teenage girls do, tended to congregate to chat in the bar area. We highly recommend the fish and 3x cooked chips - fabulous!

Food was great. A very tasty seafood curry. Early bird deal so very good value. Plenty of choice on menu for all tastes. A wide variety of ales, lagers and wines was available for customers. Service was also spot on. Very friendly and courteous staff. No long waits for food on a pretty busy night.

I had dinner here today and it was great! I was recommended this place by my lovely host Lynne from the Castle farm house B&B, who told me lots of her guests found the food and the place very good. Tonight I tried it myself and I can say it is a lovely place with a nice, warm, easy going... More

We have been here as a group before - last time nearly a year ago. They must have a new chef because the menu has become fairly pub standard whereas before it was interesting and diverse with lots of fish. The meal this time was disappointing - I had a curry which was virtually flavourless. The pub was full and... More

I went for a meal here with friends yesterday and was very disappointed with the steaks both my husband and I had. There was more fat than meat and both very tough (perhaps one of the worst steaks I've ever eaten) and we both had the more expensive steak. On the board it explains we're they get their meat from.... More

I went with my friends on the 15th and we were pleasantly surprised at the prices and the portion sizes. A recommendation from our B&B host, the Royal Oak was both welcoming and charming. The menu was so varied, with a choice of both a bar snacks menu and a main dinner menu, my friends and I had difficulty choosing... More

Here for a business lunch. The restaurant part was virtually empty so good for a meeting but not for their business?! However, service was very efficient and friendly with a good choice of food on the menu + specials. The food came within a good time and was very tasty and well cooked. Good value for money.

Usually go for a drink but have eaten here. To be fair, the food is ok and the staff in the restaurant are friendly enough but the man behind the bar (the manager/owner) has to be the grumpiest person in the world. Having been in there at least a dozen times, I've never had a "hello" from him, let alone... More
