The Royal Oak
Fabulous Royal Oak Pub
3rd stay in 3 weeks, this time was pleasure not business as Sonia (owner along with Ian) invited me Back for a start of summer ‘Do’ had a brilliant time and was made to feel like part of the family :) know I’ll be back and back for years to come ...

Snowed in but AMAZING STAY!!!! :))))))
Got snowed in at this pub with rooms. Couldn’t have been ‘stuck’ in a better place, what hospitality from Sonia, Ian and Sonia’s friend Julie who was staying at the same time. From helping to dig a path to get in the car park to digging out a path to get out and everything in between I couldn’t have been in a better more friendly place. The food was lovely, plentiful and reasonably priced. Being a lone female contractor it really helped when I couldn’t get into work the following day and Sonia waived the overnight fee as she knew I wouldn’t get paid being self employed. These are the kind of people they are ...wonderful to say the least. I was actually sorry to leave as I felt really looked after. Would not hesitate to recommend this place to stay even if not snowed in! The rooms have everything the business traveller needs and if you were short of something I’m sure Sonia or Ian would sort you out. Looking forward to staying again hopefully this time in the summer....thank you so much for everything you did Sonia, Ian and Julie x

Real British pub .Value for money
A real friendly country pub surrounded by beautiful country, and large comfortable bedroom. Large plates of good home cooked tasty food at very reasonable price. Besides good beer,great bottled red wine for £11 which is very hard to find in UK.
