We booked a table for the birthday of a family member and had the most amazing Sunday dinner. We found the food to be amazing quality and the chef has an exquisite twist on even the most common meals which I feel makes this pub unique.

We were in a hurry and chose to visit on Tuesday. Delighted to find a choice of homemade pies with mash and liquor. Beautifully served by the fire and in good time by attentive staff. We intend to return and take more time to indulge in the full menu.

We opted for the 'Royal' roast option where we could have a mixture of meats and were not disappointed. The portion... More

The pub had a Burns menu running in parallel with the normal offerings. We started with Cullen Skink soup, followed by traditional Haggis Neeps and Tatties and a fantastic Cranachan sweet to finish. Absolutely brilliant evening.

The bar standards which dipped under previous management have greatly improved recently although I have not eaten there for a while. Everything I've heard from friends and family have been positive so I will give them another try very soon. Keep up the great work guys. :) .

Had a fantastic evening in the Royal Oak catching up with a few old friends. There is a great selection of beers available and a fantastic new menu which was very varied and original making decision time very difficult! (The game pie was truly delicious) The staff were all very polite and helpful throughout the evening, which all in all... More

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.
