We ate here the first time with our 6 year old, when looking for good food in Crawley. It surpassed our expectations! The food was amazing and presented so beautifully. The owners were welcoming and friendly. We will definitely come again!

We ate here last night and really enjoyed ourselves and the food and the staff and the dogs and the rabbit. However, we were not told about the Wednesday meal deal, even though it is on an advertising board on the front patio. We only noticed it today when we returned for lunch. Before going, we looked online and saw... More

This is a great little find n the outskirts of Crawley. Staff were friendly and very accommodating when it came to finding a place to sit. A couple of locals even gave up their seats for us so we could sit inside together, i think that says it all about the friendly atmosphere! Food was plentiful and very fresh. Husband... More

We visited this pub on a "team day" for work. Firstly, having sat in the garden as it was quite a pleasant day but trying to ignore the stench of chip fat, we all waited up to an hour for our food to arrive and then it all came one meal at a time. The Chef was having a "bad... More

Joe P, Public Relations Manager at Royal Oak, responded to this review

Hi Kelly, sorry about bad experience, we were short that day due to staff sickness. Unfortunately our kitchen extractor does come it near bottom left side of garden, but there is normally plenty of other space well away from any odours. As for the dog mess, our garden is dog friendly but on this occasion it would appear that a... More
