Response from Royal K, General Manager at The Royal Oak Hotel

I as General Manager received and email from you, in which you made threats to the effect that unless we responded with a proposal to you of recompense you would write a detrimental review, We regarded this email as tantamount to blackmail with menaces and we decided not to respond. We then received a further threatening email with the same vain giving us 10 days to respond, again it was decided not to react to that threat but rather await to see. Tripadvisor was not designed as a vehicle for use to blackmail hotels and restaurants, but rather give and honest view of the accommodation etc. As you have now carried out your threat, our response is, we will pass your threatening email on to the authorities, and should they wish to take action we will supply your contact details, copies of your threatening emails are available to any customers present or future to view, by contacting the Manager at The Royal Oak Hotel, people can make up their own minds.

This place has a nice relaxed feel and the back bar was friendly and cosy. Annoyingly they ran out of Amstel and Guinness but they had had a busy function on Saturday so that’s was understand

Thank you for writing a review of your stay and i can only apologise that we ran out of Amstel and |Guinness but this was purely because of the overwhelming success of a charity fundraiser we held prior to your arrival. I hope it will not deter you from returning in the future. kind Regards

Booked table in the week for Sunday Lunch. We were greeted as soon as we walked in by Hollie who asked us where we would like to sit. Hollie was very attentive to our needs and nothing was too much trouble. Starters, Mains, Deserts, Cheese were all excellent - Josh was brillian

Do they have parking at the hotel from the photos I don't see any parking .
There is a car park at the back under a little arch to the side of the place. It is a charge of £5 for the length of your stay.
