As expected a great view (ask for a table in front of their picture window overlooking the valley), really nice main course and one of the best sticky toffee puddings I have ever...

Had a lovely 2 day stay at the Royal Oak. We were greeted with a pleasant welcome and taken to a lovely spacious room with beautiful views. In the morning we were treated to a delicious breakfast in a delightful breakfast room. The sausages were amazing! The inn has a good selection of cask ales, the Viking was very tasty!...
