Lunch for four. Nice friendly atmosphere. Great variety on menu plus a variety of daily specials offering excellent value for money. We all chose from the daily specials board having two courses. First course of homemade tomato and basil soup served with hot focaccia bread....More

Had a lovely Sunday roast here as a family of four. I had prawn and crayfish cocktail, beef roast dinner and the Apple and BlackBerry crumble, all of it was top quality and service was great. The waitress was lovely. Top meal.

We fund The Royal Oak pub by chance when returning from Dungeness. Fantastic food, really lovely service and pretty garden. We had a roast, prawn cocktail and haloumi salad. Wonderful! Highly recommended.
