Very good food at the Royal Oak. The vegetable lasagna with garlic bread was excellent & my husband enjoyed his steak & chips. Finished off with lovely sticky toffee pudding. Nice cosy pub with a pleasant atmosphere & friendly staff. Would definitely recommend.

A traditional country pub in pretty village of Nunnington. The new owners have just returned from Italy and their aim is to blend Yorkshire fare, using locally sourced produce with products from known farmers in Tuscany. They hope to achieve 'where Yorkshire meets Tuscany' with appetising sharing plates and dishes of the day using seasonal produce. They wish to continue serving local beers to the regulars and have a well selected wine list. Family Sunday lunch times (Two courses £14.95 And Three courses £17.95).
