Had a great lunch with friends. It was a lovely meal with excellent service. All the food we had was of a good quality and on the whole was perfectly cooked. There was a slight problem with one meal but it was addressed immediately and without hesitation. A first class restaurant. I will certainly return.

We called in at The Royal Oak on Friday 13 January for a bite of lunch in our way to HPB Merlewood, just down the road. The welcome was warm and friendly, the pub immaculately clean (including the toilets), cosy, comfortable and well-decorated in a subtle, modern style. We had a cheese and Westmorland chutney sandwich and a steak ciabatta,... More

Spent a fabulous New Year's Eve here. A faultless evening with outstanding food. Menu was first class and varied. Nothing was hurried and the service was excellent.

Had lunch there several weeks ago. The food below average and not very hot...service slow. All in all, the whole experience was nothing to write home about. Wouldn`t recommend...much better places to eat at a more reasonable cost within a short drive away.

Had a meal there with my wife. I cannot fault the staff or the pub at all. However the caramelised onions in the gravy with the sausage were far too sweet and consistency was far too thick. It spoilt the whole meal as it was too much sugar by far. It meant you couldn't taste the herbs and spices in... More

Visited on a Friday in November. Reasonably busy and in busier times of year booking essential. Good variety on menu, service excellent, food quality good. No complaints and overall better than we expected.

My sister and brother in law treated us to a beautiful weekend in the Lake district to celebrate my husband's 60th birthday. Included was a meal at the Royal Oak. Two of us had the duck which was beautifully cooked and tasted amazing with a beautiful orange sauce. Two had the sirloin steak. The steak was lovely, we had both... More

Inspite of a number of good reviews from previous guests at our accommodation, our hosts and ourselves were not bowled over by our dining experience at the Royal Oak. The food was average, the fish being not particularly well cooked, and the service slow: We weren't in a hurry so it really didn't matter too much but one just wonders... More
