We stayed there for a couple of nights last summer and really enjoyed our stay. The food was excellent, and our room at the top of the house was extremely comfortable.. The situation is perfect, close to the Lake and the fact that there was parking was a bonus as parking in Windermere is always a little difficult.. We shall... More

Teatime at the Royal Oak, to say it's midwinter still quite busy! A roaring fire to welcome you though is a nice sight in a cold winters night. Though the menu is comprehensive there was onlyone thing to have, steak & mushroom pie, veg, chips. We both went for this and what a joy it was, huge chunks of tender... More

Had a great meal, plentiful well cooked food at a great price. Friendly atmosphere with a log fire. Only downside was it was a bit cold even with the log fire on.

We arrived on Friday 3rd Feb and were greeted by Abby, friendly from the start. The evening staff, Kirsten and her husband (sorry we didn't catch your name) were absolutely amazing and went out of their way to make our stay great. The room was cosy and perfect, the food was amazing, we are still talking about the short rib... More

Visited for a quick lunch. Hot beef baguette was filled to capacity with a side of chips and the soup of the day was lovely. Sizable portions, good prices and great service. Cant ask for much more!

We have eaten in here before and its just good pub food. Its nice and relaxed with a lovely roaring fire. The food is just traditional pub food but nice and tasty and the bar staff are all friendly. Good place for a bite to eat.

Came in to watch the football and have some lunch. Food was good, and it quickly became very busy. Would recommend

Stayed here for one night. Rooms clean, and has everything you need; although a little small. We ate in the pub for the evening... Good British food, at reasonable prices! Staff are brilliant; very friendly and helpful... especially Paul who checked us in! All in all a good value pub/B&B for £60 for 2.

Decided on this place as it had something on the menu we both liked. Also the biggest plus point was its dog friendly. Lovely fire in the middle of the pub, which warmed the place up just enough. Good size portions with the food and tasted great. Recommended to all expecially dog owners.
