What appears to be a pretty ordinary country pub is the home to this Italian restaurant run by real Italians who know how to cook. The menu is not overly adventurous as they are just starting up but what they do is excellent quality and delivered by attentive, caring staff who aim to please.

My husband and I ate here last night. We both enjoyed our meals and found portion sizes perfect. The staff were friendly and helpful. Unfortunately there was only one other couple in, hopefully more people will try it. We will go back again.

Five knights' of the road, who cover close to 250,000 miles a year and eat in decent restaurants all over the UK, Ireland and Europe, ate in the new Italian "ristorante" last Friday. All had different meat and fish dishes and all rated the food excellent. The newly refurbished pub is top notch too.

Just reopened, and having met the owner who said they were going to try to improve trade we booked for evening meal, and as locals hoped it would be another good place to eat. Turned out to be a bad experience. My wife had the Salmon and I the Sirloin Steak with grilled veg and plate of chips to share.... More

The Royal Oak has been a traditional pub for years. The pub has changed hands frequently in the past 12 years which is most likely related to the disappointing pub food. The pub has changed hands again two months ago. The bar area is the same - a cosy room with an open fire. The restaurant now serves mainly Indian... More

A proper proper pub. No pretence, food that everyone was pleased with. We were driving from Malvern to Croome and hoped for a bit on the way through. Upton was a bit busy (it was easter weekend!) and this had the best varied selection for a family and service was pretty quick too!

After reading some of the reviews on laterooms and trip advisor we were very sceptical about what to expect. Fortunately we went with open minds and were very pleasantly surprised.
