Always a favourite place to eat when we visit Bromyard: a lovely location on the downs; cosy interior; great food and warm and friendly service. Nice selection of beers and wine too.

Visited The Royal Oak for a family meal. Amazing menu choices. We all ordered something different and each meal was first class. From taste to presentation,we were not disappointed. The Bar staff were very welcoming and helpful. Thank you for a lovely evening.
