Reviewed 11 April 2017

Stayed here recently, just for 1 night. Even before our visit staff were very helpful, and explained the facilities in full. Jane the landlady is a pet lover, so there is absolutely no problem taking your dog. They are made more than welcome. It is a dog lovers pub!
The Courtyard en-suite rooms are well furnished and modern, with fitted en suite and heating. Very tastefully decorated.
The pub is very traditional, (try the Doombar!) and staff very friendly and helpful.They even let you bring in your own food from the local restaurants and take away's.
Location is great, about a 5 minute walk to seafront. and town centre.
Overall a great place to stopover. Thanks Jane & staff for a very warm welcome!!

Room Tip: Rear rooms on Courtyard give you use of garden.

This was a one of. last minute booking for myself and family including Hector our family pet.
Straight to the point.
This is a wonderful place to go if you have pets.
Rm 3 was a family room one double and two single beds a nice size shower very warm and clean.
Away from the main pub but still ajoined a lovely patio area.
The main pub is a good old fashioned.
Darts.pool.family room come snug.
Loads of friendly dogs
Let's make this clear it does not do food only breakfast.
But it's has all the take away restaurant's your need within a 100 mtr walk
And you are welcome to bring back to the pub and eat at any table. plates knife and forks and sauces providid this is such a great saving on the wallet.
The landlady is awesome nothing is to much.
They made Hector very welcome including the pub dog dotty .
This is a good pub .
But please remember it's a sports type pub with all the sky sports so it does come with a few swear words from the locals.when watching sports.
But they do apologise if they see a family in the bar area .
The locals ae friendly .chatty .polite
So let's not judge a book by its cover.
Will definitely return.

slightly dated pub but the rooms in the courtyard were spacious and comfortable,no noise at night from the pub, breakfast was pretty average and a little over priced at £7
not really cheap £121 for a triple room

Room Tip: in the courtyard area away from the pub

About a mile out of town on the Dorchester Road. A bit of a walk but found it very welcoming by staff, the locals and a cute little dog. It is a deceptively large pub with sports television, pool and outside patio seating. We only visited for drinks but we are told that rooms are also available.

We booked in for one nights stay on Tuesday at the Royal Oak. We did arrive early and thought we would get the feel of the surroundings and have a drink at the bar. I explained to the man behind the bar that we were staying and he told us the room was ready and that we could book in early. We were pleasantly suprised to find our room was on ground level with patio areas outside. We smoke so this was a bonus! The room was very clean and fitted with everything you would need. In fact we enjoyed it so much, we decided to stay another night in the same room, thanks to the Manageress, Jane, who was very obliging. The situation of the pub is excellent, close to every take away you could think of and a Tesco Express. The bus stop is just outside the pub and costs £2 to take you into Weymouth. All in all a very enjoyable stay. Thank you.

Room Tip: Room 4 was the only room we saw.
