please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

First open pub on the Inn Way to North Yorkshire Moors. Most are closed on Monday Lunch times but the Royal Oak is open.

York Guzzler and Black Sheep on offer. Both in good condition. Nice traditional terraced pub overlooking the village green.

Good beer in nice surroundings. It's food-oriented but we were able to get drinks twice on a Saturday with no problems.

We too were confronted by the strange dog policy, as mentioned in the review below, we visited regardless. It's a pub serving good pubby food at a reasonable price, certainly more focussed on dining than drinkers. Most of the pub is given over to dining with only a small drinking area. Black Sheep on tap, I tried the 'Golden Sheep' only for it to be undrinkable, it was exchanged with the minimum of fuss. Overall: Decent pub food, not one for the drinkers. Rating: 6.

This is the sister pub to pub in Fadmoor. They have an incredibly confusing policy on dogs in pub. You can bring them in if you book a table in the dining room but they are not allowed in the bar:bizarre to let them in a dining room (but only if you book) and not the bar. I was confused so rang back and the staff reiterated this frankly odd policy. Didn't visit, put off by weird rules.

Ate there several times in the mid-late '90s - always very good.

I think it's changed ownership recently. Excellent bar meals, good value, friendly staff.

Silktork is exactly right here,we arrived on a Sunday lunchtime to be regarded as a bit of a nuisance as we were not dining. Also it IS very prim and proper. Having said that, it also was very popular.

Uncomfortably neat and painfully tidy country pub. Well, the way it has been set up, this is now a restaurant in which drinkers are allowed a little space near the fireplace - as long as they are not too messy and don't put the diners off their meal.
