user reviews of Royal Oak, Castor Village

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

After 3 fairly decent pubs, the Royal Oak was my fourth stop. I was expecting much more. But this is a very average place and when you have a pub as good as the Prince of Wales Feathers up the road, you probably wouldn't choose to come here. I was surprised to see it in the current Good Beer Guide. Tribute, Landlord and JHB were the 3 ales. I was the only customer and the young barmaid seemed a little bored. The interior was nice. But overall this was a disappointment.

On the recommendation of a friend who lives in the village, I booked a Sunday lunch at The Royal Oak for my wife and I and two friends up from London. We were all very pleasantly surprised by the whole experience. The food was piping hot and we all thoroughly enjoyed our meals. We were in the best seats in the pub (next to the main window) and the courteous staff left us to spend time chatting in a completely unhurried and very convivial way. Our friends from London were impressed by the beers, the food, the pub, and the village itself...... and they want to return sometime. On top of all that, the weather was superb. A very agreeable few hours. Were we just lucky?

Attractive, thatched pub on the main road through this quaint village. Sitting at one of the tables in the small courtyard garden at the front of the pub and looking over the cobbled street and stone cottages is very pleasant.

The pub itself is very pleasant and has three different bar areas, one of which looks like an old cottage kitchen with itís low ceilings, red tiled floor and cream dresser. The main bar is also quite cosy with a beamed ceiling and a chalk board menu hung up on the wall. I didnít see anyone eating though, I think perhaps they only do food on a lunch time. The landlord didnít seem to have much personality, but then itís the sort of pub where everybody knows everybody else, he may well be different with the locals.

Beers on offer were Woodfordeís Wherry, Adnams Southwold and Everardís Sunchaser. Tribute was also chalked up on the guest ales board, but this appeared to be off. The only cider was Strongbow, unfortunately.

Not only a nice looking pub Rob & Jacquie work hard to present the pub, lunchtime food and drink superbly. Regular ales are Black Sheep and Batemans. Frequent guest ales are Timothy Taylor Landlord, Adnams Ales, Woodfordes Ales and Everards Tiger it is unheard of for them to be less than perfect. Sunday Lunches are very popular and Great Value for Money, during the winter quiz nights are on Wednesday from 9pm.

Nice looking pub.... and that's about it I'm afraid.
