Our final stop in Devon was the Royal Oak. It took us much longer to get here than normal, as the main road into the village was closed. Whilst it was already dark, we could appreciate that this was the archetypal village pub situated in the centre of the village overlooking the village green. There is a lounge bar which served food and a more basic and traditional public bar. Staff were friendly. 3 regular beers are Dartmoor Jail Ale & Meavy Oak Ale & St Austell Proper Job. The guest beer was Otter Amber. Ciders were Hunt's Wobbler & Barn Screecher & Sandford Orchards Old Kirton. They also had Black Rat Perry. Certainly a very nice pub. But I did have high expectations after reading reviews.

Everything has already been said about this pub has been said and it is true.
World class setting and area, beautiful to sit outside on a summers day.
My father and i just had two pints halfway through our walk, if we did'nt have the car we could easily have stayed for 4 or 5 and caught the bus home!

One of the best pubs and settings in the country

I have visited this pub several times in the last four years since first being taken there . No matter what the weather , time of year or anything else it has the feel of a proper country pub . Fine selection of ales , always in good condition , food looks good and the staff are always friendly . Locals and tourists seem to mix easily and overall a great place to go . I make a point of it every time I am in the area .

This is a great little pub in a great setting and even better allows dogs in the bar. They serve the a good range of ciders and ales not the normal draughts avaliable in most pubs.
I think the food is the weakest point, its ok but in my opinion over priced when compared to other pubs which are within a few miles, also the menu does not seem to change very often. Steaks are of a high quality but the battered fish is not great. The batter is to heavy which detracts any flavour or taste from the fish which was very disappointing when costs are considered.
In short, great venue, great ales and ciders but could do better food wise.

Last Thursday I popped in for a quick pint after a cycle ride. I selected the Dartmoor Jail Ale Bitter but while the barmaid was pulling the pint, the barrel ran out. She asked me if I would mind waiting and I said I wouldn't. She called the guvnor who went to change the barrel. he then pulled through a quantity of beer before sampling it and holding it up to the light to check the quality. he did this a couple of times.The barmaid then pulled me a completely fresh pint and when I proffered the money she declined to accept it, saying that I had had to wait while they changed the barrel. How refreshingly different from many other pubs I could mention when this happens, where there is no attempt to change the barrel (or it is changed but not pulled through properly)and an alternative is offered, often costing more, with no apology. The beer from the new barrel was excellent by the way. I wasn't there for a meal or to spend lots of money yet I was treated like a valued customer - I will be back on the strength of this ecellent customer service.
