The Royal Oak Inn

The Perfect Dartmoor Hideaway For Drinking And Dining The Royal Oak Inn is a free house situated within the Dartmoor National Park and is a former 15th-century church house Inn, taking its name from the, reputedly, 800 year old oak tree on the adjacent village green - one of the few remaining traditional pubs, with a flagstone floor, old beams and a large open fireplace. Some seats are pews from the adjacent St. Peters church. The wood fire provides a warm welcome on those cold winter evenings or in the summer you can enjoy a refreshing glass of Pimms on the patio tables outside. The quality and freshness of their beer is as important to them as the quality and freshness of their food.

Home-cooked, quality local produce and tempting home-made desserts.

Try Sunday's traditional roast dinner - local Dartmoor beef or loin of local pork with homemade Yorkshire pudding and fresh seasonal vegetables.

Group bookings are welcome, whether for a celebratory meal, an organised walking group, a local club or society. Give them a call and discuss your requirements.

Friday Night is Fish & Chip Night in the bar ~ Battered Fish & Chips. Fillet of Cod deep fried in a home made beer batter served with chips, peas and homemade tartar sauce. For only £6.95 (bar price only)
