When we first took over the pub two years ago, one of our dreams was to become the kind of place that Sawday’s would write about in their ’Special Places to Stay’. Last May, we got a visit from an unassuming, very polite couple who asked a huge amount of questions and asked to see all the rooms. As they left, they told us they were Sawday’s inspectors… This week, were over the moon to see them feature The Royal Oak and to read their wonderful write up!
