We discovered this pub recently and have visited 3 times in as many months - always excellent food, service and atmosphere. 

Food quality and taste 10/10, service always friendly and helpful, the building is beautiful and filled with interesting history. 

Good atmosphere, plenty of space between tables. Also has a more relaxed dining area at the rear of the building which would be perfect for young families. Set in a lovely village


Lovely pub/hotel. We went for a family meal. We had pre-booked a table for 8 persons. The room where our table was located was lovely and very airy. The menu has a good choice. 

Staff were very helpful, particularly John.


All the staff were lovely especially Ollie. Food was good too. The pizza that I had was delicious. Pub was recommended by a friend of the family. 

Would definitely go again and recommend to all my friends


We hadn’t been to this pub for quite some time following a poor meal, at least a couple of years. Under new owners, since our last visit, we were delighted with the food and the service. 

All tables are a good size and there is plenty of space so you are not crowded. In August they have offers of 40% off the total food bill at lunch time Monday to Saturday and 25% off the total food and drinks bill from Monday to Thursday, has to be a good offer. 

My steak and ale pie was the best I have eaten for quite some time.


We were going to a wedding at Willington Hall and decided to book a room here for the night. We arrived at lunchtime and had a very nice lunch sat by a roaring log fire. Both the Manager, Andrew, and the gentleman manning the bar were really friendly. 

Our room (the Cotebrook Room) was spacious and had everything in it that you could possibly want. The bathroom, ditto. Breakfast was delicious, generous and extremely good value. We loved everything about the Royal Oak- the atmosphere is so friendly and welcoming. 

We will definitely be returning.


We booked the Royal Oak as a last minute night away to watch a concert at Delamere Forest and what a fantastic little stay!

Firstly we were greeted by the most friendly and helpful staff that organised our transport to and from the concert, the room was particularly lovely, very comfortable bed and very clean, bright and attractive. We had a lovely late lunch in the restaurant, vegan friendly and a drink sat outside in the lovely outdoor seating area. Breakfast also was perfect, again I was able to have a vegan option, flowing coffee and a really friendly, attentive manager looking after us.

We would highly recommend this beautiful place to anyone, thanks for making our stay so enjoyable!


Gorgeous small hotel. Spotlessly clean and large room (we were in Tarporley). A perfect stop over on drive from Scotland to Wales. We enjoyed a drink in the beer garden & the monkfish/prawn Thai curry was sublime. One small gripe was the noisy TV during breakfast but the staff agreed to turn down at our request.Highly recommend and just sorry we only stayed for one night


I can't recommend this Gastro Pub / Hotel enough. If you want to visit the area or just relax, make sure you try this place. Hotel Rooms are immaculate and comfortable.

You really come away feeling looked after and recharged. The quality of food and choice is second to none. 5 STARS!

PS a special thanks to Andrew an amazing host and also Helen who treated me like a King at Breakfast Thank you


Having been devastated by Covid restrictions pushing back our original wedding date and then the first venue we had chosen sadly shutting down, a friend recommended that we look at The Royal Oak for our venue. She had attended another wedding there and told me how wonderful it was.

The team at Royal Oak were absolutely incredible from the very first meeting! They helped us plan everything exactly how we wanted it and ensured the day ran to perfection. The way they set up the room for our wedding breakfast was absolutely stunning! The food was divine and the service they provided was spot on.

We had a disco in the evening. It was a real party atmosphere with everyone dancing all night! So much fun!

Our family & friends booked out all the rooms in the hotel, which was super convenient being right upstairs. The bedrooms were beautiful(& huge - allowing plenty of room for us ladies getting ready!!) And the beds were like sleeping on fluffy clouds!!

We are so grateful to everybody at The Royal Oak for making our wedding so memorable. It truly was an incredible day.

Hi Eric and Andy,

Firstly, thank you so much for the flowers, pictures and Prosecco yesterday. It truly did make our anniversary truly special!

‘When we decided to get married, we wanted to do something a little different, something more personal, something more us! The Royal Oak offered the perfect mix of a relaxed atmosphere with great food in a setting which really suited our style.

The team at The Oak could not have been more helpful and really delivered on the day. They were attentive to our guests needs and really did pull out all the stops to make sure that the day ran like clockwork. Many of our friends and family commented on how impressed they were with the food and more than a few enjoyed the fun ambiance.

Having recently returned for our 7th anniversary, the staff really made this a truly special experience, and all of the great memories of our special day came flooding back!’

I am more than happy for this to be edited or can re-write if you desire.

Thank you so much once again for making yesterday so special.

Kindest regards

Alex Shepherd

Hi Andrew

How are you? Here is my review from our wedding party.

"We held our wedding party at the Royal Oak just before COVID and it was just incredible. We had a mixed party with guests from literally all over the world and different ages and the venue team could not have done enough to help everyone and ensure their stay was a good one. They were really flexible and wanted to take as much pressure off us as possible.

The venue itself is beautiful and in a stunning country village. It has a great vibe and lots of space. The food was outstanding, really catered for all tastes and provided excellent value for money. The much needed (!!) cooked breakfast the next morning was also perfect. We had super live music and there is lots of room for dancing!!

All of the hotel was taken up by our guests and everyone said how comfortable the rooms were and some have even been back since for personal visits.

We would definitely recommend this venue and thanks to all of the management team and staff for making this a party people still talk about.

Best day ever!

Our wedding day was absolutely perfect, thanks to The Royal Oak! The super friendly staff, the perfect location, superb food, and the attention to every detail meant that my husband and I got to enjoy every single moment without having to worry! The bridal suite was amazing too, a real luxury and meant we had a perfect end to the perfect day! Thank you so much to everyone at The Royal Oak for making it the best day ever!

We recently held our wedding at The Royal Oak and it was such an amazing day!

We spent some time looking at different venues, trying to find the one that just felt ‘right’. From our initial meeting with the team at The Royal Oak things could not have gone smoother. They really listened to what we wanted from our special day and gave us lots of advice and helpful ideas. They also took some of the stress away from us as they had contacts for local businesses that we could use. They helped us to find the florist, cake maker and even the DJ! The venue was decorated beautifully, the food was amazing and the evening celebration was fabulous. To top it off we had a lovely honeymoon suite to spend our wedding night in and were able to finish off the celebrations the following morning at breakfast with the friends and family who had also stayed in the hotel.

We really couldn’t have asked for more. Thank you so much to everyone at The Royal Oak for helping us to have such a wonderful wedding day.
