Lovely little historic pub. Nice cosy atmosphere. Good selection of guest beers. Huge Yorkshire pud (couldn't finish mine). Starter was a bit small but ok.

We enjoyed our late Sunday lunch. The only disappointment was that there were only two portions of roast meat left. They must have had a busy day.

Not the best Sunday lunch. Everything appeared pre packed or frozen. The room was small and you were squashed in with other diners. Staff were friendly and attentive though.

The reservation was made based on the menu, but on arrival there were no lamb shanks. We left without eating the staff conceded this was an issue

So disappointed. Arrived with my mum to find they had no food left, although our booking was accepted. Would not recommend The Royal Oak York to any one
