Our Recent Stay - 20 May 2016 - Jackie Clayton

Afternoon Royal Oak, I wanted to drop a quick line to say how brilliant it was to stay at your lovely place over the last 3 days.  I have been needing a break for the last couple of months after starting a new stressful position so to be so relaxed at yours was just what I needed.  Thank you for making Ken and I so welcome.  I will visit again but not the next time he's up unfortunately…..some of us have got a proper job!!! Again Many Thanks.

Hi Steve
Many thanks for looking after us. Everyone really enjoyed the food and appreciated the rapid and efficient service. The beer wasn’t bad either!
All being well we’ll be back in the autumn.

Warm welcome in the Nidderdale Valley - Christine  Crockford 29th November 2015

Really warm and friendly welcome from all staff here, we had a very comfortable and clean room. Free WiFi with good connection, fabulous views from the lovely large window, ample on site parking. Lovely quiet village location with fairly quick and easy access to Harrogate. Wonderful generous freshly cooked breakfast with fresh local ingredients in a really nice and cosy dining room - although this was the only meal we ate here, the menu looked fantastic and we'll definitely be sampling it on our next visit. Many thanks to Steve and Anna for a wonderful stay.

Walking in the rain - Philip Magson 28th October 2015

Everything was great, the location, the breakfasts, the sword fish steak! The room with a view, the friendly proprietors and helpful staff.

Great place to stay and bike friendly - Simon Pickett 24 October 2015

Incredibly helpful, kind and friendly. Wonderful location a few miles outside Pateley Bridge.

Hi Steve,
Our grateful thanks go to The Royal Oak for catering and looking after four (not six) weary walkers this afternoon. We very much enjoyed the comfort of your room with the coal fire and look forward to calling in again, hopefully next year.

Cheers, Jim

Great place to stop ideal for visits around the Yorkshire Dales and Harrogate. Lovely place to stop - still full from the wonderful breakfast had this morning - can't wait to come back - thank you for making us welcome.

Hi Steve

Thank you so much for your hospitality; we had a wonderful evening, we really enjoyed all that lovely food...... Everything lived up to and went beyond expectations. The chef must have worked so hard to prepare all those meals for us; they were all absolutely delicious.  I know I will have to come back one day for another portion of that Yorkshire Beef!

Thank you Jean
