"Top organic nosh with a relaxed vibe and beautifully appointed bedroom."
A great one night getaway in rural Wiltshire. We were attracted by the organic produce on the pub menu and the stylish looking rooms - neither disappointed. What we hadn’t banked on were the friendly staff, the helpful landlord and the incredible charm of the whole place, making it an all round fab experience. It was particularly great to go and visit the organically reared pigs out in the fields. Read less
Likes:
We loved visiting the field, Eastbrook Valley, our room’s namesake - once on foot and once by bike (available from the pub).
Delicous porky Sunday lunch and full breakfast. Exploring the Ridgeway.

"Quirky, comfortable, kind place to rest our weary feet"
We were walking the Ridgeway, and so had back packs and sore feet. We were shown wonderful hospitality by the staff here, and wonderful, reasonably priced food in unfussy and quirky accommodation. This is a place with a personality. There is a place they call "The Wallow" which is a room set in a courtyard, to soak up the sun, play a record, make a cup of tea or coffee. So thoughtful and generous. It sums up the place. Read less
Likes:
The rooms were comfortable, clean, fun. Showers were hot. Food was wholesome and unfussy, locally produced on the organic farm, and made with love and care. Wow

"Back again!"
Our 3rd visit to the Royal Oak over the past twelve months and the place never disappoints. The rooms are stunning and the food and drink in the pub itself is second to none. The staff are so friendly and nothing is too much for them. If you have a chance, ask Tim, the landlord and Helen Browning's partner, for a tour of the farm - it's a great opportunity to learn more about the way they farm. Read less
Likes:
Getting up close with the pigs and week old piglets
Dislikes:
Not a critiscm, however we did struggle to regulate the temperature in the shower in our room, Downs East - unlike most hotels, it was too hot!

"Heaven....."
It’s difficult to believe but when we first stumbled upon this place as a substitute holiday destination, having missed flights to Morocco, we ALL agreed that the Royal Oak was better than Marrakech!
The food is outstanding, the service is second to none, the rooms are beautiful, simple, elegant yet homely. Our 3 dogs adored the beautiful walks and the freezing cold stream as much as our 7 year old.
We love it so much here that we’ve already been back and we’ve booked for the summer too! Read less

"Fantastic gem in the heart of english countryside."
We required a motorway stop in the area for the evening and wasn't keen on spending it in another generic budget hotel. This place was easy to find with the satnav, fantastic rooms, friendly staff and an extremely good evening meal. I would like to recommend this place to everyone I talk to but am concerned that when i book a return visit, it will be fully booked! Read less
Likes:
Good quality furnishings in a very clean, tidy and warm room with plenty of space. Short distance to main pub building that serves fantastic local beers, ciders and locally sourced food ingredients.
Dislikes:
The thought of it being fully booked the next time we wish to stay here!
