Proper food, generous portions and sensible prices are what make The Royal Oak so special.

Open for fresh coffee and hearty breakfasts from 10am and serving food all day, every day from 12 noon until 9pm means you can sit back and enjoy the unique atmosphere at the 'Oak' anytime.

Peak District Food
Our aim is to produce good honest pub food which is freshly prepared on the premises. Our policy at The Royal Oak is to source the best seasonal produce and support our local suppliers. In order to create our extensive menu, we have chosen our suppliers from their established and trusted reputations, knowledge and quality of product and with consideration to the environment - they are all located within a 20 mile radius of the Royal Oak. Whether it's a light bite, a Sunday Roast or one of our legendary bar meals from our extensive menu, we will ensure you leave us more than satisfied.
We aim to cater for all tastes and if you have any dietary requirements, want something not on the menu or if you just fancy a dish with a different vegetables, salad or sauce if we can do it we will. Children of all ages are welcome and we offer a Children's Menu with smaller portions to tempt little appetites. We can cater for large groups with our set menu especially designed to offer the most popular dishes off our main menu.
If you would like to book a meal for a group or 10 or more please call or email us to discuss further. New this season The Royal Oak Breakfast will be served every day. A delicious breakfast menu has been created by our chef to tempt you in even earlier.
