Royal Oak

The good pub guide review

Partly 15th-c pub taking its name from the 800-year-old oak on green opposite; heavy beamed L-shaped bar with pews, red plush banquettes, old agricultural prints and church pictures, smaller locals' bar with flagstones and big open-hearth fireplace, separate dining room, good reasonably priced food served by friendly staff, four well kept ales including Dartmoor, farm ciders, a dozen wines by the glass and several malt whiskies; background music, board games; children and dogs (in bar) welcome, picnic-sets out in front and on the green, pretty Dartmoor-edge village, open all day.
