The Royal Oak Pub & Kitchen

The Royal Oak in the centre of Radcliffe on Trent has been recorded as a public house since 1855. In recent years it has changed hands a number of times and, indeed, stopped serving food altogether in mid 2016. But under new ownership, the Royal Oak is back on track, fully refurbished and, if our Sunday lunch was anything to go by, serving excellent food once again.

The pub is on Main Street, with some on-street parking and a car park next door (car parking fee is refundable against your meal). The pub has a comfortable dining room to the right as you enter and a casual bar area to the left. A small terrace outside is perfect for catching the sun and watching the hustle and bustle of the village centre.

There is plenty on the menu to choose from, with traditional Sunday roasts and familiar pub dishes such as rump steak or catch-of-the-day fish and chips. There are also dishes with a gentle twist such as panko-crumbed chicken burger and a warm goats’ cheese and beetroot salad.

When we visited on a chilly Sunday in January we started with some superb battered, deep-fried whitebait and sweet chilli sauce. The roast beef (pink and tender) came with a wonderful, creamy cauliflower cheese, baby carrots and roast potatoes with a rich red wine gravy. The pork belly with mustard mash, and the lemon, pea and mint risotto were also excellent. To finish, sticky toffee pudding in a rich toffee sauce was to die for.

It is great to the see the Royal Oak open again. It was nicely busy on a Sunday lunchtime, with excellent food, a friendly, helpful team who made us welcome, easy access and parking. With the option to catch a few rays when the sun comes out, this pub is well worth a visit.

    Hi, nice village location, warm and friendly hospitality and incredibly well managed and served food. Chef is visible from the restaurant and “Nat” behind the bar is accommodating and most helpful. Produce is locally sourced and absolutely beautiful. Been here before and the steaks are always cooked to perfection. If you’re passing by, stop in! You won’t be sorry…!
