Country Pub / Camp Site / Bunk Barn


We warmly welcome you to The Royal Oak, a charming country pub and the perfect base for exploring the delights of the southern Peak District.

Covid-19 Update

Welcome Back!


Following the Prime Minister's most recent announcement of the roadmap, we re-opened for food & drink outside only on Monday 12th April 2021. We plan to re-open for inside for food & drink from Monday 17th May 2021. Both will be confirmed the week prior and guidelines will still be in place until 21st June 2021 regarding maximum 2 households or 6 people per table. As before, we will not be allowing groups of 6+ people  or 2+ households to be split over more than 1 table. 

​Online Table Reservations

We are currently accepting online table bookings for outside only 12th April onwards. Should you wish to book a table inside from 17th May onwards please get in contact with us via the contact form or email us at and we can book you in.


Following information that providing shared facilities have increased cleans, our campsite is open from 12th April onwards. Unfortunately our bunkbarn remains closed until 17th May. You can see our current Covid operational plan for our accommodation here.

We want all customers to feel they can book with confidence so in the event that Covid-19 restrictions implemented by the Government mean your stay cannot go ahead, all customers will have the option to transfer/amend their booking if they have a new date in mind, have credit retained by us until they decide on a new date or have their booking refunded should they wish.

Until then stay safe and we can't wait to welcome you all back to 'The Oak' .

Award Winning Traditional Peak District Pub with Camping and Bunk Barn Accommodation.

We warmly welcome you to The Royal Oak, a charming country pub and the perfect base for exploring the delights of the southern Peak District.

The Royal Oak's open fires and hidden corners are a welcoming sight for all tired walkers craving a well earned pint, families on a day out in search of a friendly haven or 'Foodies' after some great homemade dishes. Proper food, generous portions and sensible prices are what make The Royal Oak so special.

We take great pride in offering a very traditional style of hospitality complete with cosy pub atmosphere, good company, cask-conditioned ales, a fine selection of wines and a menu of hearty English pub food. Open for fresh coffee and hearty breakfasts from 8.30am (weekends)  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.

For those who'd like to linger longer, the choice of barn or camping accommodation is available
