Welcome to The Royal Oak

Stephen Earp would like to welcome you to The Royal Oak,
the perfect Dartmoor hideaway for drinking and dining.

Update from The Royal Oak, Meavy

WE’RE OPEN . . .

Government Guidance Update

Firstly, thank you to each and every one of our customers who has supported us since our reopening on 4th July. Also thanks for the support we have received from the Parish Council, helping us bounce back from lockdown.

We wanted to provide an update to you all in reference to the new COVID Guidelines brought in this week.

We will be closed by 10pm in-line with the new restrictions. This means the last tables will be booked by 8.30pm. We will be operating table service and you will need to remain at the entrance until a table has been allocated to you. As we only have eight tables you understand we may not be able to accommodate you unless you have booked in advance.

Guests will now be asked to wear face masks until they are seated at the table and whilst moving around the pub. You will also be asked for your details for the track and trace system. We are only allowed to take bookings of a maximum of 6 guests – we are afraid this number does include any children in the party.

From the beginning of October we will be looking to offer a daily two or three course menu in the evenings…..as well as our bar sharing specials. So if you have a special occasion you would like to celebrate please give a call and book a table, as you are aware tables will be limited.

Please note we don’t open for food on Sunday and Monday evenings from October onwards. We are open the rest of the week for lunch and dinner 12noon to 2:30pm & 6pm to 8pm.

So our autumn opening hours are as follows:

The bar is open 11am to 9pm every day except Monday when we are closed in the evenings.

Food is available
12noon – 2.30pm Monday
12noon – 2.30pm and 6pm – 8pm Tuesday to Saturday
12noon – 6pm Sunday
Eat in or Takeaway Fish and Chips 5pm – 8pm Friday

Thank you once again for your ongoing support.

Sincerely, Stephen and the Royal Oak team
