Update from The Royal Oak, Meavy


Government Guidance Update

Firstly, thank you to each and every one of our customers who have sent good wishes for our reopening on the 2nd of December. Also the support we have received from the Parish Council helping us get thought the latest lockdown.

We do feel that as a pub along with the rest of the hospitality industry in the country we are being penalised and unfairly treated. But even with the restrictions we are going to reopen on Wednesday. However we will be reviewing the situation and the financial feasibility of operating the business under these current restrictions.

Royal Oak Christmas treeWe wanted to provide an update to you all in reference to the new COVID Guidelines being brought in this week.

We will not be open after 10pm as our kitchen closes at 8pm week days. We will be offering food until 9pm on Friday and Saturday. The pub will be closed on Sunday and Monday evenings.

We will be operating table service and you will need to remain at the entrance to the pub until a table has been allocated to you. We only have eight tables so you can imagine we may not be able to accommodate you unless you have booked in advance.
Guests will be asked to wear face masks until they are seated at the table and whilst moving around the pub. You will also be asked to use the track and trace system.
We are only allowed to take bookings of a maximum of 6 guests from the same household – we are afraid this number does include any children in the party.

We will be opening each day at 10am for Brunch and serving Lunch from midday.
During the afternoon we will be offering coffee, cake and hot chocolate.
In the evenings between 6pm and 8pm we will be offering our new Tapas menu, which is ideal for sharing.

You will not be able to purchase a drink unless you are also purchasing a meal……

With Christmas just around the corner . . . If you would like to celebrate at the Royal Oak with a Festive Christmas Dinner, please give us a call or email us: and book a table, as you are aware tables will be limited.

Thank you once again for your ongoing support.

Sincerely Stephen
