Welcome to The Royal Oak, Meavy

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

Update from The Royal Oak

Royal Oak - open June 2021FULLY OPEN

Following the update from the UK Government earlier this week, I wanted to let you know about the changes we are making when the new Covid-19 regulations come into effect on Monday 19 July.

Throughout the course of this pandemic, the safety and wellbeing of our customers and staff has been our most important consideration, ensuring that every change to the regulations was implemented to provide maximum protection.

From sanitiser stations to protective screens, daily cleaning routines and regular testing for all our staff, these are measures that many of you will be familiar with.

Now is the Time!!!

When restrictions ease from Monday 19 July, your experience in our pub will not noticeably change. Our staff will continue to wear face coverings when delivering food and sanitiser stations will remain in place. We will continue to offer tableservice as a number of our customers have said they enjoy this continental style. You will of course now be able to go up to the bar and order and collect your own drinks.

Some things however will change. In line with the changes in restrictions, the requirement to adhere to 2 metre social distancing restrictions will end and face coverings will no longer be a legal requirement for customers.

However, I would ask that you consider continuing to maintain a suitable distance from other customers and staff, together with wearing a face covering , so that you and our staff are protected as far as is possible.

Thank you for your continued support.
