Welcome to The Royal Oak

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

Update from The Royal Oak, Meavy

We would normally be welcoming many of you through our door to enjoy our restaurant and bar; treating yourself to delicious food overlooking the village green, and sharing a pint or two with friends and family in the the bar.

While we’re sorry that we won’t be seeing you anytime soon, we hope you are all safe and well. We have now been closed for 8 weeks . . . 😩

Online shop for Ale, Cider and Wine

Delivered to you. See Shop

We did think of trying to trade through the the current situation by offering a takeaway food service.
Those of you who know Meavy will understand the population is not that big.
In order to make it work we would need to appeal to our wider customer base, and unfortunately that would encourage non essential travel into the village.

Also everyone is doing such a fantastic job of staying at home, it would be unfair of us to offer up temptation to disrupt this. We have set up a small shop outside the pub for a few essential items, so people don’t need to travel out of the village.

We’re very much looking forward to welcoming you back to The Royal Oak when it is safe and sensible to do so . . .

The plan at The Royal Oak was a simple one, we wanted to have a fantastic traditional pub, offering great local ale and cider, good quality locally sourced food and friendly service.
