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 . . .

We’ve worked incredibly hard to make the Royal Oak inn as safe and enjoyable as possible for you and our team. Our first couple of months have been a great success and we were so happy to see smiling faces back through the door, we really have missed you all.

You can now book a table inside for lunch or dinner from this weekend to enjoy great food like our fantastic roasted beetroot and goats cheese salad or our legendary mixed grill from our new menu. Why not try a fantastic pint of Meavy Oak ale or a couple of refreshing pints of Oak Pale Craft Ale as well.

You don’t have to book in advance if you wish to visit for food as we will take walk-ins when there’s availability. Bookings can be made for groups of 4-8 people and are limited to one household per table. Please contact us directly on 01822 852944

We’ve got plenty of outdoor seating, so when the weather is good you can spend some time enjoying the last of the great British summer sun with an ice cold beverage – one that you haven’t had to serve yourself.​​​​​​​

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.

12noon – 2.30pm and 6pm – 8pm Tuesday to Saturday
