Lovely pub and friendly atmosphere and staff. Good beer selection. It reminds me of how local Pubs used to be!

Called in the other night after easily booking a table just incase and the weather looked dodgy. Excellent beer and very welcoming friendly table service. Just great to be able to have the indoor option, buy also looking forward to some outdoor nights before long.

After staying in Wirsworth for the weekend we ventured out for some drinks and went into the Royal Oak for a few drinks. Everyone inside the pub was really welcoming and the drinks were incredibly well priced. An amazing selection of whiskey too. A real...traditional pub and real cosy setting.More

Always a great selection of ales, wines, and if you are a fan of a tot of whiskey or two, then you are in for a real treat, lovely beer garden and dog friendly too. Great place and a tip top boozer. Well done.

Wonderful unspoilt pub, situated on North End in Wirksworth. A great selection of real ale, and at the end of the bar a guest craft keg. Look out for the range of Whiskeys available. Beer garden found through the archway to the side of the...pub.More

Very friendly staff and locals. Beer kept really well. Be aware of limited opening hours. Off the main track but worth seeking out.
