About Royal Oak

Everything you’d expect from a great local pub

Here at the Royal Oak, York, we have a beautiful 15th Century room which can be used for private parties for up to thirty-two people within elegant surroundings with wooden beams and low ceilings which provide the perfect old world atmosphere.

Candlelit dinners are also a treat at the Royal Oak York with table service for that something just a bit different for a special occasion or a weekend away.

We also provide a selection of buffet menus which are perfect for all occasions from birthday parties, work parties or just a good old get together. The room at the Royal Oak provides privacy yet you still feel connected to the energy of the pub and the history that the room comes with.

We have a resident ghost who sits in the corner next to fireplace and cries, some customers do get the hair standing up when they pass the room. There is also a cat which is supposed to roam the room and the stairs looking for his master. Some people again feel a presence brush past them on the ankles and lower leg.
