The Royal Oak is a thriving village pub offering great food and drinks in a warm friendly atmosphere. It has everything you could hope for – including a leafy beer garden, pool table and roaring fires in winter – plus a few surprises, such as eclectic local artwork and monthly acoustic jam sessions.

The Royal Oak, in the pretty South Hams village of Malborough, is just a short drive from Kingsbridge, Hope Cove and Salcombe.
