Food & Drink

Overview & description

The Royal Oak is once again a traditional local community pub!  We will continue serving local beers and ales to the regulars alongside some of Italy’s craft beers. Our aim is to blend Yorkshire fare with products from farms we know in Tuscany and to achieve a feeling of “Where Yorkshire meets Tuscany”.  During our time in Tuscany we have taken many a happy visitor to places serving genuine honest food in the Mugello (often called ‘The Green Heart of Tuscany’) just north of Florence with vineyards and olive groves producing world famous olive oils and Chianti wines. 

Here at the Royal Oak our food is lovingly prepared by hands-on cooks using the best local ingredients.  Vegetarian and gluten free options are always available.  Our favourites are the steak & ale cobbler, Whitby fish & chips and Nonna’s  homemade lasagna.

We welcome you to our ever evolving wine list, with a strong nod to Italy, as we have spent 14 years living and working there. We know what a confusing place Italy can be, and Italian wine regions are no exception! We have tried to source a selection from a variety of regions, offering a sense of place where these wines come from, great quality and value, but above all, drinking pleasure!  We also have a range of wines from around the globe from family wineries that we have personally visited, and tasted (rigorously in fact) so we know the people behind them having met the winemakers, and can certify the quality and values they aspire to, with a story to tell and offer a lot of bang for your buck. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do.

As a family we are passionate about coffee, and can offer an Italian espresso and cappuccino as they are served in Italy if requested.
