About our 18th-century Exmoor Pub

Two dog friendly bars

Here at The Royal Oak Inn Withypool, we have two bars – both offering a range of local beers, wine, spirit and a wide selection of gin. Due to COVID-19, our freshly cooked food and drink will be served to your table outside where we have both covered and uncovered outdoor seating areas and outdoor bar until the government advises us otherwise.

We pride ourselves on being really dog friendly and even have a menu just for the four legged members of your family! We also stock doggy treats and have bowls of water available at the pub for the end those long Exmoor walks.
