About Us

The Old Royal Oak is situated right in the heart of the beautiful market town Knaresborough. You can expect a warm welcome (except possibly from our legendary grumpy landlord) whether you are enjoying our fabulous carvery, a Championship club pint of Timothy Taylors or attending some of our wonderful entertainment. You may even be lucky enough to be ignored by Goldie, the pub dog.
