Summary

Parkie – and son Nick’s – country inn is an “excellent gastropub” strong on convivial atmosphere and with consistently highly-rated cooking. It does attract the odd poor review however: does that Michelin star unnecessarily raise expectations?

Summary

Parkie’s country gastropub is “the kind of pub you could imagine having a beer in”. We – like one or two reporters – are “not sure about the Michelin star”: at the price, the food is “perfectly competent”.

Reviewed 11 months, 8 days ago

"Royal Oak Paley Street: an excellent chocolate mousse dessert. Mains (partridge) very nicely presented but somewhat lacking in flavour (otherwise would have been 4* for food). Nice glass of Malbec. Staff friendly and helpful. Pleasant atmosphere and decor. Price circa £50pp for 2 courses inc water and glass of wine."
