The Royal Oak is a cosy, family run country pub in the hamlet of Nadderwater, on the edge of Exeter. We are family and dog friendly and have a choice of a lively bar or a quieter lounge with a wood burner. We offer traditional pub fayre including local ales and ciders as well as freshly cooked, locally sourced food (including Sunday roasts) plus we also offer B&B accommodation.  We even have our own Indian Runner ducks!

Choose from a range of local ales and ciders, wines, spirits, lagers and soft drinks and try our range of traditional home cooked meals and daily specials. You can also stay over in one of our three spacious double or family rooms from only £25 per person per night including a lovely home cooked breakfast in the morning.
