Royal Oak Information


The Royal Oak is a thriving village pub offering great food and drinks in a warm friendly atmosphere. It has everything you could hope for – including a leafy beer garden, pool table and roaring fires in winter – plus a few surprises, such as eclectic local artwork and monthly acoustic jam sessions. The Royal Oak, in the pretty South Hams village of Malborough, is just a short drive from Kingsbridge, Hope Cove and Salcombe. The Royal Oak has recently been refurbished and now, possibly for the first time in its 400 year history, we are pleased to be able to offer comfortable accommodation for visitors to this glorious corner of Devon. Wake up refreshed for a day of walking on the beach, relaxing, sightseeing, a trip to Salcombe or whatever takes your fancy. Bed and Breakfast with a choice of three rooms: History: King Charles II escaped his enemies after the battle of Worcester in September 1651. A reward of £1,000 was offered for capture of the King. He had a distinctive appearance; 6’2” and swarthy; 5’6”; was the average height of males then. The King hid in a ‘Priest Hole’ within Boscobel House until Colonel Careless, later (somewhat understandably) renamed Carlos, suggested this was unsafe. King Charles was disguised as a woodman. The King and Careless took some food and drink and spent all day hiding in an oak tree, which became known as the ‘Royal Oak’
