We called in for a drink and found the owners/staff to be very rude and ignorant towards us We were very polite and only wanted a quite drink only to be treated as if we weren’t welcome We will not be making a second visit!!

It’s a real country pub, with real ales, real fires and real conversation. Officially, the Royal Oak but known as Th’ Heights for good reason; it sits high above the village of Delph, 1200 feet above sea level. So while you slake your thirst you...More

It has some funny opening times to be honest. I would guess it would be but I'd give them a ring to be sure as it's a bit out of the way
