Edit: 07/05/2024 Chef left and kitchen closed at time of update.

I love the food, friendly staff, and learning about different beers. Only took me 20 years to find out. We judge our experiences against our expectations. This is a solid old fashioned hotel with a heart of gold. The kitchen team provide large delicious bistro meals. No fancy ambience. Just a great feed and drink at affordable prices. The bar staff are lovely and have been helping me learn more about a range of beers. I've uploaded some photos. I try to only review after attending on multiple occasions to judge consistency. I've only had great experiences.

Edit: I'm going weekly to try out the menu. The steak tonight was delicious. (Photo). I'm a very happy customer. Love the White Rabbit beer.

Tonight we travelled to Kilmore to celebrate my friend's 50th birthday. We were having a lovely time dancing and lauging at Macs hotel.
When she told.me I had to run from Macs closing at 11 to be in the Royal Oak which advertised open till 1 I thought it was a joke... but half the party were 2 minutes late! A woman stood guarding the door and was absolutely disgracefully rude.
So we had no choice but to go home and my friend's birthday was ruined. She called me later in tears because one of the 15 year old bar staff had deemed her too intoxicated to buy a drink! She'd only had 2 drinks before hand ! A single mother, workaholic, wildlife carer, who does so much for kilmore community and rarely has the opportunity to go out, was shattered to be so disrspected and condemned.
Then she was belittled being forced to say she was argumenrtutative when she had not even been the one asking for a drink to begin with.
This bar is a joke. Run by a control freak narcissist with no regard for any one.
I am grateful to be back in Melbourne where we have a choice and not have to deal with someone controlling our social lives.
I really hope Kilmore residents are given an alternative option soon. It embarrassing that their social lives are overseen by this absolute circus.

I've been here for dinner with friends a couple of times now, and while the dining area looks a bit tired, all the food is very tasty and comes in nice big serves. The service has also been fantastic every time and I'm sure we'll continue to come back.

I was disgusted to see that there was no facilities for disabled people, not even a ramp to get in the doors. There were steps everywhere even in the toilets. There was not even a grab rail anywhere. It is 2023 for god sake and they are still trapped in 1950. I will never return and your council will be held accountable as well for letting you get away with it for so long. It is a direct violation of Australian Human Rights, Look it up for yourself.

Booked in for Mothers Day - took 10 mins for someone to seat us, table had been given to someone else. Not enough staff to serve everyone. Waited 40 mins for meal. Only got it coz we enquired what was going on Slack as.
Not happy at all.

Great local watering hole! The chef is fantastic, you have to try his version of the chicken nuggets and jalepino pizza bread!. Great steaks too

Finally found what we've been looking for in Mitchell Shire. It's not fancy but the staff/team were very friendly & helpful and the meals a good size and very tasty. We'll definitely be back.

We've lived in the area for 20 years and have struggled to find a good old style value for money pub bistro menu. It may not be for everyone but the Royal Oak Bistro is not trying to be a fancy restaurant, and definitely not charging patrons Melbourne restaurant prices for a basic meal like many other venues around the area seem to do.

Went in on St Patricks day for dinner 17th March. Dining room was full and they fitted us in for dinner. We had entre่ mains and sweets. Huge sized meals and couldnt fault a thing. Service was fabulous even though they were clearly under the pump. As a chef, it was so nice to go out and have excellent food at a great price. Definately a pleasant change. Thankyou guys

Food was amazing! Have come for dinner a few times with large groups and all the meals have been great. Staff are very friendly and very accommodating. New management has made all the difference.

The pub is small and cramped, closes late but can't get in past 11 even if you want to talk to a mate that's inside they have to leave the venue and go home. Food isn't good the atmosphere is nice but it should be taken to a pub that is well managed not by someone that should be in a nursery home.

Firstly I looked at the place on line and when arriving the bistro looked completely different. The appearance has nothing going for it. Secondly if you order anything with garlic there is no garlic so take your own. Fish was excellent. Scotch steak medium rare dry as the Simpson desert and I did question it as it was pricey and they insisted it was medium rare. Squid you can cook better out of the packet. Garlic prawns no garlic. Chicken Parma just acceptable. Chocolate mess and ice cream not desirable. But try it yourself and let me know what you think.

Unhospitable
Out for a ladies night in the small town of kilmore. We only catch up once a year.
The night only started at 8 and ended at 11 when the bar advertised open till 1 refused entry to anyone arriving after 11. Only 10 people in the place, 5 mature women requesting entry. Incredibly rude.
Very disappointed.
Won't bother again. Our weekend will be moved elsewhere starting with planned lunch tomorrow.

Absolutely best Chinese food in Kilmore and huge dining area. I was not expecting much from a pub but we couldn't stop eating the Mongolian beef, very, very surprised! Service was very friendly also, which can be lacking in country towns. Have been a local for decades and can highly recommend!
