Laura, the chef, and their staff were a joy to work with for our wedding day. My husband and I just celebrated our first anniversary and are still in awe about how amazing our wedding day was! Our guests raved about the venue and the quality of the food. We could not have asked for a better venue! We would highly recommend this place, they do not disappoint!

I searched high and low for a wedding venue in central Maine that was stylish and classic and wouldn't break the bank. I was so happy when I finally found The Royal Oak Room. Laura is the owner/coordinator and she is so easy to work with and just generally fabulous. She was accommodating and was immeasurably helpful on the wedding weekend in coordinating everything and helping to make sure everyone was where they were supposed to be. She even opened up early the day before to let us practice our first dance.
The space itself is just lovely and classically elegant with super high tray ceilings, wood paneled walls and understated decor and fixtures. I really didn't have to do much at all to decorate and the place still looked fabulous. We got married on the back patio and had the reception inside. It was the perfect size for the traditional cocktail hour followed by a seated reception with dancing for about 75 people with plenty of room for a large dance floor.
The food was delicious and the staff was phenomenal. Everyone was so sweet and attentive and made sure our day was perfect. My fiance and I hid out back while the guests arrived and Laura brought us some champagne and snacks while we waited - I was really grateful and touched by her thoughtfulness and attention to detail.
This place is a hidden gem!

Laura was an absolute dream to work with. Her team went above and beyond to make our wedding day an incredibly special and personal experience. Her flexibility and availability made planning our day a total breeze. We cannot say enough about the beauty of The Royal Oak Room. We wish we could have a wedding every year with Laura <3
