The Royal Oak is a little hidden gem of a pub just off the beaten track. Classics and twists abound on the menu, bashed up with hints of far-flung places and the taste of Empire. From field to farm, hedgerow to forest, the sound of the sea and the thrill of the hunt, food is a passion at The Royal Oak. Edd, the talented Head Chef is highly skilled at 'British Colonial' style food. The offering moves with the seasons and the daily Specials on the chalkboard speak of a passion for freshness and invention. Embrace your rampant carnivore or channel your inner veggie. The team at The Royal Oak are firm believers in using local produce wherever possible, ethically sourced, always fresh and handled with care. Food with a smile on its face! The kitchen delivers the kind of tucker you'd wish your mother had made. Old English favourites rescued from their graves and brought to life with a twist or two. 'Modern', 'Contemporary', 'Eclectic' ... these are just terms. What The Royal Oak bring to the table is fabulous food, constructed with care and packed with flavour. Beer is the backbone of any pub. And there is a choice of real ales at all times featuring local brewers like Rebellion and backed by bottled and draught lagers. Tutts Clump Cider on draft is another favourite. Just like the food, The Royal Oak likes to keep their wines close. That means a European selection that cuts down the wine miles and covers all the bases. The wine list is a little bit like the pub – off the beaten track - but if you have a sense of adventure and you love great wine, ask for a taster and enjoy the journey.
