The Royal Oak reopened, after a 4 month closure for refurbishment, in May 2017, under new management. The pub has been tastefully modernised whilst still holding onto its traditional village pub charm and offers a warm welcome to all and sundry and something to please all, whether it be a pint of well kept Real Ale, a taste of something new with our Gin of the Week, a light lunch or a 3 Course Celebratory Dinner.
