We found this pub on TripAdvisor after visiting Chartwell. The reviews sounded promising for lunch- we wanted something light and we particularly liked the sound of the hot pork baguette, fishfinger sandwich and the baked Camembert board. As well as the chef's specials. However, on...More

We were recommended to visit this pub for an evening meal. It was worth the lovely walk there and back. We had a very nice supper and the landlady was very friendly and helpful. Wish it were nearer for return visit.

We came here after visiting Chartwell, which is nearby. The place is very welcoming and the food is good quality pub fare, very well made. Try the pie if you've got a hearty appetite!

The Royal Oak is what I'd call a "proper" country pub. It has the character that many pubs have now sadly lost, as they are becoming more of a restaurant. Thankfully the Royal Oak has retained its charm. Food was delicious and pricing very reasonable...More
