Description: Jacqui took over as tenant on 30th July 2018. She and her team will give you an extremely warm welcome to The Royal Oak in Crockham Hill. We serve superb home-cooked food and there is a range well-kept Westerham Brewery beers and fine wines for you to enjoy. The pub is set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty - whether you are walking, cycling, on a family outing or working away from the office there is something for you at The Royal Oak. There are a couple of walks on the Links page of our website and we are very close to both Chartwell and Hever Castle.Freshly brewed coffee and free High Speed WiFi is available at all times.

The staff were friendly and amusing
They introduced us to three Westerham ales which were all delicious in their different ways
We had lunch in the small charming garden where they served a wonderful sharer which featured melted camembert & chopped garlic and some thick-cut tender tasty ham
We would definitely go again

A wonderful country pub serving good ales and food.
Worth a visit with a lovely drive in the country to get there.

We always visit this pub when we go walking round Toy's Hill and although sometimes there are only a couple of beers on, it's always been well-kept, good beer. We've always found the staff to be genuinely friendly, particularly the landlady. We've only eaten a full meal there a couple of times but the food was excellent, and both times the chef was able to knock up a vegan variation of the vegetarian meal on offer. A pub with a great atmosphere, great staff and fantastic chef.

Having been turned away by another nearby establishment I was relieved that the Royal Oak were happy to accommodate our party of 12 walkers one Saturday lunchtime. My experience of being served in a large party is often not great but there were no problems here for us. Food was tasty and good value. Westerham Brewery's Summer Perle was excellent ( it doesn't have very far to travel after all). Finally friendly staff, should be a given but sadly often not the case.

From the large menu we both chose Haddock and mushy peas. The fish was large enough to overflow the plate!!! The meal was filling enough that we did not need anything else.
I had a recommended Grasshopper and my wife had a cider.
That night (Monday), we were the only patrons dining at the time and the service was very good and the quality of the meal was excellent and reasonably priced.
