We haven't been to the Oak for a while as the food quality had been hit or miss for a while. With the Mare closed / closing, we thought we'd give it a go - overall, very pleased with the choice. Restaurant was quiet but still took quite a while for our food - however, knowing it was all cooked fresh made the wait worthwhile.
All our meals were well cooked & presented but lacked vegetables (apart from a salad garnish) but the homemade chips were plentiful and delicious!
Only downside to the meal was the bill - not the amount (very reasonable) but the fact that the card machine automatically adds a £1 charge irrespective if debit / credit card or value of bill. That's a new one to me and it's the principle rather than the charge itself.
Overall, we enjoyed ourselves and will be back.
