About Us

We are a family run, freehold public house dedicated to the finest drink, food and service.

Our History

The Royal Oak has had a rich and varied history since it’s initial construction in 1628. From our very first viewing we could immediately see the potential and decided that this beautiful, historic pub deserved more.

My family and I purchased the freehold in 2015 with a vision to breathe new life into an otherwise neglected public house. We aim to create space for exquisite dining, an ale to suit every palate and a warm, welcoming atmosphere for both locals and visitors alike.

Our son is an extremely accomplished chef who has trained at some of the most established hotels up and down the country. He is now bringing his 3 rosette knowledge to the table and along with his brigade, is puttting together a menu fit for both fine dining connoisseurs and classic pub food lovers.

But don’t take our word for it; please come and try for yourself.
