Dating in parts from 1613, the Royal Oak overlooks open countryside. What was the bar at the front is now a 36 cover restaurant serving what the pub calls "country dining". The food is home made and of good quality and may feature local game. This room is split-level and has low ceilings. To the rear of the pub is what is now the main bar. This leads to the garden where there is a large heated smokers' patio. Food is available from 12-3 each lunchtime (not Monday and 12-5 Sunday) and 6-9:30 Wednesday to Saturday. The pub was bought by Young's in June 2006; there are one or two beers in addition to Young's Bitter which will usually be from Young's but may also be from another brewery on the Young's guest beer list.
