The Royal Oak
Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
Sprawling gardens, a petanque piste, fragrant kitchen herbs and a sunny terrace set the scene for this little whitewashed pub. The interior is at once spacious and cosy - you'll find a snug with a wood-burning stove, a rosy red dining room and gleaming dark floorboards. Rich fabrics and heritage colours create a warm background, as do the friendly and professional staff. The imaginative British food on offer is consistently a big draw. The kitchen team use seasonal and local produce wherever possible and strongly believe in good food ethics. Too serious? Not at all - the staff are a very relaxed bunch and are happy to rustle you up a snack at the bar or offer some serious gastronomy. So if you're looking for grown-up time to yourselves, the chance to lose your kids in the garden or some sustenance after walking the dog, a warm welcome awaits.
