Named for the tree planted by Queen Victoria opposite the pub, The Queen’s Oak is nestled in the village of Finchampstead. The historic pub offers visitors a warm welcome, exquisite food and a vast selection of real ale, wine and spirits to complement the delicious homemade food. Recently refurbished yet still retaining its rustic charm, owner Paul Brotherton offers a warm welcome.
With a dedicated garden menu for the summer months, and a weekly changing specials board, you’ll be spoilt for choice. The main menu runs all year round and offers tempting nibbles such as Lebanese flatbreads with hummus, and homemade pork crackling served with apple and Brakspear ale sauce. The white crab in lemon mayonnaise with guacamole and rocket salad is a bright and fresh start to the meal, and you will be spoilt for choice by the range of splendid mains on offer. From monkfish wrapped in Parma ham to soy- and garlic-marinated crispy beef, there’s something to suit all tastes. The desserts include a chocolate brownie with sour cherry compote, pistachio ice cream and chocolate
sauce for the ultimate indulgence. Sunday roasts at The Queen’s Oak are a big hit, with beef, pork, lamb and chicken on offer. This dog-friendly pub will even serve up special treats for your four-legged friend, making it the perfect stop off after a country walk through the beautiful surrounding Berkshire countryside. Get cosy by the open fire or relax in the garden during the winter months; whatever time of year you decide to visit, The Queen’s Oak is the ultimate retreat.
