The Royal Oak
Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
The menu is seasonal, fresh and made up of good village-pub grub. Alongside the regional dishes you'd expect to find in a country pub, you'll also find alternatives like homemade curry and a range of vegetarian options. Desserts are also homemade and hearty, featuring a mixture of classic comfort puddings and more contemporary sweets.
Okeford Fitzpaine really is a classic Dorset village, with its pretty 14th-Century church, not to mention the many listed 18th-Century buildings. The surrounding countryside of Blackmore Vale and the Dorset Downs is simply outstanding, its gentle hills and patchwork fields a rambler's paradise. And if you're into the outdoors, the Royal Oak's large family beer garden is the ideal place to sit down with a good pint of real ale on a late summer afternoon.
