Had a great meal today, arrived with our baby and dog after a 2 hour walk, feeling exhausted. We were warmly welcomed and served 2 delicious meals (pie and shoulder of lamb). Would definitely recommend.

So, let’s be clear: Chelsea, Harry and Harry’s parents are the most genuine and welcoming tenants of any pub I’ve been to or stayed at in the uk. The food in the Royal Oak is superb and the pies really are to die for. I’ve...More
