The Royal Oak is a traditional country pub offering local cask ales and ciders as well as lagers and other drinks, including freshly ground coffee and assorted teas.
The bar is friendly, with a mix of locals and visitors.
We welcome families with children and are dog-friendly. Sorry, no dogs in the restaurant, but they are allowed in the bar area where you can also dine.
Our kitchen serves lunchtime and evening meals, and can cater for vegetarian and other dietary options; see our website for the latest opening and serving hours.
Due to our popularity and exclusive number of covers, we always advise booking in advance to avoid disappointment.
If you have a group of up to 8 adults, why not try our private dining room?
Our attractive timbered building is listed, and dates back to at least 1674. The date on the fireplace in our snug may not be when The Royal Oak was built, but a restoration record on a new fireplace.
The glass covered well features in the bar area and has fresh spring water flowing through it.
A diver went down to explore it in 1999, but the dive wasn't a success - he hit a grille and modern debris just 15 feet down, so the well is keeping its secrets for now.
The old oak tree on Bibstone Hill probably encouraged the name of our pub. The remaining tree looks as though it could be at least three hundred years old.
Our cellar was used for cart building. The story goes that after one cart had been built, it had to be dismantled to remove it!
