About The Cowpers Oak

The Grade II listed Cowpers Oak is a gorgeous country pub. Home to great food with an Italian flair, real ales, an extensive wine list and an equally great atmosphere. We’re dog friendly, and they are very welcome in the bar area.

Whether you just fancy a drink after the rigours of the day, are out for that special celebration meal, or just meeting friends for drinks the Cowpers is the place for you; a warm welcome will be waiting.

In these unusual times please check with us before travelling as we are offering table service only for drinks and meals as our key priority is to keep our customers safe.

We didn’t rest during lock down and continued to update the Cowpers and our offerings. With a fresh interior, a new garden bar and BBQ area and the introduction of the first authentic Smokehouse Menu in the area, we can offer you an unrivalled experience. We use using our own Smokehouse rubs and sauces, making the menu extremely popular and we are continuing to grow our Smokehouse offerings.

Debbie, Joe and the team are ready to serve and look forward to welcoming you to Cowpers Oak.

Great food, great service. Hard to get an atmosphere under present restrictions and as lunch time mid week and weather still not ideal for outside eating, but hopefully soon it will warm up !

A very windy day, but the tents in the garden offered good protection. Once we had drinks and food, we could have put up with anything!

After a two hour walk it was lovely to go back to one of our favourite places for lunch. We had to wait for quite a while for our food but it didn't really matter as it was pleasant to sit under cover in the garden on a sunny, busy afternoon. As usual, the food was delicious when it came and the staff were great. We'll certainly be back.

A party of very drunk and disorderly men -who were standing on tables and jumping over the wall ,were also throwing stones at the window of the marquee. We complained but nothing was said to them and the waitress said -oh I suppose they were a bit boisterous . It ruined our first night out in over a year and also our friends birthday celebration. When asked what wine was available -they didn’t offer a wine list but said we have red or white !! We weren’t shown the specials list until we had already ordered . We certainly wouldn’t recommend it ! The marquee was mouldy and cold and felt like a cattle barn -not at all what was promised on the FB page

Lovely friendly pub with lots of options for Covid friendly seating; undercover, in the sunshine or under an umbrella. Food was generous, well cooked and tasty and their coleslaw is amazing. Our first apres lockdown lunch and they did it justice. We'll be back. Thanks.

It was great to be able to return to the Cowpers Oak following an end to Lockdown. Once again the time of closure had been put to good use in Garden enhancements and facilities. The food was excellent as usual, and the hard working team got their steps in with never ending table service. Always with a smile. A true English country pub experience, and one we will look to repeat on a regular basis.
