About The Cowpers Oak

We’re a village pub. Not a bar, not a restaurant, not even a gastropub, whatever that is. Just a great village pub – a cosy place where you’ll find roaring log fires, creeping purple wisteria around the lattice windows, muddy boots at the door, and local pub food cooked from scratch by the very brilliant Daniel.

We use the freshest fruit, vegetables (apart from our British frozen peas) and herbs we can get our hands on. Our head chef, Daniel Gibbons, swears by fresh, local produce and makes a mean Scotch egg with eggs produced from our own hens.

Cuisine: British, Locally Sourced, Sunday Lunch

A real find! Our first visit and won’t be out last despite a forty five minute drive. Perfect in every way and set in a beautiful village too.

Loved the food and the staff. They were kind, professional and welcoming. Been there a few times now and everytime the atmosphere and acoustics let it down, it is so incredibly loud that it ruins the meal if you want to talk to the person next to, and elderly relatives (one with a hearing aid) really struggled.

Thoroughly enjoyed family Easter Sunday lunch. Good food, good service and a nice and friendly atmosphere. Equally enjoyable any weekend evening and always good value for money.

We had not been to Cowpers Oak for a while and were all pleasantly surprised. The roast beef dinner was excellent and all the other meals were greatly enjoyed especially the goats cheese, spinach and sweet potato pie. We will definitely be back again soon.

Really enjoyed my Sunday lunch at the Cowpers Oak and thought the roast beef was delicious. Staff were very friendly and attentive and there was a good selection of drinks on offer. I have been coming to the pub since I was 17 (technically I am barred) and its great to see the pub doing well but still keeping its original charm.

Although I appreciate it was Valentines day when we dined...We were out for a family birthday meal (hence 6pm) & there was nothing on the website to state there was going to be a set menu that evening. Fortunately the girls had a small portion of lasagne & a dessert. Though feel we over paid for them. Didn't complain as don't like to make a fuss.

We have already recommended to others, the home cooked pies were absolutely superb and we have confidence that other main courses would have been equally as good. The puds were outstanding and we will certainly be back.

Took advantage of the Wednesday offer. 2 courses for £15. Service friendly and food good, Had venison burger which I had plain but toppings were offered. Chunky chips especially nice. Had apple crumble for dessert which was very scrummy and just what was needed for a chilly night. Will be back again.

The food was nice, although it felt like being charged Gastropub prices for a place that was really just a village pub. We had a lovely evening and enjoyed the food, however we begrudged paying £1.50 per burger topping and £20 for mash and steak.

Service and food could not be better, was amazing. The only let down appears to have been resdiary that said it was booked out until 8:30 when actually they were both empty and the kitchen closed at 8:30 luckily we arrived early and were served straight away, but it may need reviewing by you guys so you don’t miss out on bookings, we almost chose somewhere else due to the time slot.

A first class experience at the Cowpers Oak again. A Christmas dinner for 16, and we added another person at 4 hours notice, with dietary requirements, and nothing was too much trouble. Excellent service, and a good atmosphere. We’ll be back again.

The food was good value, but we were not very happy with the table near the door, which was very draughty.
