About The Royal Oak

Sprawling gardens, a petanque piste, fragrant kitchen herbs and a sunny terrace set the scene for our little whitewashed pub.

Inside is at once both spacious and cosy. You’ll find a snug with wood burning stove, a rosy red dining room and glowing dark floorboards. Rich fabrics and heritage colours create a warm background for our friendly, bubbly and professional team.

Our imaginative modern British food is consistently a big draw. We use fresh, seasonal and local produce wherever possible and strongly believe in good food ethics. That might sound a little serious, but we’re really a very relaxed and informal bunch and happy to rustle you up a snack at the bar or offer some serious gastronomy.

Flexibility is our middle name, so whether you need some healthy home cooked food for the kids or need to tick the box with our award winning gluten/dairy/allergen free dishes, Eddie, our head chef and his brigade will make it happen.

Dogs, children and muddy boots welcome!

Excellent Christmas lunch on the day of the Christmas lockdown. Really lovely atmosphere and menu in Covid safe environment. Great to be out and a perfect place for the last meal out of 2020.

Our favourite place! The perfect Pre-Christmas meal ... for 15+ years. Laura and the whole tram are truly the best, setting a standard of warm hospitality not to be found anywhere else. Thank you!

Lovely evening out just before Tier 3 in Bucks, but what a shame there weren’t more inside to make the atmosphere a bit livelier. Several groups of 6 outside clearly having a great time! So sorry we won’t be able to return for a bit.

From the moment we entered the pub we were made to feel welcome by our waiter, Benjamin. Lovely festive atmosphere with log burner/fire lit but all at a safe/social distance. Food was delicious (Bubble & Squeak) and was washed down with a festive mulled wine. Good service, lovely locally sourced produce and all at a reasonable price .. thank you

Fantastic quality. Will definitely be coming back and have already recommended to a friend. Only criticism would be there is no vegetarian option for the roast dinner. The staff were amazing and catered for my partner but unfortunately she had a roast with no gravy or stuffing ect. 😔. But nevertheless what she did have was fantastic and of high quality. 😁👍. Thanks royal oak will see you soon 😊

My third visit to your pub and each time was faultless. Food was amazing as was the service. It was first time with my family and they said it was one of their best meals ever in a pub!

We love the Royal Oak and were so pleased to see it open again after the second lockdown. The food is always delicious and well presented and the staff are very friendly and service is excellent. The venue has been made very COVID secure and it was easy to relax.
