Blackthorn _ left this review about The Oakhill Inn
An attractive looking pub in this small village, it looks quite smart and upmarket from the outside and one is perhaps expecting some sort of trendy gastro-pub. Internally though it’s quite traditional, albeit with a slightly unusual ambience – difficult to pin down what exactly, perhaps something like the style of an old country house hotel.
The main bar area is to the right and this is an L-shaped room with parquet wood flooring adjacent to the bar counter and a smaller carpeted seating area at the front. This has maroon paintwork on the walls, and a stone fire-place with a wood burning stove off to the right and there was a massive pile of logs stacked up next to this. A shelf to the left housed a number of books, a few board games and a very old radio set. Seating here was a mixture of Chesterfield arm-chairs and some very low old sofas. A smaller snug in the centre of the pub also had a wood burning stove, and this led through in to a room painted in a turquoise hue that was perhaps more geared up for dining. A large selection of old clocks covered the wall at one end and beyond this another leg of the room led to an open kitchen.
There was a good choice of beers on tap which on this occasion were Glastonbury Thriller, Blindman’s Superstar, Lyme Regis Cobb and Oakhill along with Beatnik Billy and Red Hen from Worleys. Ciders meanwhile were Thatcher’s Gold and Haze as well as Copse House cider which was a new one on me.
