The Royal Oak is a twenty second jog from the Bull so I was able to make the transition without getting overly wet during a recent Saturday afternoon storm. Outside the front of the pub are some tables and chairs that were empty apart from a single smoker who was trying to shelter from the elements under one of the umbrellas. The interior is quite cosy with small left and right hand bars. The left hand bar houses a pool table, a couple of fruit machines, a pinball table, a fireplace and a jukebox, which was off. There is also a television that was powered down. Putting two and two together I deduced that live sport is not shown here. The L shaped right hand bar is larger and contains seating and an inglenook. Lots of tankards hang from the ceiling and an abundance of horse brasses add to a rustic feel. The bar supports four hand pumps, but alas two of these were off during my visit. This left Harvey’s Best and Dark Star’s Hophead in amongst some premium and standard keg products. The food looked very tasty. Although I didn’t read a menu I did note that the specials started at £10.
I found the service to be very friendly and I would have no problem returning to this pub that I rated as the best of the three in the village.

A two minute walk from the Bull Inn and more of a locals pub buzzing with conversation. The area directly in front of the bar is a narrow corridor which can make it difficult to move around when it's busy. To the right is an eating area and there's another seating area to the left with a pool table. Atractive exterior and outside seating for smokers. Ales available and a couple of ciders and perries.

Visited as passing trade on a Saturday lunchtime. Very welcoming olde-worlde pub just off the main A272. There was a little local trade obvious but most punters, like myself, came by car. The food looked a bit pricey, but when it arrived the portions were huge and very well presented. Best of all, they were brought to the table by the most strikingly beautiful young waitress with the most melting of smiles! Real ales by wide choice and of excellent quality.
