We had a quick family lunch before heading off on a walk in the local countryside. Very pleasant and accommodating. The food was very decent and just what we wanted.

When you pull into the front car park you are faced with the frontage of a seemingly small pub. However, this belies a most spacious inside, and in particular a large, roomy dining room. We were nicely welcomed, and seated at a large round table, perfect for the extended family, including the two grand children. An excellent menu, good food,... More

Seven of us had a business meeting and dinner at the Oak. The food was very tasty and the service excellent; moreover, the staff found us a quiet corner so we could chat amongst ourselves.

Although the restaurant was busy non stop, one sitting after another, they were still able to produce an excellent family lunch for six of us. Starters were super, especially liver pate also black pudding spring roll. Roast were perfectly cooked and good size portions. The salmon was amazing! Just a shame the cheesecake didn't live up to expectations. A shame... More

It was a set menu for Mother's Day but plenty of choice for everyone and we had a lovely 3 course meal. The staff were friendly and attentive despite being rushed off their feet as it was extremely busy. The pub doesn't look much from outside, but it's decorated nicely inside and we'd definitely return if in the area again.

We visit this small, traditional pub every couple of months and are never disappointed with the menu. On our latest visit this week we had prawns in chilli oil, the soup of the day and the most wonderful duck breast, cooked to perfection. All this washed down with a fine pint of Wye Valley HPA, and all served by the... More

My friend and I often frequent the Oak for a catch up meal and have always enjoyed our experience. Last night however I was appalled by the lack of customer service we received. We ordered, a ribeye and a fillet steak for our main, When they arrived it was clear that the ribeye has been bashed (very thin) in an... More

This pub is set back on the main road, one of those places that you catch a glimpse of as you pass by. Luckily for us we had looked this one up with SAT NAV directions loaded we arrived without fuss to an unimposing 'old traditional English pub' with a surprise. The premises have a restaurant, a lounge and a... More
