Description: This Beautiful 17th Century pub boasts a strong historical heritage with large gardens and stunning views of the South Downs. Our team extend a warm welcome to you at The Royal Oak in West Lavington, Midhurst. Located a short distance from the Goodwood Estate near Chichester and the Cowdray Estate near Midhurst, this rural village is the ideal setting for our charming English Country pub. The perfect spot for a splendid escape to enjoy British Cuisine, Cask Ales, Delicious Wines and our log fire burner for those cosier nights. We proudly source from local producers and foragers, changing our menus to suit the availability of "in season" fayre from field to fork.

We visited the Royal Oak with friends after returning from holiday. It's a while since we have eaten at the Oak, and we were not disappointed. I had a very nice Chicken and mushroom pie, very tasty, succulent chicken with plenty of sauce. The other three of the group had Crayfish salad, scampi and a steak. All nicely presented and very tasty.

It is great to see this pub busy and back with some character. For some years in my younger days, the 'Oak' was my second home! Then it had character, a good school of local drinkers and was a great place to be. Latterly it had a checkered history of managers/publicans. So, I was pleasantly surprised that it now has returned to some of the 'Oak' I knew and loved. Thank you.

Been here a few times. Food quality good esp the steaks and salads. Not too far from the South Downs so a great place to stop on way back into Midhurst.

Staff friendly and helpful as always and will happily go back.

Only small issue is the manner in which you order food i.e. You can only order food once people who arrived previously have ordered theirs.

We visited on a car run there were 16 of us for lunch and when we arrived the staff very friendly and polite. We ordered from the menu a variety of dishes and the food arrived very quick and all together, everyone enjoyed the food.
The royal oak is set in a stunning area.

We did drop in on a sunny Monday evening and sat outside.
The food didn't take too long to come out and was excellent and very well presented, a nice cold glass of wine with a stunning view on a summers evening, its what dreams are made of... well I will be dreaming of it for a lot longer ! !
