Small but super menu with a lot of local ingredients, all very well cooked. Great service and a nice atmosphere. Brownies were delicious! Would definitely go back and recommend it if you are in the area.

We spent one night at The Royal Oak in Brookland the past weekend with a couple of friends. Assoon as you enter the pub, you feel the warm atmosphere, itisreally very cosy. Our room, Walland was very spacious, clean and well equiped: goodquality shower thingies, towels and wonderful twin boxsprings with super duvet. The redecorating has been done very tastefully,...

The first thing you notice when you walk in the door, is the friendly greeting and the warm environment that make up The Royal Oak. The rooms are clean and well decorated and the view of the surrounding countryside is very nice. If you get the chance, take in the Wednesday Evening Spit Roast Night, but make sure to make... More

We were guests at The Royal Oak, staying 2 nights in the Burmarsh Room. My wife and I could not fault any aspect of our stay. It was the perfect countryside retreat and one of Kent's best kept secrets. Owners David Rice-Jones and glamourous wife Savannah were wonderful fun hosts and made us feel extremely welcomed; nothing was too much... More

Earlier this week stayed overnight at this charming country pub, and loved every minute of it. Stayed in the 'Fairfield' suite and this was luxurious and spotlessly clean with a double aspect outlook across ponies in the paddocks, bathroom was spacious and ultra modern. In the restaurant the log fire was most welcome as snow was on the ground, and... More

We stayed at the Royal Oak in Brookland, Kent, last night and were welcomed by friendly staff, a lovely room, delicious food, and a really well organised establishment. On arrival, staff warned us that a couple of other larger groups were going to be eating in the restaurant at the same time as us that evening. However, this didn't effect... More

We spent 2 nights at the Royal Oak. David Rhys-Jones is a relaxed and welcoming host. Our room was extremely comfortable and attractively furnished. All the details have been thought through - even a useful OS map - only the slightly basic rubber shower attachment jarred. Despite being in a busy and clearly popular pub, our room was very quiet...
