Visited the Shady Oak again today (15 April 2014) and once again we had two superb main courses. The atmosphere in the pub is very relaxing and the members of staff are usually welcoming and helpful. Whatever you choose from the starters, main course or dessert will be hot, well presented and delicious.Try to save room for dessert, the home... More

The first thing you feel when you walk through the door and approach the bar is that the landlady doesn't like you. The second thing you feel after asking for a drink is that the landlady prefers the content of her laptop to speaking to you. In fact the landlady should lock the door and deter all visitors to the... More

My husband, myself and our dog had a late lunch here today. We were out walking and before setting out I researched dog friendly places to get some lunch and The Shady Oak came up. I am glad it did. Perfect location, free parking and a very pleasant pub. There is a little room just to the left as you... More

We booked a last minute long weekend at the shady oak and I'm so glad we did, the room was lovely, owners were very friendly and helpful, the food (particularly breakfast!) was yummy, and it is perfectly situated for walks. Would definitely recommend. :)

Perfect location at the end of the reservoir walk and were more than happy to take dogs. Our food was delicious and hearty and the atmosphere very friendly. In fact it would have been five star had not the service been appalling - our waitress was fine, but the bar attendant was rude, inconsiderate, unhelpful and clearly didn't want to... More
