Set meal very good value, but service can be a bit slow

Probably best restaurant in quite a wide area. Set meal was excellent value with a fair choice. A la carte offered a good choice for very different tastes. Meals were well presented and cooked. Service is a little slow, but very pleasant. Would return here if I come back to the area. In fact that's... read more

We've made a couple of visits to The Oak, which is not far from home. Our most recent visit was last night, August 2015, for a family birthday. We had pre-booked a table in the restaurant, which wasn't busy - two other parties were eating at the same time as us. The menu offered something for everyone, and we had... More

Sunday evening food in the area is not so easy to find. It seems they still serve the lunch menu here up to 7pm last orders. That is what we did and it was more than worth it. You can choose between the bar and the restaurant, so we chose the bar as there was a big party in the... More

Booked in advance. Party of five. Pleasant surroundings. One of our party ordered "The Drunken Bull" only to be advised that it wasn't available. We felt this should have been advised when we were given our menus. Food that we did have was well cooked and tasty. One of our party had "Catch of the Day" which was good, however... More

Excellent Sunday lunch. Huge portions of home cooked food that was definitely value for money. My niece and nephews didn't miss a traditional children's menu one bit.

We had a superb lunch at this 'Inn/ restaurant on Sunday with around 20 of us. The menu choice was wonderful and the food served lived up to the expectations. Our 3 course menu with coffee afterwards was superb! Lovely to have fresh colourful vegetables with full accompaniments to main courses. The staff who served our table were just delightful... More

We are looking to move to the area so we tried out this pub for a drink and loved the choice of ales. So we visited again for Sunday lunch which was excellent, the staff were very friendly and welcoming, the food excellent. We then visited for an evening meal and drinks and once again it was great.

We had a very enjoyable evening! The restaurant is beautiful with lovely decor! It's got a very warm and cozy feeling and we felt very welcome! Amazing food at reasonable prices! Staff were very friendly and nothing seemed to be a problem!

we booked our table for 7pm because we had a 4 year old with us, we were still waiting for our food to arrive at 8pm. The food itself was very good but if they want to keep customers they seriously need to get their act together.
