Perfect country pub!

The staff are brilliant and the chefs are great. We've now been in for drinks, parties, New Year meals and romantic dinners and each... read more

I visited the Oak inn, for a friends birthday, as the restaurant had been recommended to us. We were not disappointed- if you are looking for a good night, with excellent food and a great atmosphere, you cannot go wrong. Thanks.

Organised a surprise birthday meal for 26 people, restaurant couldn't have been more helpful from start to finish. The food was excellent, I have eaten here before and just happened to mention a certain dessert which we liked. Although it wasn't on the menu, they did offer to make it for us, these are the touches which make a good... More

After careful consideration, my sister and I decided on this venue for our Mum's 70th birthday celebrations. We were not disappointed. As promised, menus were emailed to us beforehand, to gather orders from the guests ( any last minute changes were catered for without any problems). We were welcomed in to the room the morning of the party, to decorate... More

Hi Simon, just a brief note to say thank you for the excellent dinner we had yesterday lunchtime at the Oak Inn. The private room for our party of twelve was snug, warm and perfect for our pre-Christmas family get-together. The food was excellent and the service was perfect - a big thank you from all my family to you... More

Was in the area again with friends and having had a great meal before in the restaurant a couple of years ago we went for the bar menu with a couple of pints. Beer was obviously well looked after (Butty Bach/Doom Bar) and the hearty sausages/burger/faggots really hit the spot - ideal for an autumnal day. This place provides always... More

Sorry, I hate to write a bad review, but unless this establishment gets its act together, we won't visit any time soon. We had booked a table for lunch, no one else was eating in the bar and when the food finally came it was dismal. Two young girls on the bar seemed undertrained and the whole place seems a... More

The food when it came was lovely, but the wait was extremely long, with no apologies once it did arrive. Some of the food orders were incorrect and we had to send things back. Also had to ask for things like a spoon for the soup, a steak knife and sugar for the coffee. They weren't even busy, there were... More
