Went to eat at the Oak yesterday evening with the family and had a lovely meal. In fact, it was so nice, that my wife and I returned again tonight when we couldn't decide what to have for dinner!? The food was exceptional and the service was excellent too. The menu has a wide choice to suit all tastes and... More

First time I've been to The Oak, I actually had never heard of it! Have to say it was so so so good! The garden was lovely, great atmosphere, very welcoming and the food was awesome. We both had the kebabs, me a mixed one and hers chicken. Will definitely be returning very soon!

We use this restaurant regularly and the food is consistently excellent. They have wonderful monthly events and sre very community minded with a lovely garden area. The service is not as consistent as the food, with the last 3 visits having disjointed main courses so some people still eating well after everyone else have finished duevto staggered delivery. Everyone always... More

My wife and I were looking for a place to eat as we were staying in the area. The reviews for this place looked promising. We arrived and could see that it was very busy, however in anticipation we had booked a table beforehand. We were shown to our table and ordered drinks. My wife and I ordered the anti... More

I was told by a colleague about this little gem. I needed somewhere that was different but at the same time a little special. The pub was very busy on arrival at 7.45 the staff were rushing around with orders but we were greeted and shown to our table promptly. The waiting staff looked after us allowing just the right...

A great big thank you to the Chef and staff at The Oak for a brilliant Pork Spit Roast that was enjoyed by 41 pensioners from a major international oil company. The food was excellent and great value for money and the front-of-house staff were welcoming and very professional. Well done everyone - I'm sure we will be coming back!

Had reason to visit this nice old place a few times recently when catching up with friends and family. The recent cider festival was a sell out, literally, standing room only in the ample garden, guest cider and ales flying down peoples throats as if they were going to be put on ration soon! Nice real hog roast and BBQ... More

I enjoyed my meal at the oak although the sirloin steak I had, had more fat than meat, but the meat I did have was delicious and the Diane sauce was fantastic. I would have had pie but we were told there was no pie on today. My husband had the hanging kebab which looked amazing but the meat was... More

I'm a regular here but my visit this week the food was so delicious it warranted another review! Try the mixed kebab. OMG, Greek salad was one if the best I've tasted and the meat and haloumi was perfect. Think I am have to go again this weekend just for that meal alone!
