The only pub in the country named The Queen's Oak.400 years old & built on a Roman Ruin.A proper English pub serving wholesome homemade British Quisine and a superb range of beverages including cask conditioned real ales.There are plenty of picturesque walks nearby and just opposite is St Micheals Church. We welcome dogs, horses and well behaved children and have a large, safe garden and play area.An excellent venue for a country style wedding, christening or any celebration. We also have a BBQ & Hog Roast.You may get to see Morris Dancers who frequent the pub in the summer months or come and play an old game of Aunt Sally.

Dog-friendly rural pub

Google maps told me it was closed but I drove to it with my dog and was pleased to find it open. Dog friendly, WiFi, good food good beers. Not a gourmet pub, but we don't always want that. I'll make sure I find an excuse to come again.

This pub is a very traditional local. The beer is good; the food is not adventurous but its tasty pub grub. There is a snug bar on one side and a larger bar and dining area on the other.

We had lunch at The Queen's Oak on Saturday, six months after our last visit which was far too long. We learned that the pub has changed hands since our last visit but we were pleased to see the friendly, positive attitude of the staff has not changed. Also, most importantly, the chef remains the same! We were given a... More

Were looking for somewhere to host a buffet for 16 people who had attended my Dad's funeral. Had doubts when first entering the pub as it seemed drab and tired but on meeting the owner, we were so impressed by his sensitivity and willingness to ensure the lunch was exactly as we wanted that we decided to book. We were... More

Visited for lunch with friends. Staff were very chatty, friendly and welcoming. The food was all lovely, but the chips especially were amazing! Just could've done with a few more of them. Would definitely visit again.

Me and my partner popped in for some food yesterday and I must say the food was very nice and the staff were extremely friendly! A little too friendly according to my partner as the bar staff were a little too "touchy feely" especially in the gents toilets. anyway...... on to another positive note the drinks were very fairly priced...

Came here on a Saturday afternoon with friends and family for a bite to eat. The outside area is nice with plenty of room for the kids to run around, inside could be a lot better and shows a real lack of care for potential dining guests. It's quite tatty and does not make you want to sit and eat... More

Popped in after work for a meal after having the food recommended by colleagues. The pub has a great deal of character, well used by the locals. Good community feel to the place. Bar staff were friendly and welcoming. The usual Brakspear ales were available, with the monthly guest ale of Marstons Canadian Red on tap. Had a refreshing pint... More

Last minute midweek dinner. Food took a while to arrive, realised why when it did! The burger was humongous, tasty but a little too much for me, my partner managed though! We felt like the staff favoured the locals. Don't know if they were a bit preoccupied as it was quiz night. The pub was a little dark inside, think... More
