We visited the pub a couple of years ago and as we were in the area again we decided to pop in for a spot of lunch. It was the most perfect relaxing time we have both enjoyed for a long time. Well done on the excellent food and service! We will be back again and again!

Me and my family love the Sunday lunch at this pub. Quality produce, cooked brilliantly. Wonderful size portions, be it starters or mains . If you want one of their fantastic desserts pass on the starters. A lovely pub, friendly staff and nicely priced for the quality that is served up. I drive 55 miles regularly to have lunch at...

Since our daughter and family recently moved to Brookland and had already sampled the delights of the take-away service at the Royal Oak we decided to try there for a main meal. We reserved a table, but due to circumstances actually arrived 45 minutes early. No problem. The pub was not very busy which was just as well because there... More

We eat here fairly regularly, and we've never had a bad meal here. Chris the chef is a fantastic cook and the presentation is always a professional standard - he doesn't skimp on portions either. The staff here are all girls, and very polite and eager to serve, with a friendly attitude and easy manner.

We came here a few Sundays ago and had sunday lunch in the glorious garden. The food was very good (a bit slow but it was very busy and we were in no rush). The only negative aspect were the outside toilets...they could do with a clean. Other than that, it was great.

Most enjoyable meal with 6 friends. The welcome was good from staff and locals. The food was generous and very tasty. A nice pint of Abbots Ale went down smoothly and added to the enjoyment. Nicely served with a smile from the charming waitress.

4 of us ate here while holidaying close by at the end of March and everyone agreed it was a great find. Huge helpings, delicious food, good prices - what's not to like?! Between us over 2 nights we devoured fish and chips, a roast, a rabbit and black pudding pie and a steak and ale pudding. Pleasant cheerful service... More

Just tried the new Friday night curry tasting menu at the Royal Oak in Brookland......delicious! Excellent value at £15 per head (cheaper than a decent takeaway) as you get mixed starters, three different curries, sag aloo, rice and bread....more than the two of us could eat! Authentic? Well it's not the same as the usual fair from your local Indian... More
