We went to this local pub for an evening meal. Lovely atmosphere - we stayed and did the pub quiz. I went for the sausage and mash menu which was perfect for a winters evening. Veggie sausage, horseradish mash and veggies with onion gravy. Really tasty. Love the sausage and mash selection - you choose your sausage , type of... More

We are so glad your enjoyed your experience with us. We are a small run family pub with only a few staff, chosen for their friendliness, who end up being part of the family. We feel this gives us a relaxed and friendly environment for people to enjoy our home cooked food. We do not have any "ping" food here... More

We stayed here for 2 nights while attending a folk festival. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. The food was very well cooked, and salads, fruit etc were very fresh. The portions were enormous. Our room was quiet and very comfortable and a good size, with a bath as well as a shower. My only issue was that... More

The Public car park is a short walk away so the trick is to stop out the front, unload, then park. Our room was a good size, clean, with comfortable beds and so was the en-suite. Breakfast was everything you need. Dinner was available on the Sat night and nicely done. Unfortunately they don't do dinner on Sundays so we... More

Great food with large portions and a friendly warm atmosphere. The function room was well decorated and the service was very efficient. A great evening celebrating a 50th Wedding Anniversary in a great pub. Plenty of clean plates confirmed whichever dish was ordered it was well received. Worth a visit if you are in the vicinity.

We booked at the last minute and found it difficult to find anything on Valentines night. So we were very surprised to get a booking at The Oak. It’s a very nice pub that clearly wants to be taken seriously as a restaurant and it should be. I had scallops and my wife had the chicken bruschetta for starters, followed... More
