3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This is an old pub which has now added four bedrooms. The welcome was warm and friendly and it was nice to be shown to our room and an offer to carry our case. The room was pleasantly decorated with a seemingly new carpet. Hostess tray with tea, coffee and biscuits temptingly provided. In the bathroom, a full size bath,... More

We have started using the Oak over the last 3 months and have enjoyed a very good meal on every occasion. Good service and good food , straight forward menu that will appeal to most people. Well worth a visit lunch time and evenings.

Visited the restaurant for an evening meal for two. We were the only people in the restaurant. Quickly became clear why they had no other customers. We were severed by a smart looking your lad by the name of George, he is very rude & clearly not suitable for the hospitality business. Food is very bland, no presentation, any drinks... More

Lovely lunch in the dog friendly bar. Food was good, staff friendly and helpfull. Have had drinks here a few times in the past sitting the beer garden with our dog. But this was our first time eating here. Good selection on the menu.

After several unsuccessful attempts to get food near Defford on Saturday, The Oak Inn were most accommodating. Other places were fully booked (although empty tables). The Staff were excellent and food very good.

We booked the restaurant for eight for lunch. When we arrived we were told the restaurant was closed so they put the 8 of us around an unsatisfactory arrangement of tables in the bar. Difficult as one was in a wheelchair. Very limited menu. Soup arrived had to ask for bread. This arrived some time later when soup was eaten.... More

My wife & I booked for a meal & had high hopes. We initially had to try & get attention to be served for over 30 minutes before anyone took any notice of us. We then ordered our food & drinks, the drinks took 10 minutes to arrive & the glasses were dirty. The food arrived 40 minutes later was... More

Hi Steve Thanks for taking the time to hide behind trip advisor to post your review! I thought I should respond to you to clear up some matters of importance as your review is lacking in both honesty and fact. Firstly there is no way you have stood at our bar waiting for 30 minutes to get served.... I appreciate... More

Our party of 15 friends enjoyed an excellent reunion and Sunday lunch at the Oak Inn today. I had booked for 13 but two more asked to join us at the eleventh hour, which the staff dealt with without fuss. We had the lounge to ourselves and it was about the right size – larger groups would be more comfortable... More

We stopped here as the Coventry Arms was shut, so we stopped later than we had planned. It was very quiet after the Bank Holiday with a few diners and some chatty locals at the bar. I like it because it is so old, full of characterful and full of characters! Some popping in from work, and tastefully done out,... More
