Nice Country Pub

I had lunch here with two friends and had a very enjoyable meal. The welcome and service was good and we weren't rushed, good choice of ales and food.

We did enjoy lunch because of the quality of... More

We visited the oak inn for the first time last Saturday evening. There were 7 of us and the staff were very friendly and efficient. The thing we were most impressed with though was the food, incredibly reasonable and absolutely delicious. We will certainly be visiting again.

After driving past this roadside pub for years on our way to and from Malvern, we finally stopped and went in. From the outside it doesn't catch one's eye but park up (plenty spaces available) and go inside. This was our 2nd lunchtime visit the first was in July and it didn't disappoint. We sat in the cosy front room... More

Lovely pub serving excellent real ale and very good value food. 2nd time had visited in a short period. The first time a family occasion, 12 of us and the 2nd time 2 couples. Really enjoyed our dinner, attentive staff and a roaring fire. Will certainly go again.
