Managed to eat outside in the last of the warm weather, and unlike pubs with beer gardens, this outside space really is an extension of the restaurant inside. Excellent service to the table and a very high standard of food and interesting menu. It's way more than a gastropub. However, it doesn't get 5 stars from me because it's also way more expensive than a gastropub - I knew this before I went having seen the menu online, so it's not really a criticism, but for me, the VFM wasn't quite there for a steak and chips. Do recommend though.

This is a nice place. About the only complaint that it is sometimes hard to get into - not a surprise because the food is above average at least and sometimes outstanding but always good value.

Service is good, wine list is extensive and the outdoor area very pleasant if there is any hint of sun.

Would definitely recommend booking at bsier times.

I loved the Greene Oak. We'd just arrived in England from a long-haul flight from Australia and this was the first place we went to, to have dinner. What a wonderful introduction to England. It is a charming english pub in a delightful country setting. We had a lovely meal of baked camembert, duck and gnocchi. We thought the price of our meal and drinks was reasonable. We loved it and highly recommend it.

My husband and I have visited the Greene Oak several times, and recently visited twice in a couple of weeks. As the title suggests, we have never had a bad meal here.

The restaurant is nicely decorated in a typical 'gastro pub' style, and the ambience is always excellent. It's always busy, meaning there is some level of chatter around you, but not so much you can't have a conversation. Besides, who wants to eat in eerie quiet feeling like everyone is listening in? My husband and I are both in our early 30s and I have never noticed the previously mentioned 'saga louts' - there is always a good mix of ages and couples/groups/families. As usual, we received a warm welcome and attentive service, with my wine brought out with my main meal just as requested!

On our last visit, my husband had the excellent chicken liver parfait, and I had the very tasty vine tomato and black pepper soup. Another reviewer criticised the size of the soup, but my portion size was ample, given that this is only a starter (and I eat quite a lot!). We also had plenty of bread, and were offered more between courses.

For our main course, we shared the chateaubriand which was melt in the mouth (although we both agreed it wasn't quite as good as the last time we had it, although we couldn't pinpoint exactly why). The chips are amazing (and very hot!) and by the end of the meal we were both full to bursting. It's very rare that neither of us can manage a dessert, but we had to decline on this occasion.

Another reviewer mentioned the limited menu, however I believe this reflects the restaurant's commitment to using local and seasonal produce. Having visited twice in two weeks, I can also confirm that the menu was slightly different, in keeping with this ethos.

The Greene Oak will remain as our 'go to' place when we want to celebrate a special occasion.
