Lovely lunch, friendly helpful staff, who managed to squeeze us in, over the busy xmas period, and without prior booking! Nice food, great atmosphere!

THE BEST NEW YEAR IN YEARS !!
We have been coming to the oak for NYE for years , I must say the new owners certainly pulled out the stops this year , it was an amazing night , plenty for the kids to do and great people , I think the guy from Solihull (review below)must have took a wrong turn somewhere on the way to Leicester as his review doesn’t sound like the pub we were in , maybe he will invest in a sat Nav so his next review is accurate and on the right place !!!

To take on a village pub in a trade that has been decline for years is a gamble these days however, if you have determination and a clear vision of what you need to do to make a success of the business, you’re halfway there I would say.

Since the new team have taken over we have seen improvements week in, week out and it seems there is a clear plan for 2020 that should entice people to visit from far and wide. I wish the team every success.

I was at the New Years Eve bash with my wife and 3 kids, along with many of our friends and yes, it was extremely busy for sure however, isn’t that what is expected of a popular local pub on NYE? Queues weren’t massive at the bar, snacks were offered around and the kids had their own room that had pool table, karaoke and games so they didn’t have to put up with their parents if they so chose. I’ve no idea if I got a welcome drink or not (not bothered), the doorman did turn away people without tickets to his credit and I didn’t see gangs of lads in toilets and my 3yr old is a prolific visitor! I thought it was a great night as did my family and friends.

A great effort, a great Xmas and NewYear and I look forward to a few more drinks and food this year.

The Royal Oak has always been the best pub in the village and The new team at The Royal Oak have brought a breadth of fresh air to the village pub which was needed, I know there were teething problems, but you have all worked hard and sorted it, keep up the good work to all
