Have been visiting the Shady Oak, since I was (very) young. Have a photo of exterior as it was, well before it was extended/altered. Seen a succession of landlords come and go. The Landlord & Landlady are giving it a really good go, are very down to earth, friendly and work extremely hard, as they have been since they moved in. A vast improvement on the previous 'Piano Bar' !!! Meals are well cooked, and a good choice selection, staff are friendly and can't fault anything. Please give them a break, as when moved in they had a lot to organise due to 'the other lot' who had moved out........ As for credit/debit cards not being accepted, well, there are enough signs around to inform people of the fact.
