Visited with friends midweek lunchtime. We hadn't booked but got seated and looked after straight away.
Good menu with plenty of options from light bites to big meals.
In our group we opted for a fish butty (massive portion, plenty of fish) lasagne and chorizo pasta. All very tasty, great portions and well presented.

South Kilvington is a beautiful village and the Old Oak Tree pub and restaurant is definitely worth a visit.. it gets busy so pre-booking is a good idea. we arrived in the village - stayed at the Old Rectory and despite not having booked we got a table Welcome was very friendly, extensive and interesting menu, good and prompt service, good range of wines and beers and excellent value. would most definitely recommend and will return when next in the area. it also offers accommodation.

A very popular place so try and book in advance, with pleasant, friendly staff eager to please, but some of the waitresses look about 12 and I felt bad seeing them loaded up with so much to carry! However well gened up on the menu and quite efficient, except for forgetting to bring my popadum until I had nearly finished but so apologetic that I forgave her immediately - bless!
Food delicious and lots of it, well cooked and presented. Loved the touch of free warm rolls and lashings of butter with the very generous starters. I ordered a curry and asked for it extra hot, for a typical English pub they did a marvellous job and for once I got a bit of a tingle. Many thanks to the chef for customising it!! Was pleasantly surprised when I asked for Mango chutney that they had it . Couldn't grumble at the food and appreciated the free coffee top up.
Loved the art work on the walls all done by local people - obviously a place well used by locals which is always a good sign and the little caring touches made it a place worth returning to even though it was slightly overcrowded and noisey towards the end as 2 big groups came in. Thanks to all concerned for careing!

Very tasty, home cooked. Orders arrived very quickly. Would go back if in the area again. One of the few places open on a Monday.
