Description: Bridging the gap between country inn & local restaurant The White Oak is an independent and contemporary 'Gastro Pub' where the kitchen & service sets out to please. A L Carte & Set menus also decent value (£15/19 for two/three courses at lunch and dinner). The traditional Roast is served on Sundays alongside the A La Carte. There's also plenty of good drinking on the Corney & Barrow wine list (look for Delamotte Grand Cru Champagne, Archaval-Ferrer Malbec, & 'Psi' Tempanillo from Michael Sisseck), Local Ales & Cocktails in the Bar. The relaxed dining room's thick beams, cream chandeliers and widely spaced, bare tables match the food's smart, unfussy tone, while warm, engaging staff and a compact, broadly priced wine list also fit the bill.

We attended for my birthday dinner, and were impressed by the quality of food. Menu has numerous gluten free options, which made it easy for me to decide what to have. Both our food was delicious and well plated.

Only complaint was that the service could have been better. The host was amazing, so kind and thoughtful. But our waitress was abrupt and not very attentive.

Would return for sure for the quality of food

Went with our family friends for Sunday lunch.. we were a table of nine and all dishes were excellent..all hot, looked and tasted great! Most of us had the beef roast with yorkshire pudding all cooked at different levels.. but all came out hot and cooked to perfection. they even give you your own small side plate of roast potatoes…. glorious.. crispy but soft inside !! good portions and really well cooked, plus fabulous presentation. what more could you want!! The service and attention was also top notch. the restaurant area was clean and modern and the atmosphere is cool rather than homely...a light, comfortable dining area with views onto the garden…. it worked well.. I also thought it was great value for the quality received. All in all a great venue with excellent service, great value and amazing quality of food and presentation.

We have eaten here a number of times, from family birthdays, to quiet evenings with the wife and quick lunches and never been disappointed. The staff are always polite and helpful and the food delicious. Our go to place when we eat out in the area. Keep it up
