What a little gem. Genuinely friendly welcome from the staff and the best pork pies we have tasted in a long time. They get them in ready made from a local baker and then bake them on the premises to ensure they are really fresh. The pork filling is generous and well seasoned, the pastry lovely and crisp with not a soggy bottom to be seen. The beer is well looked after and the Dorset cider is good. Mind out for the perambulating bollards - otherwise known as donkeys and ponies - as none of them seem to have any road sense!
I took Canadian relatives here as they wanted a Ploughmans lunch in the forest,I am so glad I chose The Royal Oak,the choice of Ploughmans was the best I have ever seen,stilton,local cheddar,mackeral,gammon three different types of bread in the bread basket along with pickles and chutney,we all thoroughly enjoyed the food and all went away full up!
The staff are all very friendly and I will definately be back!
This is better than good. Exactly what a pub should be. Food is not the main attraction here, it's very basic, but exactly right. A proper country" Local" and there aren't many of them left. Are there?
Most certainly deserves award and can confirm hospitality and a fine selection of cask ales and two draft ciders what a choice the food is simlpe but suerb quality and local a great country bub!
