THE ROYAL OAK

Loved by the community since it was established in the 1600’s, The Royal Oak has a rich history of local patrons including Reverend Yeend from the neighbouring church who would often be found taking a drink before, after (and sometimes during!) the service. With its heavily beamed ceiling and traditional decor, it’s the perfect place to enjoy a drink, with a good selection of ales and beers on tap.
