Nick and his father Sir Michael Parkinson first set eyes on The Royal Oak in 2001. At the time the pub was very 'pink' and showed little sign of any tender loving care. In July 2001 after a lick of paint and a dose of Lady Mary Parkinson's magic touch the Royal Oak reopened.
In 2008 the team gained a Bib Gourmand. Going from strength to strength in 2010 The Royal Oak attained the acclaimed Michelin star. Today The Royal Oak holds a Michelin Star, three AA Rosettes and a Good Food Guide rating of 5/10.
The menu can be described simply as 'British food cooked to perfection'. We select the best seasonal produce, sourced locally whenever possible but we're not afraid to go further afield to assure the quality. Our food is designed not to be pretentious, but rather to embrace the flavours of the produce and not disguise them with unfamiliar ingredients and complicated cooking methods. The result - deliciously tasty food; we defy you not to scrape the plate.
The interior of The Royal Oak is elegant, stylish and nostalgic - in keeping with her antiquity. An eclectic mix of beautiful art adorns the walls and adds to the charm and magnetism of the pub. The contemporary terrace garden creates a modern contrast and a lovely setting for a drink during the warmer months of the year.
