“Charming 200 year old village inn turned popular restaurant with rooms in a quiet village. Cosy rooms with delicate pretty wallpaper and beamed ceilings. Downstairs a small bar pulls a good pint but the restaurant is the real showstopper. A lovely country escape. ”

Hotel Overview

“An excellent example of a revamped village inn (in this case brick and flint and very pretty), now a popular meeting place for convivial lunches and dinners in its beamed restaurant. Good wine list; try the local champagne cider as an aperitif. Accompanying bedrooms are not large but well equipped with quality beds and good bathrooms. TVs and DVDs, books and magazines, minibars and complimentary newspapers.”

Recommended for
  • Foodies
  • Feast at the award winning restaurant, serving fresh, local and totally seasonal produce- a fine example of British cooking.
  • Country Escape
  • Ideally placed for country pursuits such as rambling, fishing and shooting, with hearty food and cosy interiors to return to.

The Royal Oak Inn

"A value-for-money option with luxurious beds, and spacious, well-equipped rooms. The fire-lit restaurant, which serves excellent food, is a real focal point."

Royal Oak Inn

"It's all stripped-down simplicity: exposed brickwork, original beams, knapped-flint walls, acid-bathed tables, leather armchairs, cheerful log fire in the cast-iron grate."
