NOTICE: Venues need your support more than ever during the ongoing coronavirus crisis.

A nationwide lockdown is currently in place in England, and you are required by law to stay at home. Hospitality venues can still provide food takeaway and delivery services, but can only sell alcohol by delivery service.

But please be aware that opening hours and services may be different to those displayed here. Before visiting or ordering from any venue, we strongly advise you to check its website or social media, or get in touch with them first to avoid disappointment.

If you see any details here that need updating, please let us know by submitting feedback on the pub.


Lockdown 3.
The Oak continues to offer its takeaway service. Wednesday (midweek treat), Friday (fish & chips), 4:30-8. Saturday (burgers), 5:30-8.

About the Pub

Friendly community pub. The pub has escaped the fashion for 'opening out' and still keeps its two bar status (complete with the obligatory wooden beams and wood paneling) and a separate games room. As well as the rear garden there is a seating area at the front. The Greene King IPA is by popular demand. The other two hand-pumps may feature ales from local breweries (including the village-based Roughacre brewery) as well as national beers like Spitfire and London Pride. Bottle conditioned Roughacre beers are always available. Sausage & mash, featuring locally sourced sausages, are free for drinkers on Wednesday evening. Thursday is steak night, Friday is fish & chip night. Food Saturday evenings - pre-book only. Sunday roasts.

Formerly the Cock Inn, it became the Oak in April 2019. Schoolboys no longer snigger.
