Popped in here for a quick drink and snack lunch. The parking is a little sparse, but we managed to find somewhere to leave the car and went in to sit in the bar. They have a large TV at the end which was a little distracting, but the bar is light and airy with lots of high stools/chairs that... More

Seven of us were visiting the area for the weekend and we had been to see the extraordinarily picturesque and interesting St Thomas a Becket church at Fairfield. We asked a local to recommend a pub for lunch and she suggested the Royal Oak. We all had different requirements and I was concerned they might not be happy that we... More
