We visited the Oaks three times, for snacks and breakfast. The wood fired brisket of beef pizza was very nice and the breakfast was pleasant anf being buffet style you could help yourself to as much as you want but at £12 per head it was on the pricey side and wasn't head and shoulders above a Premier Inn or...

We had specific dietary requirements and Oaks' wonderful afternoon tea chefs catered for us in real style. We have been here twice for afternoon tea and both times they exceeded our expectations. We really appreciated them taking into consideration our requirements and we had a really special time celebrating our Dad's birthday & the other time just hanging out with... More

Ate at the restaurant while a guest at the hotel and in brief, I thought the portion sizes were very very small versus the price. The food, for the cost, wasn't anything special - my dessert was inedible. I had the salmon starter, which was a few small pieces of smoked samlmon and a about two new potatoes forming a... More

Really great food despite being served buffet style. Couldn't fault it, and the live cooking was a nice touch.

We ate twice in this bar and the customer service was second to none. The prices aren't that cheap to be honest and some of the choices aren't VFM e.g. Flatbread but you are in a hotel I suppose. Lovely quiet ambiance which added to a great stay overall.

The Oaks is part of the Forest of Arden Hotel. I ate from the bar menu. My main was the burger, served with fries, which was extremely tasty. The bar does have a guest cask ale, which when I was there was St Austell's Tribute. Perfectly fine. The Oaks also serves breakfast, which for the most part is the standard... More

The Oaks Restaurant is OK, the food average, the prices a little high, but the room lacks the ambience of a stylish restaurant (I prefer the relaxed atmosphere in the Zest Bar) but the Oaks Bar has great character, with a gas fire in the centre of the room making it a cosy place for a drink or two.
