Visited The Oast House a couple of times. Good atmosphere. The place is always very busy at weekends ,and can be a nightmare getting served. If you hate waiting to be served give this place a miss.

The Oast House is just the place you’d want to eat on a cold winters day. The surrounding area was really comfortable and relaxing, good vibe. The food was really tasty, and not too expensive. I have been to this place a few times now...More

Visited 2 days before Christmas and managed to get a seat in one of the outdoor teepees. Great atmosphere and lovely food. We had the fondue for two people which was £17.95.
