Clean and welcoming. Christmas lunch for eight. Nice log fire to gather round when we first arrived. Very well cooked food with good assortment of vegetables. All the usual trimmings and side dishes. Salmon starter was flavoursome and satisfying. Not sure about the 'trifle'.

No idea, you'd have to ask the licensees as we don't have children.

Hi John, we have a ramp that we can put down for wheelchair access. Probably best to phone ahead 01636 918130 and let us know when you are coming and we will have it out ready.

Oscar's Inn is a country pub in the heart of town serving an impressive range of real ales, craft lagers and traditional ciders. The ambience is relaxed and ideally given to socialising in small groups, whilst trying a tasty offering from our constantly evolving menu and comparing notes on the impressive range of brews. Oscar's has two bars, each boasting a separate personality with the Wilde Bar being the perfect place to sit, relax and read or even share one of our signature 16" pizzas, and the Peterson bar is suited to sharing a bottle of wine in a relaxing environment. The Peterson bar hosts live music, often with a Jazz theme, several times a week and the warm décor, brown leather Chesterfields and comfortable seating areas make it the ideal place to kick back and unwind. The music and beer line ups are posted frequently on our Facebook page. Free Wi-Fi is available in both bars and the pub prides itself on being both family and dog friendly.
