The Royal Oak Returns

Following extensive refurbishment, we've opened our doors to welcome you back from Saturday 4th July! Thank you for your continued patience and support.

We will be serving drinks:

Monday to Saturday - 12pm to 10pm
Sunday - 12pm to 8pm


Monday to Wednesday - 12pm to 4pm and 6pm to 8pm
Thursday to Saturday - 12pm to 8pm
Sunday - 12pm to 7pm

Our new menu is full of fresh, summer dishes we know you will love!

We want to assure you that service with safety first remains our main priority. So we are offering table bookings only inside the pub (with a two-hour slot for dining) but no bookings are required in our beautiful garden or outdoor terrace. We also have an outside marquee if the sun fails to shine!
Please call 01273 857389 or email to book.

We have taken several measures to aid the safety and wellbeing of our customers and staff. These include:

Sanitiser stations
Meet and greet service

All team wearing visors
One way system in place
Carefully planned position of our tables
A nominated pub safe monitor
Cashless only payments
Regular cleaning of all areas
Staff temperature checks

Please read more below...

More bar space

We've taken this time to review the internal layout of the bar area and made some changes to increase the space available for all of our customers by moving the position of the bar back by 6 feet.

Perspex screens

We have continued to installed Perspex screens where we feel it adds extra protection for both staff and customers.

Hand washing station

On arrival at our fabulous garden, we have now installed an outdoor infrared hand wash station and welly boot wash. Great to clean your hands on arrival or after that long walk over the spectacular South Downs.

We hope the above offers you peace of mind during this time but if you do have any concerns or suggestions, please feel free to speak with our team who will be able to help.


We’d love to see you here soon. To book please call 01273 857389 or email
