MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

The Royal Oak started out as a drinks shelter catering for the workmen building the local church and is reputedly one of the oldest pubs in the country; Oliver Cromwell supposedly stayed here before the Battle of Edgehill in 1642. It’s a characterful place, with a lovely atmosphere, from the cosy bar to the bright, airy dining room.
Chef-owner Richard Craven has a passion for British produce and his cooking follows a strong farm-to-fork ethos, with produce coming from small producers in and around the nearby hills and estates; he favours organic and wild ingredients and game is often shot to order.
Assured, understated dishes are created with obvious care and a delicate touch – most have just 3-4 components, which allows each first-class ingredient to really shine. Richard’s charming wife Solanche looks after the service – and she clearly knows her wines.
