The Royal Oak

Hugely popular with local country walkers, this rural gem welcomes humans and dogs alike. Perched at the edge of the New Forest village green, the Royal Oak is delightfully rustic – thatched roof, old wooden beams and roaring log fires. Traditional dishes are locally sourced, depending on seasonal availability, while the eggs and bacon come courtesy of animals raised on site. The free-range, home smoked chicken breasts and fresh, dressed crabs are particular favorites, as is the range of cask ales served behind the bar.
