Celebrate With Us
We’re opening on Thursday 9th July at midday!
We hope you’ve all stayed safe and well during these crazy times. Whilst we’re all adapting to our new ‘normal’, we’d like to share our plans for opening the Royal Oak and the changes that will be in place to ensure that we can all enjoy the pub safely, in line with Government guidelines.
We will be serving food and the menu will be updated on our website soon. We’re planning different opening hours for July and will be reviewing this regularly in order to get back to more usual trading hours as soon as we can.
Thursday-Saturday 12-3.00pm & 6.00pm-11.00pm
Some of the changes we’re making:
A one way system will be in place, with the entrance to the pub through the front door and the exit through the door to the garden and out into the car park. We’ll have everything clearly signposted and marked so you’ll know exactly what to do.
There will be hand sanitiser stations at both the exit and entry doors and outside the toilets and we’d encourage you to use them as you arrive and throughout your stay.
When you arrive at the bar, we’ll take you to your table and take your orders for food and drinks.
We’d encourage booking a table in advance even if you’re planning to pop in for a few drinks, as walk-ins will be limited during peak times and we can’t break the social distancing rules. We’re booking tables in the garden in the same way too.
Due to Government Guidelines we’re advised to stick to a maximum of 6 people per table.
As we’ve been really careful to plan the pub to meet the minimum social distance of a minimum 1m+, we ask that you don’t move any furniture, however much you want to feng shui the pub!
There will be signage to point out the best way to move around the pub, especially to the toilets.
Much as we love our little guests, we’d ask that children stay with you at all times.
Doggy friends are still welcome but we ask that they stay on leads, no matter how cute.
Please respect social distancing and personal space and be mindful that some people may be less comfortable than others.
As timings will be even more important to help manage space, please let us know if you’re running late or if anything changes with your booking as soon as you can.
All staff will have their temperature taken daily and they will also be using appropriate PPE.
There will be regular cleaning of door handles and common areas.
Most of all we want to see as many of you as possible. Please get in touch to book your table and we’ll make your time with us as enjoyable as possible.
Best wishes from Andy & the team at the Royal Oak!
We offer a range of beers including locally brewed real ales, lager, cider, wine by the glass and bottle, and a selection of non-alcoholic drinks with the driver in mind.
Families and children are always welcome in the bar or dining room, and small to medium-sized dogs on leads, are permitted at any of the tables in the bar - we recommend you book in advance to avoid disappointment.
Here, at The Royal Oak we offer superb food, showcasing local, seasonal produce. Our hands-on dedicated chef is incredibly knowledgeable on seasonal produce and writes his menus accordingly. We work in a very flexible way changing dishes and menus regularly to coincide with, not only seasonal produce but also the very best quality Somerset has to offer.
We also offer bespoke set menus for special occassions or large parties to suit all tastes and budgets, please don't hesitate to get in touch if you are interested in something a little different. If you have a private event you'd like us to host, get in touch!
Sunday Lunch at the Royal Oak is made from scratch using only the best, locally sourced ingredients.
We use locally sourced rare breed beef, crispy pork belly, and free range chicken, all with seasonal veg and homemade sauces and gravy.
If you don't eat meat we always have a fantastic vegetarian dish which is currently a Pecan & Date Nut Roast.
All our puddings are homemade and include family favourites.
We recommend reserving a table for Sunday lunch, as it is a very popular time for us.
