“Imaginative combinations and good service” have earned a “well-deserved” reputation over a dozen years for what is “more a restaurant with a bar than the other way round”. This was not a vintage year for feedback, however, with some reporters feeling its performance “only just scraped by”.

This polished ten-year-old (more restaurant than pub) is a solid performer combining “wonderfully fresh food” and “attentive, personal service”. “It’s so good I’d consider selling up and moving so it could be my local!”

“A consistently high standard of cooking and ingredients” means it’s “always a pleasure” to visit this “lovely, welcoming and reliable gastro-pub, which has a beautiful garden for a good summer’s day”. “Next day we travelled First Class on British Airways to Johannesburg, and we both agreed that our £17.95 lunch at the White Oak was the better meal!”

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
