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!”
