With the new announcements of the easing of lockdown restrictions, there are exciting times ahead for visitors to the Royal Oak in Bishopstone. From perfect picnics to fabulous farm tours, for wild camping or a simple stroll along the historic Ridgeway, there is something for everyone – come along to visit, or book to eat or stay.
“After we’d cleared the snow off the tables on April 12th when we were allowed to re-open, it’s been sunshine and streams of people ever since. Serving full lunch and supper menus, plus organic sourdough pizzas all afternoon, customers have been basking in pale sunshine, wrapped in blankets and the occasional electric waistcoat—a personal electric fire, battery powered. Remarkable. We’re open every day serving from our new garden kitchen, and after May 17th we’ll let you inside the place!Tim Finney
