Food & Drink
at the Royal Oak

You’ll eat well here. Generous organic food from our farm or our neighbours.

Our family, friends, and farm workers have shared meals and beers here for 10 years and we only serve the food and drink that we enjoy ourselves.

Food

Our menu changes most days and always with the seasons. Depending on the time of year we serve our own lamb and beef and always our own pork, and bacon, sausages and eggs. Our milk comes via Berkeley Farm five miles away – they process our milk, and we buy it back as pasteurised milk and cream, plus staggeringly yellow butter!

Veg is direct from our friends at Westmill Organics a few miles down the road. We also like Laverstoke Park for its buffalo ice cream and Wing Fish at St Mawes for their careful fish supplies. Neighbours for their watercress, rhubarb, courgettes, by the wheelbarrow load, sometimes.

Drink

Always four superb changing real ales from Arkell’s, organic soft drinks and cordials from Belvoir, Big Tom and others; organic wines from Vintage Roots plus their glorious Fleury champagne; and a superb range of gins and whiskies – at least a dozen to choose from.

Farm Safaris for livestock, landscapes and wildlife at Eastbrook Farm

We’re now combining  everything—the pigs, the cows and calves, the landscapes, the wildlife—deer, owls, badgers, flora and fauna generally, although not all of it appears on cue.  Our colleague James Andrews, expert at wildlife photography among other skills, will lead the ‘Safari’ tours, in the red land rover

Tackling the virus crisis ...

We have set up a farm shop at the Royal Oak in Bishopstone for groceries, organic meat and freshly prepared meals to take-away during the current restrictions on in-house dining. Please see our social media for updates and a full list of available produce. 

A lot of love out there for Corned Beef (without a key)

Delighted that our organic Corned Beef is being applauded across the land. 5* reviews with Abel and Cole and a Silver award at British Charcuterie Live!

Clive Hill's Eastbrook Inbetweeners

Clive gives us a twitchers update on all the comings and going on the farm.

"The rookeries in the ash trees around the farm have been active since late February/early March and the early-nesting rooks will now be sitting on eggs. For most of the other birds the lengthening days and increased hours of sunlight are the trigger to pair up and start breeding ...
