Food & Drink
at the Royal Oak
You’ll eat well here. Generous organic food from our farm or our neighbours.
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.
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.
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!
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
Although the weather has felt pretty miserable over the last few weeks it’s been absolutely perfect for mushrooms – there’s been an explosion in the local area and James, our photographer from ProHides, has been out in the rain capturing images. We don’t want you to miss out though so if you’ve got a camera, big or small, why not join him on Sunday 3rd of November for a photowalk to see some of these wonders for yourself.
