Sunday Roasts are a speciality, with a choice of two different meats as well as a vegetarian option, all served with homemade Yorkshire puddings, crispy roast potatoes and fresh vegetables. Throughout the week a two course lighter lunch menu is also available as well as a dedicated children's menu.

Visitors are treated to an extensive choice of draught ales, lagers and ciders, as well as superb selection or world wines.

Located in the beautiful Sussex countryside, with an abundance of walks and bike trails, The Royal Oak makes a great pit-stop for walkers, cyclists and dog-walkers who in the winter months are welcome to warm themselves by the cosy log fire. 

In the summer months the large garden is the perfect place to enjoy a meal or a quiet drink, and the Sunday evening barbecue is always very popular.

The Royal Oak offers private dining for up to 100 people for that special occasion, while The Oak Room is available for hire for smaller, more intimate events.

Local Food Sussex says

This traditional, friendly pub really makes the ideal pit-stop when visiting The Goodwood Festival of Speed and The Goodwood Revival. Or make it a lunch stop if you are planning a walk or cycle along the stunning South Downs National Park. Brunch, lunch or dinner, the tempting menus reflect the great use of local, in season produce with everything being homemade and freshly prepared.
