It is a sign of the times that a village which once boasted four pubs (or more within earlier parish boundaries) is now reduced to one. But what we have lost in quantity we now make up in quality. The Royal Oak was bought by the community in August 2020, has housed the village shop since November, and reopened for drinks when Covid restrictions were partially lifted in April 2021.

The initial reopening had to be restricted to the garden, but from mid-May 2021 we reopened the bar. A lot of love and effort has been poured into the building, inside and out, for which we are deeply grateful to our many volunteers. Come and enjoy a pint or two in our phoenix of a community pub.
