After a very long day at the Malvern Flower show we were in search of a nice, comforting meal. We didn't know the area and drove straight past the Oak Inn. As it looked welcoming we turned around - the best decision of the day. A Friday night, they were pretty full, but the waitress invited us onto a lovely... More

We have driven past this pub/restaurant on lots of occasions and the car park looked empty so we did not venture in, did not realise that there is a large car park at the back. (hence no cars at the front) I know ?. The pub part of the pub was busy on a early Friday evening with a lively... More

We had a quick family lunch before heading off on a walk in the local countryside. Very pleasant and accommodating. The food was very decent and just what we wanted.

When you pull into the front car park you are faced with the frontage of a seemingly small pub. However, this belies a most spacious inside, and in particular a large, roomy dining room. We were nicely welcomed, and seated at a large round table, perfect for the extended family, including the two grand children. An excellent menu, good food,... More

Seven of us had a business meeting and dinner at the Oak. The food was very tasty and the service excellent; moreover, the staff found us a quiet corner so we could chat amongst ourselves.

Although the restaurant was busy non stop, one sitting after another, they were still able to produce an excellent family lunch for six of us. Starters were super, especially liver pate also black pudding spring roll. Roast were perfectly cooked and good size portions. The salmon was amazing! Just a shame the cheesecake didn't live up to expectations. A shame... More

It was a set menu for Mother's Day but plenty of choice for everyone and we had a lovely 3 course meal. The staff were friendly and attentive despite being rushed off their feet as it was extremely busy. The pub doesn't look much from outside, but it's decorated nicely inside and we'd definitely return if in the area again.

We visit this small, traditional pub every couple of months and are never disappointed with the menu. On our latest visit this week we had prawns in chilli oil, the soup of the day and the most wonderful duck breast, cooked to perfection. All this washed down with a fine pint of Wye Valley HPA, and all served by the... More
