How interesting that the pie picture has come up! First time here - a friendly pub with lots of fairy lights, an extensive menu, fireside chairs and welcoming staff but I chose badly. Steak and ale pie is a favourite but at £13.99 it was...More

We stopped here on the way home from Beaulieu and the food is very good English pub food, the fish and cheaps where of whale proportions and the pizzas are great. 7 of us were catered for with no complaints.

Have had occasion to visit the Pub a couple of times recently. The food is good but overpriced. The price of drinks is amazingly high £2.50 for a childs fruit shoot. Could have passed this by without a comment. However the bar staff treated us...More

The Royal Oak is a family run historic pub set in the New Forest. It offers an excellent range of real ales and ciders, as well as lovely homemade food and desserts. The pub is near to local attractions such as Beaulieu motor museum, Lepe beach and Exbury gardens. Great for family, the beer garden and childrens play area offers a great resting point for days out.
