Having spent a very enjoyable morning at nearby Exbury Gardens, we came here for lunch. Having been here numerous times previously, we'd always found it a bit hit or miss - with more misses than hits! We needn't have worried. The Royal Oak has changed...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.
