Having scouted the area we thought we'd try the Royal Oak. Very nicely situated and pleasant decor. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. Food was good as was the service. All in all a very nice early evening meal had by all.

I popped in for a Saturday lunch with a friend. The food has normally been ok there in the past. I ordered the 6oz rump steak and chips, my friend ordered the chicken burger. Neither of these options is particularly cheap at £11 & £11.50...More

I don't usually respond to poor reviews as I think we should take it on the chin and learn from criticism so that we do better next time. However your review is unfair. You asked one member of staff whether we could do a vegetarian...More

Bit of a dodgy walk from Midhurst where we were staying along the edge of the main road but worth the effort. Slightly more concerning on the way back given the number of beers we had. Friendly staff and a good selection of food. We...More

Hi Debby, I think you've sent your message to the wrong place. We're a pub in West Sussex that doesn't do accommodation. Thanks, Julian
