Great find. The food was good quality and service was great. Kids meals were freshly made.
We held a private reunion in the pub with karaoke later. The staff were great and the whole event a tremendous success; Good pub food. Great service. Will definitely go again.
First time I’ve had dinner here and I had a great evening! It was a quiet evening in terms of customers, service was great and food was delicious. Will definitely be returning!
Four of us went for Sunday lunch. We all liked our roast dinners and the quantity was more than adequate. The puddings were good but not quite to the standard of the main course. Service was excellent and extra gravy was offered without having to ask. A pleasant ambience with a nice buzz without being too loud. Would recommend the Oaks and will visit again.
8 of us had lunch for my mothers 81st birthday. Starters were lovely and some of the mains, however, the beef was rather tough for the elderly at the table. Free coffees were given to those who ordered beef. The pub was busy and we did go later in the afternoon, so it could have been that the beef was sitting around for a long time. All in all, we had a nice time.
Lovely evening at The Oaks. Great choices on the menu. The food we ordered was fantastic- and there was a 2 for 1 meal deal on a Monday night which made it even better value. The desserts were delicious. Service was prompt and friendly. Nice atmosphere. Lovely staff. Will definitely recommend and go back soon!
We found the quality of the food on offer to be below standard. The Sunday roast (chicken) was somewhat meagre in size, the roast potatoes were poor and the Yorkshire pudding tough. The vegetables just about passed muster, although there was not enough of them.
The pub and restaurant was busy and there were not enough serving staff, so service was slow. We waited so long to order our dessert that in the end we didn’t bother.
Overall a very disappointing experience and not up to its Trip Advisor ratings.
Lovely food and good service. Staff were very helpful and efficient. Lovely atmosphere.
Very good food, attentive staff, reasonable prices, and good location. A central meeting point for friends coming from neighbouring counties - we would definitely come again.
Lovely pub for a nice birthday Sunday lunch, good value for money was less that £20 for a three course meal and plenty of choice and good selection. Nice food and a good atmosphere. The staff are always polite and nice. Was great service too. Lovely open fire burning which made it nice and cosy in Winter. Nice seating area outside which has recently been done up for sitting out in the summer.
Took my parents & other half here for dinner last Thursday looking for a nice pub meal & this totally hit the spot. Meat was fresh from the butchers & dad said the steak was very good, high praise from him! Haddock special & fish n chips both got the thumbs up & my steak & stilton pie was one of the nicest pies I've had. Homemade deserts were great too. We were told microwave has no place in their kitchen, which was evident from the food! If you're want a quality, good value pub meal then hard to fault, every plate went back totally empty, highly recommend. Service too was superb!
Nice friendly pub atmosphere close to M25 junction 17
The staff were very polite and helpful. The actual
Pub looked as though it could do with sprucing up. The food was disappointing - the roast dinner was quite poor. The meat was a little tough and the Yorkshire pudding hard. Not enough to complain about but unfortunately sufficient to prevent a return visit
This was one of the poorest meals I have had out in a long while matched with bad service would never go back
Really good and tasty no-nonsense Sunday lunch. Special mention for great roasties. Service was nice and there was a good beer, wine and gin selection.
I use The Oaks frequently due to food ambience and service. A nice friendly pub and also dog friendly. The coy carp is my local but I would rather use the oaks.
Good value Sunday lunch very enjoyable
Had a very nice, good value lunch from the lunch menu. Food was very nice.
Visited for Sunday lunch - good selection, great Sunday Roasts and fantastic value 2 or 3 course menu. Lovely friendly staff and efficient service. Great cosy family friendly pub - look forward to visiting again soon!
Booking was remote on line and carried out efficiently .
When I approached the bar the staff knew where we should sit .
They took a lead from us throughout.
There was no rush and the Oaks was just what we wanted .
we will be back in August.
Lovely food. Lovely service. Good find. Will definitely return and recommend to others.
Lovely steak meal cooked to perfection. Was a little annoyed when my choice of starter was not available but had chicken wings which were delicious. Quite pricey but don't mind paying for well cooked and presented food. Could do with a bit more variety on menus but overall very happy and the atmosphere is great as was the service.
Lovely staff, lovely food, lovely decor. The only thing that let it down was having football blearing out in one ear and music in the other whilst trying to have Dinner with my partner. Have one on or the other, but definitely not football on a Saturday evening!
Good food ,atmosphere & decors. Promotional pie deal with bottle of wine is good & fish and chips freshly cooked.
Super venue for a pre-Christmas family meet up. Everyone enjoyed their meals, we had laughs, a roaring fire and friendly staff. Free parking and the kids could play (just need more kids equipment for better days outside).
certainly will come again as we were made to feel very welcome.
Had a lovely Sunday lunch for four people including a four year old. Food excellent as was the service. Nice atmosphere. Very welcoming. Highly recommend.
The restuarant was cosy and the staff were very helpful. They had run shirt of one item and as it was my wedding anniversary they gave us a free dessert platter, which was delicious .
friendly helpful staff, nice atmosphere, nice food, good value
Standard pub food in a nice setting
We thought we would try the Oaks following the reviews and we were really glad we did. The service was just right and the food excellent and served piping hot. I had the lamb which was perfectly cooked pink in the middle and very tender and tasty.
Gone down hill markedly since change of management. Disinterested staff, poorer quality meat, over cooked. Warm Sunday lunchtime, half empty whereas before it would have been full. Sad.
Went to the Oaks for Sunday Lunch with my Husband. We booked a table online and the table was ready for us when we arrived. We were served drinks fairly quickly but it took awhile for our waiter to come back and take our food order. We ordered 2 roast dinners which were lovely. Meat was cooked perfectly and the portions were very generous. One of the best roasts I've had. We will definately return and would thoroughly recommend.
Enjoyed a relaxed son's birthday meal with the family, friendly, great food and good ale. Will certainly visit again.
We went to celebrate a birthday and enjoyed a quiet meal as it was mid week. the food was served promptly and was hot on arrival at the table. The staff were friendly and the restaurant was fresh and clean. there was a varied menu, suitable for everyone. We would return to The Oaks in the future as we had an enjoyable evening.
The food wasn't too bad, we went for roast dinner and the meat was lovely. However we were slightly disappointed by the veg which had clearly been cooked and left for a long while.
The pub was a lovely building and it could potentially be great however the service was terrible both at the bar and at the table. We won't be returning as there are better alternatives in the area.
Great food, but very loud due to band, moved onto another local pub after food
Food great, service a touch slow but understandable given how busy it was.
Had not prepared a table for our arrival. It was busy but we were left standing at the bar for ages. Lack of staff direction. Service slow but Sunday lunch was nice and tasty. A busy pub with a simple menu and good quality food
A lovely pub with a great family feel! We will definitely be going back 😊
My friend and I had a lovely Sunday lunch at The Oaks. Really good sized portions and very well cooked and presented. Our waitress was perfect - attentive without being intrusive - and our drinks and different courses were brought to us at exactly the right time. We wanted to take our time with our meal (it was Sunday lunch after all) and no-one tried to hurry us. We will definitely return and try the a la carte menu which looks very good too.
