Would DEFINITELY recommend it

Tried a takeaway from the Royal Oak tonight and would DEFINITELY recommend it – food on time, delicious and piping hot! Thank you!

It made my birthday

Many thanks for providing a lovely meal for collection. It made my birthday a whole lot brighter during the lock down.

Thank You

Thank you Sebastian and Will for the most delicious pies, superb service as always. Love you guys for being so supportive. xx

Thank You

My parents really enjoyed their meal from you on Friday night… such a great idea as neither of them can get anywhere at the minute, so thank you!

Wonderful Delivery

Had a wonderful delivery last night from Sebastians Kitchen at The Royal Oak with dinner for 4 – for a dinner party – in TWO locations – via Zoom! Superb food and drink and lots of fun.  Thanks to Sebastian and the team at The Royal Oak! Highly recommended!

Another Fantastic Meal

Another fantastic meal, thank you Will and Sebastian …… and the Birthday treat was so thoughtful and generous.

* Delivery if you live within 3 miles of us. Min order for delivery £20.

A warm and friendly welcome awaits you at The Royal Oak

A warm welcome, delicious food, locally sourced seasonal produce, cask ales, an array of fine wines and a beautiful beer garden awaits you at The Royal Oak.

Once a Royal Hunting Lodge, the Royal Oak is a delightful 17th Century Inn, near the former market town of Fordingbridge, nestled in the heart of the New Forest National Park. The Royal Oak sits in the picturesque village of North Gorley, amongst its grazing donkeys and ponies, opposite the village duck pond.

It is renowned by locals and visitors alike, for serving high-quality pub food with a modern twist, real ales, and warm hospitality. The Royal Oak is very family and dog-friendly and boasts many outstanding facilities, such as a beautiful beer garden.
