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.
