About

A whitewashed Georgian gem’ is the best way to describe this sophisticated village pub set in the stunning Sussex countryside. Some 200 years old, the Royal Oak has produced an award-winning service for many years, and the splendour continues. Following a clever restoration by the current owners, oak timbering and exposed brick walls combine with bright colours and wall decorations to give a contemporary twist in all the right places. The timber-clad bar radiates a warm reception – an alluring open fire stands proudly as a symbol of the pub’s roots – and is stocked to the brim with a hefty selection of ales and wines. Upbeat modern cuisine from across the continents is expertly delivered to the chic restaurant by head chef Steve Ferre, while lighter dishes are served in the bar throughout the day.

Accommodation is the pièce de résistance at The Royal Oak: fantastic luxury bedrooms that boast period features offer the ultimate in comfort. Soft comfy beds are dressed with down duvets and Egyptian cotton sheets and the spotless ensuite bathrooms feature L’Occitane toiletries, while latest technology such as wi-fi, DVD and flat-screen TV is not overlooked. An ethos of simple yet quirky charm, make these rooms stand out. Additionally, a self-catering flint cottage is located across the road, allowing larger groups to enjoy The Royal Oak, but still in keeping with the high standards set.

Rooms: 6 sumptuous rooms complete with the latest technology including wi-fi and their own bathrooms with fine complementary toiletries.
