Returning home from a weekend visiting our son in Bristol we decided on a pub lunch.
I chose The Royal Oak at Wineham remembering the wonderful character of the pub when we last visited many years ago.
You step through the door and step back in time.
Stone floors, old wooden tables polished with age
a fire blazing in the inglenook fireplace.
Beer drawn straight off the barrel.
I could not resist catching this image of the landlords dog sitting on a stool by the fire.
Delightful, traditional pub in a very quiet rural location. The Royal Oak is a black and white, timbered, 14th century building with brick floors, low beams and large fireplace. It has been a pub for 200 years and is full of character. There is a collection of corkscrews, and other unusual items, hanging up behind the bar. Beers, Harveys and at least one guest beer
