Welcome back

Welcome to the Royal Oak.

Our beautiful 17th Century pub is situated just outside the town of Midhurst, nestled in the National Park.
The Royal Oak is perfectly placed if you are looking to set off on the miles of footpaths and bridlepaths that lead you to the heart of the South Downs.
We partner with the finest local suppliers of both food and drink to create seasonal, delicious, daily changing menus.
With an abundance of space indoors and a large heated marquee the Royal Oak caters for all dining experiences.
We are following all government guidelines regarding Covid-19, and should you have any questions on this please get in touch
We are so grateful for the support we have received in 2020 during lockdowns and difficult openings, and we can’t wait to welcome you again

what our customers think


"We haven't been to the Royal Oak before but went to the Pit Stop for fathers day- the burgers were absolutely delicious as were the milkshakes! I'm sure we will be back!"


"I just want to say how amazing you have all been throughout lockdown, you have kept my household going with food deliveries and takeouts. Thank you for being a strong organisation of our community and we will be supporting you with your future endeavours."


"We thoroughly enjoyed our roasts last Sunday and can't wait to try some more from the take away menu. Really yummy food and fantastic service, thank you"


"We had a fantastic Sunday Lunch takeout today. Delicious. Will definitely order again. Looking forward to the pub re-opening"


"Used the Pit Stop drive thru this evening and it was brilliant! Drove from Emsworth and it was well worth it! Friendly staff, great food and excellent value for money! Fantastic idea, keep up the good work!"


"We have just had a takeaway meal from The Royal Oak and it was absolutely fantastic. Delivery was on time, the food was really delicious. Thank you very much"

"We had the most awesome food and service tonight thank you"


"The best Sunday roast I have ever had, superb and the waitress was excellent"


"Passed by this place today and decided to stop for lunch.Beautiful day so sat in their well spaced out beer garden. My husband and I had a 2 course menu for £15 which also included a tea or coffee. We both had the fish and chips and have never tasted such amazing beer batter, so light and crispy. For dessert we had the apple tarte tatin which was served with very creamy, vanilla ice cream. Compliments to the chef and very good value for money"


"After hearing the Royal Oak had a new owner and landlady we decided to call in for a pint and try one of their famous burgers and fat chips. We were greeted immediately by friendly staff behind the bar. A young, welcoming and well trained team didn't disappoint us. The local beer is a great pint. Our meal came out circa 10 mins after we ordered. Very generous portions, cooked perfectly with a dressed green salad. During our stay, four of their busy staff engaged and asked us if we needed anything and if we enjoyed our meal. There is plenty of space to distance, the beer, food and service is second to none. Great pub, great value, great staff, attentive manager. We will definitely make this pub a regular in future"
