At the foot of the South Downs sits the country pub, The Royal Oak. Relax after a walk, enjoy the barbecue area on a balmy summer day, or experience an inventive take on pub classics showcasing the freshest locally sourced ingredients.
This beautiful country pub is in Poynings, surrounded by a picturesque and spacious garden, complete with splendid views of the downs. The dining area has a rustic feel to it with exposed wooden beams in the ceiling, laid hardwood tables and chairs, and the huge welcoming fireplace, providing comfort like no other.
All the beers are locally sourced, and with a brand-new selection of wines you won’t be disappointed, especially if you try the “chardonnay fizzy wine” which is simply divine.
The menu has a selection of bar nibbles, burgers, and platters, including classic hearty pub favourites like the “The Royal Oak fishcake”, plus a regularly updated specials board. The desserts are too tempting to ignore, with all time staples such as the “sticky toffee pudding” on offer.
The pub often hosts events such as pie making and chilli eating competitions, which the whole village gets involved with, often raising money for local projects and charities.
