I still cannot believe my good fortune at having co-discovered the Royal Oak & Castle Inn.
My wife and I almost stumbled upon this cracking pub in June 2017.

My husband and I used to do this years ago. I'd forgotten how much I enjoyed it.
We stopped for over 20 years to have a bunch of kids. Well, now I'm back !

(Bar & Cellar Management)

Since starting at the Royal Oak & Castle Inn, I have really developed a passion for my area of the pub.
I go to great lengths to ensure the Real Ales and Cask Beers are always in Tip Top Condition.


I joined the Royal Oak & Castle October 2017 as full time chef.
It's excellent to be part of the growing team.
