I was in the pub today (26/05/12) and ordered sea bass, caesar salad and breaded chicken with chips for our child from children's menu. I asked for 2 teas and a glass of tap water - I repeated "tap water" quite loudly and several times, but unfortunately didn't pay attention to the total price (42 pounds) and wasn't given a receipt which would help me to see a mistake.
We got our food and drinks but when our daughter tried to drink water from a tall glass she started screaming in pain and we found out it wasn't tap water - it was vodka! The girl who took the order misheard me all the 4 or 5 times and charged me for vodka - thats why we paid so much. And when I explained it to her, being close to tears, she didnt even follow me, didnt say sorry and didnt, obviously, refunded the money we paid for the drink we didnt need. I wont visit this pub ever again and wont recommend it to anyone.

The Kings Oak is in a great location but is trying to be a gastro pub (they even say on their website "the first gasto pub in Essex").
The food is on the lower side of average but the prices are just plain stupid (7.50 for a baguette), and if you wish to pay by card for anything under 20 they will charge you an extra 1.
The service for weddings and functions is also below standard and will be subjected to price increases once you have paid your non refundable deposit.
This is a pub that is best avoided.

The best thing about this pub is the extensive garden, which, if you arrive early is deserted and tranquil.
The inside of the pub is horribly gloomy and badly decorated .As i was out walking the dogs and wearing old camouflage trousers, I felt out of place inside the pub. The staff are straight out of The Only Way is Essex and have nothing to say to you. I opted for the Stella Artois which was very well kept i must say

We ate there twice last year 2010 and were very impressed with the pub the staff and the food, but this year (2011) were extremely dissapointed. The staff seemed rushed off their feet, the food was not nearly as good nor were the choices and the ladies toilets smelt of someone having been sick (sorry) for being graphic. If we hadn't of ordered and were waiitng for food I would of left. It was very off putting.

Such a shame we went there deliberately as we had enjoyed it so much last year. Won't be visiting again sorry Kings Oak.

Not what i expected, the pub has changed somewhat from my previously visits to a bar. Emphasise seems to be on fooddinning. I think the bar caters for more glamerous people. Good location though especially now the council is redeveloping public area outside of the bar. Bring back the pub!
