From the outside it looks like a country pub in a built-up area, so we called in for some lunch.
Inside was smart and clean with the restaurant along the far side of the bar.
I was not too impressed with what was on the bar.
Two hand pumps: Adnams Ghost Ship had ran out, leaving just boring Doom Bar.

Choice of food was okay at prices from average to high.
The ploughmans is served on a wooden board - I prefer a plate.
Burgers are served on a slate board - not sure how hygienic they are.
Chips come in a wire basket, which seem strange.
Guess what happened after I sprinkled them with vinegar?

Staff were just about okay without going that extra mile.
All round a disappointment.

Total disappointment, complete and utter waste of time! since new owners have taken over they have totally killed the pub, they have ripped the heart and soul out of a lovely old pub, in has come blaring spot lights, fake marble bar, over exagerated decor! Landlady extremely surly and very rude which goes hand in hand with the bar staff, the most ignorant staff I have ever been served by, three visits running they had no beer on tap? Had run out and no one could change barrell. Bearing in mind this is the only pub in the area, surely common sense would kick in and realise you charge normal pub prices to get the punters back in? No totally overcharging, she seems to forget this is Ockendon not London. Pub is deserted every night of week, wonder why! Restaurant, what a joke, not one person in there, but then twenty pounds for fishand chips, dont bother going.

The Oak is now very clean and tidy.
The restaurant food is absolutely top notch.
The restaurant service is very good.
Entrance through the bar area could put you off going further though, as some drinkers looked as if they had walked straight in from a building site and the shouting, swearing and school playground behaviour is going to put most people off returning.
