The Wadworth 6X here is an amazing 3.40 per pint. Back home in the Midlands, we rarely pay more than 2.05 a pint for real ale. In fact, there were protests when our local brew, Marston's EPA, went up from 1.95 to 2.05 a pint at my local (The White Horse in Norton, Stourbridge). They vowed not to increase the price afterwards and it has remained at that price for literally ages since. (19/07/2012 at the time of this writing). I think Wadworth's directors must be living the good life in The Maldives or on Barbados if they have to charge such wicked prices. Get a grip, I say or, real ale fans, move north and show 'em the error of their ways. 3.40 a pint - I ask you. Tell 'em where they can stick it. These are telephone directory prices! Wadworth, for Pete's Sake, get a grip!

We visited here on the way home from Newbury Races on our local Club outing. Our organiser looked at the Royal Oak earlier in the year as a stop-off point for a meal for what ended up as a 52 seat coach load. For the faint-hearted coach driver, not somewhere to drive to without exploring the route first - VERY narrow lanes and only just enough space to turn round at the car park entrance.

Pub-wise, Wadworth's 6X straight from the barrel and one guest beer "Down Under". Being straight from the barrel, beer was excellent, if a bit pricey at 3.30. Food-wise, all were more than happy with the three-course meals we had pre-ordered.

We will be returning next year, if not before!

wow what can i say.... i love this pub! I stayed in the royal oak after a long canal cycle with a friend, and i have to stay the comfortable B+B was a very welcome sight. we were shown to our rooms after we were offered the use of their barn to lock our bikes away (this, im sure wasn't needed as its such a quiet location) but it was nice and we took up the offer.
The rooms were warm, comfortable and clean, what more do you need?!
We cleaned up and went to dinner, wow what a selection and the food was freshly cooked and apparently locally brought, the staff were friendly and very helpful. We even ventured into the 'bar area' after dinner and got chatting to the joyful locals!
After a good nights sleep the english breakfast certainly set us up for another long days cycling. Although we were almost sad to leave!

I spent a week lodging in this pub and can honestly say that the rooms were clean and comfortble, the atmosphere was warm and friendly and the food was delicious. This is a great pub for locals and visitors alike, well worth fnding!

beautiful area, well kept garden and drinking patio. one of the largest selections of spirits i have seen. a great pub if you are walking along the canal. and a menu that may be even too large. not all to my taste but nevertheless found about five choices i would have liked. i wouldnt normally risk anything too complicated in a pub this far from a hospital but i had calves liver that was well cooked and presented, and a good portion. worth the trip out to the sticks. parking was a bit limited but it was sunday and a walk was by no means unpleasant.
