The back room at the Royal Oak is available to hire 7 days a week.

The room is perfect for parties between 30-80 people with changes being made to the seating arrangements to accommodate larger numbers. We have had many parties invite 100+ guests accepting that many will be happy to spill out into the shared garden area which is covered and has heat lamps for cooler nights.


Sunday to Thursday the room can be hired for the whole evening until midnight.

Unfortunately we cannot privately hire the back room of The Oak for the entirety of Friday or Saturday nights for the whole night, due to the busyness of the garden which requires the use of the back bar. We can offer the room to private parties anytime from 12noon to 9pm but from 9pm onwards unfortunately we do have to make the room available to the public. This does not mean your guests have to vacate the room at this time, but it does mean that other customers are able to come into the room and order at the bar or sit at any free tables.


We have a state of the art sound system which can provide top quality sound for a playlist that you have built on Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer, etc.

The big screen TV can also be used simultaneously with the sound system, you can play your choice of music and stream a slide show of your favourite pictures to really personalise the room for your event.

The function room also boast a fully equipped bar with friendly staff to ensure your guests are served quickly and easily.

Our room hire charge is dependent on your function date, expected number of guests, and whether you will be ordering buffet food or not.

For more information on pricing and our availability please email and we will contact you shortly.



Pulled pork, pulled chicken, homemade batches (at least 1.5x batch per person)

Homemade sauces, slaws & pickles

Southern fried potatoes

Please note that all dietary requirements can be met with prior warning.

Vegan, vegetarian & gluten free options available on request.

In the light of continued self-isolation and with the expectation that the number of your guests able to attend functions may reduce with little notice, we are unable to offer our usual range of buffets at the moment.

We are continuing to offer a 'one size fits all' Pulled Batch buffet that has continually proved popular in the past. This buffet gives us the greatest flexibility to be available to you even if multiple members of our kitchen staff need to self isolate, it also gives you more flexibility should your numbers need to reduce last minute.



Pulled roast turkey batches with pan gravy, stuffing, cranberry sauce, pigs in blankets and mini roast spuds.

Gluten free / Vegetarian / Vegan options available upon request.

Please inform us of any dietary requirements in advance.

Our back room is perfect for your end of year party or social, with it's own private bar, sound system for music and television for slideshows.

For December bookings Sunday - Thursday there is a minimum of 30 guests plus catering, and for bookings Fridays & Saturdays there is a minimum of 50 guests plus catering.

Due to the level of custom during Friday and Saturday nights the room can only remain private until 9pm. At this point we will have settled any bar tabs and finish serving food so that the room can be made un-private. This does not mean your guests have to vacate the room, but other customers at The Royal Oak will be allowed into the room to use the bar facilities or any free tables - however we usually find that larger parties fill the room sufficiently to not be affected by other guests at the pub.

Room hire charge is dependent on the date, times & number of guests, we also ask for a £100 deposit to secure the booking and cover in case the numbers are lower than our minimum requirements.

If you have any further questions or would like to enquire for booking availability then please email with your preferred dates and we will contact you shortly.
