Today we eat a very good veggie Wellington roast. The portion size was way too big, so I took a few things back home. Nice service, quick, friendly and efficient.

I visited the Heart of Oak with a friend on a Thursday recently. Steak night. We had a really lovely meal, steak done to perfection, excellent value. Our waitress was ever so helpful and friendly. The wine list was good and decently priced. We are definitely going to go back on a regular basis. I hear the live bands are... More

We visited the heart of oak on a quiet Monday evening in early Jan. My wife and I both had burgers which were delicious and came with some thick cut chips and side salad whilst our son had lasagne which he wolfed down with the garlic bread. Decor is clean and modern and the staff were lovely. Overall I can't... More

A great local pub. Food was excellent pub grub. Great portions and fantastic service. Great roast on a Sunday as well. Really good price. Two meals for £12 on Tuesday. Who can argue with that. Love it.

Had heard good reviews about this Restaurant. We were not disappointed. The food was excellent. My Husband had the Special Pork Dish "Delicious". Traditional Fish and Chips was 10/10. Not an easy mark to achieve in my book. Rebooked for my Birthday.

We enjoyed our Sunday lunch (for eight) so much that 4 of us went back next evening! The menu is varied, the food quality is high and the prices are reasonable. Efficient and friendly service.

Hadn't been here for food in over a year as, on the last couple of occasions, service was very slow. What a marked difference this time!! The waitress was very attentive & welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. She even apologised for our previous long waits although she wasn't employed back then. Also found out that it's got a...

Took advantage of the Thursday night two steaks for £15. Had Gammon and Rump steak and both were excellent. Nice to see that there is an option on the menu to have smaller portion meals. Waitresses are always friendly. Pleasant atmosphere. Lynda
