"Had the Cotswolds ever seemed so effortlessly cool? Not in my book. After a remarkably tasty dinner in Ramsden, I gasped up a vertiginous staircase to my retro-chic pub bedroom that was filled with delights – from cornflower-blue throws to a gorgeously rustic rug and a complimentary carafe of port. " - some lovely words about The Royal Oak by Harriet O'Brien for The Telegraph.

Our Ukrainian Fundraiser was a great success, the atmosphere was buzzing, the unwavering community spirit was felt throughout the pub. We managed to raise, £2000 to DEC Red Cross Ukrainian Aid, £2000 to British Ukrainian Aid & £1493 to AUGB (Association of Ukrainians in Great Britain) & Hook Norton’s RESIST! Beer went on to raise a further £64.83 which was sent to DEC Red Cross at their request. Thank you to everyone that contributed, to our amazing customers that came along, to our local suppliers for all their incredible donations, to Jack FM & BBC Oxford for getting the word out & to the Royal Oak team for making it happen.

THURSDAY 16THE SEPTEMBER 2021
When we first took over the pub two years ago, one of our dreams was to become the kind of place that Sawday’s would write about in their ’Special Places to Stay’. Last May, we got a visit from an unassuming, very polite couple who asked a huge amount of questions and asked to see all the rooms. As they left, they told us they were Sawday’s inspectors… This week, were over the moon to see them feature The Royal Oak and to read their wonderful write up!
