About us

Welcome to The Royal Oak! Our 17th-century pub may be located at the edge of Midhurst, but it’s an easy drive from the town centre where you’ll find us on Oaklands Lane. Our large beer garden boasts spectacular views of the South Downs. We offer British pub grub with a difference – made only with the finest seasonal ingredients from the region and prepared in a variety of traditional cooking styles. Our extensive menu of fish, meat and vegetarian dishes are sure to delight, and so will our wide selection of ales, lagers and ciders from the tap. Make a date with us soon for lunch or dinner! We can’t wait to see you.
