The Royal Oak Pub & Restaurant Feature ~ Opening Times, Menus & Info

Royal Oak Cellar area The Royal Oak Pub & Restaurant is housed in a grade II listed building and offers an historic, atmospheric venue set right in the heart of Winchester's stunning City Centre – just a couple of minutes walk from Winchester Cathedral and the bus station. The interior has been recently refurbished to offer a traditional setting fused with a tasteful twist of modern chic.

The building boasts plenty of royal history – it is believed that King Edward the Confessor (1003–1066) spent significant time there in his early years. Royalist supporters during Oliver Cromwell's rule frequented the property - reflected via 'Royal' attribution after Charles II's restoration to the throne.

The Royal Oak is renowned for its friendly atmosphere, top quality fare and excellent selection of drinks/beverages – including cocktails! This very smart and spacious venue offers differing areas in which to enjoy a drink, meal or function, such as the quaint, warmly furnished, beautifully lit cellar area – perfect for intimate dining or parties (pictured). There is also a pretty, well–protected, heated patio garden with covered seating – a great setting for a refreshing outside drink, delicious meal, or smoke at any time.

Royal Oak Garden Royal Oak Bar area

Royal Oak Bar area The Royal Oak is an ancient English Pub, purported to be the oldest bar in England – records date from 1002! The building as it stands today has existed since 1630. The decor embraces 'Olde Worlde' in terms of gorgeous wooden features, including ancient beams, which invoke an air of times gone by.
