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.

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.
