Welcome to The Royal Oak in Paley Street, near Maidenhead
Behind the smart black and white frontage lies a warm and stylish 17th century pub. Once inside the beamed ceilings, wooden floors and friendly welcome soon confirm you’re in the right place.
The Royal Oak is a Michelin star pub serving great British food cooked to perfection. Our extensive wine list boasts some impressive titles and offers something to suit all palates and purses – and rest assured; we haven’t forgotten how to pull a good pint!
For those of you that follow Masterchef, the professionals, we are delighted to count amongst our talented team the 2017 Champion, Craig Johnston.
Our menu can be described simply as ‘British food cooked to perfection’. We select the best seasonal produce, sourced locally whenever possible but we’re not afraid to go further afield to assure the quality. Our food is designed not to be pretentious, but rather to embrace the flavours of the produce and not disguise them with unfamiliar ingredients and complicated cooking methods. The result – deliciously tasty food; we defy you not to scrape the plate.
In 2008 the team gained a Bib Gourmand. Going from strength to strength in 2010 The Royal Oak attained the acclaimed Michelin star. Today The Royal Oak holds a Michelin Star and three AA Rosettes.
The interior of The Royal Oak is elegant, stylish and nostalgic – in keeping with her antiquity. In 2012 the pub was extended, doubling the size of the restaurant, which now seats 80. Horticultural Expert, Richard Vines, designed the modern garden, which features large planters, white pebbles and a contemporary waterfall. An eclectic mix of beautiful art adorns the walls and adds to the charm and magnetism of the pub.
