The Royal Oak
This thriving grand old town centre pub has finally given Evesham the great place to eat and drink that it deserves!
Chef Alistair Barlow who runs the Royal Oak uses his experience of cooking in good dining pubs to oversee a diverse menu that offers honest, fresh food at a reasonable price. Alistair was named Craft Guild of Chefs Pub Restaurant Chef of the Year 2010 so knows what he’s doing, cooking great steaks, fantastic burgers, seasonal fish and pub classics using top quality ingredients from local suppliers.
The Royal Oak also serves real ales, for which it has won a Cask Marque award, and a notable selection of gins.
Front of house, a well-drilled and friendly team ensure everything runs smoothly and the aim is for every guest to leave happy.
If you’re looking for somewhere to host a dinner party, a celebration or business meeting, there is a private dining room that holds 20 guests, or more for buffets or drinks receptions. Alistair and Stacey are more than happy to discuss bespoke menus for larger parties.
