The Royal Oak is a Michelin starred pub in Warwickshire near Stratford Upon Avon on the edge of the Cotswolds offering real ales, craft beer and seasonal food made from wild ingredients.
Our food offering is what we like to call ‘proper country food’, wild meats and foraged ingredients from our home area. The same ethos we’ve always had. Our aim is simple. We want to tell the story of our community, the producers themselves and how we’ve utilised their ingredients.
Sometimes a dish will be on the menu for a six week period, fully celebrating the early or late season. Conversely a dish may be fleeting, a week, a service or even just for a single table of regulars – a micro-seasonal snapshot, which gets us thinking and talking with our local community of producers about next years planting or hunting, allowing us to dream about revisiting an idea and developing it further the following year.
