Regional Manager's Thoughts

The Royal Oak has a growing reputation for excellent cask ales, well priced quality food and fantastic hospitality. The pub is located in the heart of the community and the trade is very much local, however there is opportunity to gain additional trade from the nearby Lingfield racecourse and people visiting the area and surrounding villages. The Royal Oak would suit either a good starter pub or an experienced publican looking to fully-utilise their experience to maximise income opportunity.

Surrounding Area

The Royal Oak is located just 25 miles south of central London in the semi-rural village of Dormansland.
