The Royal Oak
With its flagstone floors, old oak beams and original fireplaces, The Royal Oak in Mersham, near Ashford, is a characterful and atmospheric spot to enjoy classic food and drink.
A pub of real history and heritage with the oldest part of the building dates back as far as 1592 – when it served as a game keeper’s lodge on the Hatch estate.
Now owned by the Shepherd Neame brewery, it’s a place to hunt out award-winning real ales and tasty, traditional pub food.
You can enjoy your food and drinks in the cosy bar and restaurant, or in the spacious beer garden.
