How the Royal Oak will run from Saturday
Pubs and Restaurants are now allowed to open from 4th July although there some substantial changes to how we run. Because of new safety and security regulations put into place it will be different to anything we have done before. Because of this it may take some time to get back into the swing of things for both staff and customers but as time passes and routines evolve it will become easier and eventually will become normal. However, until then, the following new guidelines must be complied by:
The number of tables that we will be able to offer will be limited due to safe and responsible social distancing. With safety in mind we have decided to initially open outside only (weather dependant) In order to give everyone a chance to get out early on we will be taking bookings for tables on a 2-hour time slot. Booking will not be a necessity however it is the best way of guaranteeing a table.
Following new guidelines, there will be a maximum of 6 people to a table. Tables cannot be moved together.
Responsible social distancing
To follow government guidelines, we will only be serving drinks to people on a table or through the service hatch where a distanced queue will be outlined. If you do not have a seat at a table, you will not be able to buy drinks to consume on the premises.
Please respect the current rules of social distancing. It is for the safety of you as a community and of our staff and volunteer staff.
Preventative and security measures
As no access will be allowed to the bar in the early days, toilet access will be limited to one at a time and reversible reserved signs on the back door will be used. Queueing systems will be clearly signposted.
Hand sanitizing stations will be set up around the premises and clearly signposted.
Staff will have temperature checks on arrival and will be issued with the suitable PPI to ensure the safety of us and our customers.
It goes without saying that if you or any member of your family is showing symptoms then you must, for the safety of the community, stay away from the pub for a minimum of two weeks.
The pub is set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty – near Chartwell just south of Westerham. Whether you are walking, cycling, on a family outing or working away from the office there is something for you at The Royal Oak.
When we are closed please use our sister pub, The Carpenters Arms, Limpsfield Chart, which is open all day and only 5 minutes away – call 01883 722209
We will have some gluten-free options, so please ask when you are choosing your meal.

Some historical notes about the pub:
Some historical notes: “At one time a beer and cider house, the buildings of the Royal Oak are thought to be at least 500 years old. The Inn had a 35-foot well in the public bar which was visible through a glass panel. In the 1950s this well, which was used by pilgrims on their way to Thomas a Becket’s tomb at Canterbury, was recorded as a possible safe supply of drinking water in the event of atomic warfare.” The philanthropist and co-founder of the National Trust, Octavia Hill, lived nearby in Larksfield from 1884. On her death in 1912, despite being offered a burial in Westminster Abbey, Octavia Hill had previously chosen to be buried in the graveyard of Holy Trinity Church in Crockham Hill. Her grave is to be seen with those of her sisters to the right of the path to the south porch. There is also a recumbent marble effigy of Octavia Hill beside the altar in the church.
