Update from TROG                                                                  24th September 2020

Happy Thursday everyone!

As we’re all aware, the Government guidelines have been updated and more restrictions have been put into place as of today. Because of these new updated restrictions where possible it would be helpful for tables to be booked in advance by email or phone on 07973 490960 or 01732 490960.

  • Chairs and tables have been laid out to abide by the one metre safe distance. Please DO NOT move the chairs or try and sit in groups of more than 6 inside OR outside. 
  • When moving around the pub please follow the one-way system shown by the arrows on the floor to reduce contact with people outside of your household or bubble.
  • Please remember to check in on entry or using the QR code on your table.  

Last week was good for the pub with the uptake on the new menu being strong. This weekend we are welcoming a new chef who will be cooking 12-8 Saturday and 12-6 Sunday with Roasts being offered Sunday lunchtime.

Click on the MENU tab to see what’s on offer.

We are limited on numbers with inside seating and, as the weather cools, there will be fewer people eating outside – so, please do call ahead to be sure of a dining slot.

We also have a wide and wonderful range of new gins, wines, bottled beer and ciders in stock!

As always, we are running a collection or local delivery service on all of our bottled beers, wines and draught throughout the week. We also have a range of the Westerham bottled beers available to drink in or take away.

The CHEERS stroll last Friday was attended by 9 people and a dog (in small groups) returning for pre-ordered sandwiches at the pub. The next outing is on Friday 23rd October when the leader will be Vic Roberts.

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.
