Muddy Stilettos Award Win!

We're over the moon to announce that we are the 'Best Destination Pub' winners in this year's Muddy Stilettos Awards!

After the ups and downs of the last few months, this news really could not have been more welcome to myself and all the team, and we thank everyone who took the time to vote for us from the bottom of our hearts.

Our team are the friendliest around ... by a country mile ... and we are so, so proud of our fab and ever-changing menu that's brimming with seasonal, local treats. It's great to see that our passion for providing great food and a friendly, warm service is shared by all of you as well. Our aim has and always will be to deliver a pub that has heart and is loved by locals and visitors to the area alike. Winning this award really spurs us on to continue to be the best we can, and we are grinning from ear to ear... albeit behind our masks!

With that in mind, we also wanted to assure you that we're continuing to take your safety seriously as The Royal Oak following the latest government's lifting of restrictions. We want you to feel relaxed about visiting us, we want you to feel safe and we definitely want you to have a very good time. If you'd like to read more about how we're continuing to do this, then you are very welcome to read the overview by clicking ...HERE.

We hope to see you very soon... just hit the online booking link to reserve your table, or call us on 01628 48 86 11

From the banks of the Thames take the short trip up the winding hill to Bovingdon Green and the warm, wooden heart of award-winning The Royal Oak.

Oak by name and oaken by nature - but not hard or austere: not a bit of it.

Bare floorboards and ancient timbers ooze bonhomie, it feels like someone's home - it might as well be yours for the time you are there. Like old friends visiting for dinner, the welcome is easy and relaxed. It's journey's end.

Inside, The Oak's organic interior reveals the nooks and crannies where intimacy is assured and larger tables ar left to revel in the limelight. You'll find a snug with wood burning stove, a rosy red dining room and glowing dark floorboards. Rich fabrics and heritage colours create a warm background.

Beyond the panelled bar the gardens stretch back, and back  - perfect for lazy summer afternoons watching the Red Kites soar overhead. Step through the gap in the fence and there’s even a Teepee tucked behind, primed and ready for your exclusive event. With glass in hand and a menu to savour it’s a world away from the hustle and bustle of Marlow's riverside.

Book for dinner or bag a table on the off chance, it’s your choice. Rarely does anyone leave hungry or thirsty. Up here, in The Oak's leafy embrace, life is more measured and reflective, relax - you have arrived.

To get a little feel for our wonderful part of the world, our little chunk of paradise, then why not take a look at this video filmed by our friends at Taste the Chilterns...
