A really nice setting, staff very very cheery, and provided a really good service, only thing that let it down for me was the Beer, possibly the worst pint of Harvey’s I have ever had, a few others in a group also commented on how bad it was

Took my Mother and wife for a lunchtime meal following a lovely walk along the sea wall and nature reserve just a few miles away on The Level. Food and Service was fantastic.

This is an absolutely superb pub! There is a very varied menu and excellent quality of locally sourced food. Very welcoming and homely atmosphere, always with a log fire in the colder months. We need to protect and support these wonderful pubs, this one is a real gem! Thoroughly recommend visiting. Tony and Jane

Pub was quite busy when we arrived at 7.00, bar staff looked like they didn’t know who to serve first. Got our table and menus, again staff forgot us, although in line of sight. Both us and the next table had to go to the bar to say we ready to order, as it had been a while.The food was very good, partner had the battered cod and I had a burger. Both nice and hot, presented well and tasty.

Sunday roast to really shout about…1st visit to the Royal Oak Pub today at Pett. We always try somewhere different for a Roast Lunch if we are down near Hastings on a Sunday. We booked a table with ease this morning! Then when we arrived at 1.30pm the carpark was almost empty 😳 2 concerning points!!! Well we needed not to worry the staff were delightful and accommodating and the food was tremendous 👌 I had the roasted loin of pork with apricot and apple stuffing him indoors went for Lamb. Both meals came out crowned with Yorkshire puddings you new your mum had made and the gravy had all the meat juices in from the roasting pan… Roast potatoes, roasted with love not fried off, and the meat was thickly sliced from the joint to order. I could go on but I won’t.Hats off to the Chef and kitchen staff for providing what is now the “BEST”Sunday Roast in this neck of the woods…10/10Beer choice excellent and a proper pub with charming pub garden too boot ✴✴✴✴✴(It was the jubilee weekend and ever where out in the sticks was quiet)
