Enjoy your visit in safety

Ensuring that you thoroughly enjoy your time at The Royal Oak in a safe manner is of utmost importance to us. For the foreseeable future we need to operate differently, with new measures in place, none of which will in any way affect the quality of our delicious food or our attentive service.

We want you to be completely reassured that all required changes have been made to our premises to meet the new Government guidelines and regulations, and the team are fully trained to work safely during this time. We want you to come to The Royal Oak with your friends and families, feeling it’s a safe haven where you can relax, laugh and celebrate life!

Here’s how we’ll be running things:

  • We have a one way system in operation, with entry through the front door and exit through the conservatory.
  • Our seating plan has been relaid out to ensure our tables are placed two metres apart.
  • We have a rigorous, regular cleaning schedule in place, covering all areas at regular intervals throughout the day.
  • All staff are fully trained to work within the new guidelines and regulations. They are handwashing every 30 minutes and we are carrying out regular team temperature checks.
  • We are currently using single-use, disposable menus for every customer.
  • All payment is contactless.
  • Hand sanitiser is available for you to use.
  • Only one person at a time in our lavatories.
  • Please observe social distancing at all times, especially if queuing.

Track & trace

Please note: The government has requested we record contact details of all our customers to help with the ‘track and trace’ scheme. You will be asked for your name and contact number at the point of service which will be securely held for 21 days. After this period if we are not requested to provide your details the information will be securely destroyed.

If you have any questions about our management of The Royal Oak through this time, please don’t hesitate to call us on 01223 870791 or drop us a line by email.

We look forward to welcoming you at The Royal Oak, Barrington and would like to thank you in advance for your support.

our speciality

The age-old art of cooking over charcoal comes to The Royal Oak, thanks to our legendary Josper charcoal oven, installed as part of our extensive kitchen refurbishment. Try our succulent steaks and fish dishes, chargrilled to juicy perfection with all the flavour locked in.

As a freehouse we’re free to choose what we stock in our bar, which means you’re more likely to find a more interesting selection of beers, ales and wines at The Royal Oak. And did we mention we do cocktails too?
