Details

Helen Browning's Royal Oak is a dining pub with rooms,situated in the middle of their own organic farm in the village of Bishopstone, on the edge of the Wiltshire Downs.

Their menu changes most days and always with the seasons. Depending on the time of year they serve their own lamb and beef and always their own pork, and bacon, sausages and eggs. The milk comes via Berkeley Farm five miles away. Veg is direct from their friends at Westmill Organics a few miles down the road. They also like Laverstoke Park for its buffalo ice cream and Wing Fish at St Mawes for their careful fish supplies. Neighbours for their watercress, rhubarb, courgettes, by the wheelbarrow load, sometimes.

The bar always has four superb changing real ales from Arkell’s, organic soft drinks and cordials from Belvoir, Big Tom and others; organic wines from Vintage Roots plus their glorious Fleury champagne; and a superb range of gins and whiskies – at least a dozen to choose from.

The 12 luxurious rooms are a world away from the crowd, with their own doors off a sunny, shared courtyard. Each unique room is named and themed after a field on the farm here at Eastbrook, a perfect place to unwind in the beautiful Wiltshire countryside. Sleep deeply in crisp cotton bedding. A hearty breakfast to set you up for your day, whatever it holds, and high speed WiFi to keep you connected. Two of the rooms are dog friendly – Kate’s Folly and Barn Field.

Circular walks to The Ridgeway National Trail that runs across the 1,400 acre organic farm start from the front door. The farm boundaries to the south give access to thousands more acres of open land, criss-crossed with paths and bridleways, and the glories of pre-historic Wiltshire and Oxfordshire lie all around them. At the right time of year there’s a proper fire to come back to and always newspapers, magazines, books to borrow. Dogs and muddy boots welcome.
