Review on The Royal Oak

Scooping The Good Pub Guide 'County Dining Pub of the Year' 2014 award, the fourth year in a row, The Royal Oak near Marlow is out of the same multi-award winning Home Counties' stable as The Alford Arms; this whitewashed village hostelry now follows the same flexible gastro pub path as its relative.

Inside, it has all the familiar Country Living trappings – a snug with a wood-burning stove, dark polished floorboards, rich fabrics – and there's a sprawling garden outside complete with a pétanque 'piste' and a sunny terrace.

The menu divides up into 'small plates' and 'main meals'. On the one hand you can expect vodka-cured salmon with beetroot marmalade and a horseradish scone, sweet potato and coriander koftas, and smoked salmon fishcake with blackened lime mayonnaise; on the other, grilled calf's liver with truffled dauphinoise potatoes and red wine glaze, slow-roast belly pork on sticky braised red cabbage with port gravy, and baked cod with candied red onion and minestrone broth. Finish off with treacle and apple tart or poached pear with pistachio crumble.

To drink there are real ales from the local Rebellion Brewery in Marlow, plus a short, sharp wine list with everything available by the glass.

Congratulations to the Salisbury group for also picking up the prestigious Pub Group of the Year in the Good Pub Guide 2014.
