About The Royal Oak
The Royal Oak in Orpington is a country pub & restaurant oozing rural charm and rustic character. Our picturesque surroundings provide the perfect backdrop for savouring the hearty, seasonal pub-food on our menu, and the carefully nurtured cask ales and fine wines gracing our bar.

A little pub history
Our location in Orpington makes us an ideal place to stop for a bite to eat... before or after a long journey. When you stop you will enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of our rustic pub restaurant. We were formerly home to the Orpington Folk Club until they moved in 1965, although the Club still provides entertainment in Orpington.
Make a day of it
