16/09 - Sadly you might have heard the news of a fire at Royal Oak on the 15th September 2019.
Breaking News - 15th September: TUMBLE DRYER FIRE CLOSES ROYAL OAK... we will be back!
Yes, the rumours are true. A fire ravaged the top floor of our beautiful pub in the evening of Sunday 15th September whilst we were mid-dinner service. Our amazing team and wonderful customers quickly left the building allowing the superb men and women from Bucks Fire & Rescue to quickly get the fire under control. We cannot praise all three groups enough.
Now whilst the fire might have been dampened one thing is for sure, that our enthusiasm for ensuring The 'Oak is one of the loveliest places to eat and drink in Marlow has only gathered pace! In fact we were just about to announce that, under the wonderful stewardship of Laura, we have won Bucks County Dining Pub of the Year - and they say life can be cruel!
So what's our plans? Well if you have a booking with us we will be calling you this week and talking you through the options based on when your booking is and what the likelihood of us being open will be.
Please follow us on Facebook or Twitter to keep up to date with our news. But for now all that we are left to say is thank you to the hundreds of messages and calls we have had from friends, customers and suppliers asking if we are ok and seeing if there is anything they can do to help. It has meant so much to us. It really has.
With warmest wishes,
David, Becky & Laura x
