It’s very easy to shout about yourself from the rooftops, but it's not our kind of thing. Fortunately, there are plenty of people who are happy to do it for us.... so a big thanks to all our supporters. To see what they say, just click on the book covers to read the full review.

We're delighted to have won the 'Best Destination Pub' category of the Muddy Stilettos Awards 2021. Thank you to everyone who took the time to vote for us.

We were made up to have been awarded the Buckinghamshire Dining Pub of the Year 2020 for the sixth time from THE GOOD PUB GUIDE, which was published just 9 days before our devastating fire on 15/09/19! Such a shame we didn't get to bask in the sun on this one, but rest assured we have come back better than ever!

Well blow us down! Following on from our 2015 award - (Sister pub The Alford Arms' won in 2014), didn't we just go and scoop Gold Medals in the national Free From Eating Out Award again in 2016 and 2017!.....

“Oh yes please! There is a world of difference between catering for an allergy with something like a salad, or roast with no gravy, and coming up with a delicious sounding dish that meets multiple needs without compromise on flavour. The Royal Oak hits the nail on the head."

2017 was a cracking year for us, when we scooped both the Beautiful South Tourism Pub of the Year award for the second year running and also Les Routiers Pub of the Year.


Also, back in July 2017 we were delighted to be awarded the TripAdvisor Hall of Fame Certificate for five years of consistently excellent ratings from you - our lovely customers! THANK YOU.

Royal Oak Marlow Award Winning Pub

You will be made just as welcome by the helpful staff if it's just a pint and a chat that you want.


Order a local ale or one of 22 wines by the glass and the big garden and terrace are relaxing in summer.

Royal Oak Marlow Award Winning Pub

Regulars gathered round a  crossword with a pint of Rebellion from Marlow, or Tutts Clump cider from West Berkshire.


A popular pub-cum-restaurant, tipped for food that’s “always reliable” – others prefer to use the word ‘guaranteed’!”.
