Thank you for taking the time to visit our website, which is currently under construction. At this time, we wish to use this page to keep you updated as to our present situation, the information may change frequently so please keep checking if you are thinking about coming to the village.
We are a small, family run country pub in the middle of the New Forest, it is a remote, rural location and as a family we all have our own families, we employee people with their own families and use small suppliers with their own employees and families. Like many other businesses throughout the country, if we shut our doors today, it would be disastrous for those supported directly from the pub. With mental health being as paramount as physical health, we can understand people wishing to visit the Forest and immerse themselves in the countryside at this difficult and confusing time. It is our intention to stay open for as long as is practicable. Nonetheless how we work within those parameters may change daily. For now, we will open the Pub from 10am until 8.00pm. This will allow those who visit Fritham for whatever reason, to have access to our facilities and be able to have lunch or a drink. We have ample outdoor space and will be increasing our covered outdoor space this week. In addition to the pub, we will have our outdoor servery operational as soon as possible for the service of hot and cold drinks and snacks. We are happy to serve carry outs of Beer and take away of our lunchtime menu.
Our arranged events such as Thursday Night Supper’s will be postponed until further notice. We are working with the Pop-up farm shop to open more frequently, stocking the freezer with more has a wonderful milk supplier and can get eggs, bread etc. for those who need it. If you have a friend or relative in the village that you are concerned about, because they are feeling isolated or unable to get supplies of anything, please do contact us and we will try and help in any way we can. We can deliver to them if necessary. We will take all the required precautions to protect the health, safety and well-being of our staff and customers, over and above our stringent cleaning procedures, we ask is that everyone adheres to the safety advice issued by the Government, with regards to staying at home if you have a fever or persistent cough, that you wash your hands frequently, for a minimum of 20 seconds, and avoid close contact with other people.
We are all in this together, as a business we are a tiny cog in this great big wheel, but for us the Royal Oak is our world. If we can support the community in this time as much as you support us then we will always strive to do so. There is much uncertainty every single day, so we thank you all for your encouragement, we will come though this, together.
OPEN 10am – 7.30pm
