A warm welcome
Trevor and Helen and the team are proud to welcome you to the Royal Oak. Our committed staff take pleasure in ensuring that your time with us is enjoyable, whether it be for that special meal or just a quick drink.


The Royal Oak is the oldest pub in the historic market town of Potton in Bedfordshire, situated in a Grade 2 listed building. Here you’ll find real ales, fine wines and fresh and delicious food, all in a traditional, family-run, English pub like atmosphere. 

The oak beamed bar with a real fire in the colder months provides a friendly and relaxing atmosphere, whilst for those warmer summer days the beer garden offers a pleasant alternative. In the evenings the solid oak dining tables subtly lit create a warm and intimate ambience.


What our visitors say…

Visited the Royal Oak this evening for dinner with a friend and had the mussels with sweet potato fries as I really fancied it and I am so glad I went for them. The mussels in white wine sauce were mouth watering and the sweet potato fries were cooked to perfection. All of the staff were lovely and very helpful and I will gladly say I will be returning to the pub! Kimberly O – TripAdvisor

Just had the best Pub Sunday lunch for a long time. Staff were all very friendly. Would recommend it to anyone. Ron B – Facebook

Took friends to The Royal Oak for lunch midweek. We all ate meals from the pensioner’s menu. The food was excellent and was by no means small portions. The price was suitable for pensioners and very good value. The service came with a smile and didn’t we didn’t have to wait long for all our meals to be served. Definitely worth going.

Chicken mushroom meal with Stilton mashed potatoes was excellent. Beautifully presented and very tasty. Chocolate dessert was lovely. Best pub meal I’ve had in England – visiting from overseas. Jeanette W – Facebook
