The Royal Oak public house is ideally situated in the centre of the historic town of Corsham in Wiltshire. The building took its name in 1899, Royal Oak being the name given to the oak tree within which King Charles II of England hid to escape the Roundheads following the Battle of Worcester in 1651.
There are two spacious bar areas with traditional wooden floors and wood burning stoves offer an especially warm welcome on cold winters’ days. Both bars have recently been totally refurbished to make pleasant spaces to spend time in, while still retaining the character and heritage of the building. The pub also currently offers delightful bed and breakfast accommodation. The Royal Oak has a wide range of Wadsworth real ales, guest ales, lager and ciders. The building also has a large car park for patrons’ use.
Local attractions include Bath, Stonehenge, Bowood Country House and of course the beautiful Corsham Court. We are in the Cotswolds, which features many lovely villages and other tourist attractions. Corsham was recently used for the filming of Poldark.
