THE ROYAL OAK

Corsham Wiltshire

The Royal Oak, Corsham, Wiltshire


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.

The pub also currently offers one delightful bed and breakfast room on the first floor with its ownn ensuite bathroom.  The current landlord and lady have recently refreshed and refurbished the room to offer flexible and comfortable accommodation.   

Downstairs, there are two spacious bar areas with traditional wooden floors and woodburning 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.

Corsham and Wiltshire are popular tourist attractions and The Royal Oak provides an ideal resting place for coffee and homemade cake, a lunchtime snack or a lively evening in a traditional English hostelry.  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.
