The Royal Oak at Poynings
There has been a 'Royal Oak' on this site since the 1880's. The present 'Royal Oak' is privately owned and operated by Paul Day and Lewis Robinson who aquired the business in 1996. Chef David Wharton, who joined the Royal Oak more than ten years ago, has recently joined Paul and Lewis as a partner in the business.
There is, of course, a team of loyal staff headed up by Innkeeper and Host Nick Jerrim who originates from Tasmania but has a wealth of experience in the hospitality industry in the Brighton area.
The kitchen team is headed up by David Wharton. He is assisted by Nick Sheldrick, together with Chris, Jo Anne & Lucy making up an enthusiastic (and busy!) team.
We are well aware that a well designed, comfortable and spotlessly clean environment is just the starting point for your eating and drinking experience here at the Royal Oak. Of course, the food and drinks you enjoy and, in particular, the warm welcome and standard of service you encounter are even more important and it is here that we will continue to strive to ensure that you get the very best.
