The Oak Room isn’t just one of the most talked about restaurants in Basingstoke, Hook, Hampshire and beyond, it’s reputation for serving innovative cuisine with a distinctly British twist is also spreading throughout Hampshire, Surrey and the entire South East of England.

The Oak Room gets its name from the rich oak panelling that creates an elegant ambience and the room is crowned with a domed ceiling. Breakfast is taken in the Oak Room Restaurant where you can enjoy beautiful views of the gardens and lawns.

The menu boasts both seasonal specialities and signature dishes, and naturally everything is prepared to order. The cuisine is complemented by a carefully chosen wine list, and the quiet and attentive service completes a memorable experience.

The restaurant is also open for lunch, and in the evenings fine cuisine is enjoyed to the quiet accompaniment of a tinkling grand piano.

Chef Profile

Stephen Hine has been Head Chef for the award winning Oak Room Restaurant since Tylney Hall opened its doors as an hotel in 1985

Under Head Chef, Stephen Hine’s, creative influence, the Oak Room has become a signature Hampshire restaurant serving innovative modern cuisine celebrating the best of British produce. Only the best and freshest takes pride of place on the menu, and our food is carefully sourced either from trusted local suppliers or from the finest in London.

The Oak Room’s accolades include two AA rosettes and Stephen prides himself on using the best ingredients available to create classical dishes with a modern approach and, naturally, all dishes are prepared to order.

Hampshire produce is high on the menu as, according to Chef Hine, ‘Hampshire has an enormous amount to offer, asparagus, mushrooms and berries, especially strawberries which are superb, and when it comes to cheeses, only those made in Hampshire are served at Tylney Hall.’
