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.
