Royal Oak Dover

Welcome to the Royal Oak, Dover

A charming pub at the heart of the village of River

The Royal Oak lies at the heart of the pretty village of River, a gentle stroll away from the well-known Crabble Corn Mill and a short drive from the attractive Kearsney Abbey Gardens.

It’s a charming and traditional British pub - with proper ales and good, honest food. The beer comes courtesy of Shepherd Neame, Britain’s oldest brewer, while our traditional hearty pub food is all cooked fresh to order, using locally sourced ingredients wherever possible. 

The Sunday roast here is something of a local legend and indeed, making a mark on the local community is important to us. 

Our quiz nights, held every week since 2003, have raised more than £20,000 for a variety of local charities. We also have lots of live music and special food nights, making the Royal Oak the centre of events for the village.

Whether you’re local or visiting, there’s always a very welcome for all at the Royal Oak. Why not come and see us soon.
