A countryside pub in a gorgeous Surrey location has gone up for sale, with just over half an acre plot of land attached to it. The Royal Oak in Wrecclesham dates back to 1609, with gorgeous oak beams and feature brickwork fireplaces throughout.

Currently, the pub is closed for trading due to family reasons according to it’s Facebook page, but when it was in operation it had a great reputation. The pub was family and dog-friendly, and well known for its delicious Sunday roasts. And now it could be yours - but it will set you back £595,000.

There's the option to purchase the pub or rent it to a pub landlord. This would bring in around £28,000 per year, it is estimated. The pub currently has a Premises Licence, allowing the pub to remain open until midnight from Monday to Thursday, 1am on Friday and Saturday, and 11pm on Sunday nights.

It’s estimated that the pub can cater for around 65 covers inside the restaurant area, and 70 outside. The large detached property has an ample car park for around nine vehicles and a generously sized beer garden area. Inside, the pub is traditionally laid out, with open-plan bar and dining. There’s also a commercial kitchen, customer toilets and basement cellar with stores.

On the first floor there are four double bedrooms, a family bathroom, an office and a kitchen. Listed with Savills, the pub is being sold as a freehold with vacant possession, so it could be great for someone looking for an independent and family-run business.

The previous owners provided a relaxed atmosphere and homemade food. There was a play area for children, and table tennis which was great during the summer months. In February 2024, the Food Standards Agency awarded the pub a five-star hygiene rating.

One customer wrote previously in a review: “Went to the Royal Oak for Sunday roast with the wife, it's was very nice and a decent portion size, it was the puddings that made it perfect, definitely recommend this place if you want a easy Sunday roast. Thank you to the owner..”

Another said: “Lovely meal at this pub. Friendly service. It also has a great garden for a drink on a hot day,” as one penned: “Absolutely fantastic, food was unbelievable cannot recommend enough, the owner was one of the best!!”

It attracted a great crowd by showing sporting events like the Six Nations Rugby, and hosting quiz nights. Live music would also take place on weekends, bringing the community together.

Aside from the great potential of the property, the pub is also situated in a very desirable location. It’s one of the oldest villages in Farnham (Wrecclesham) and is surrounded by fabulous places to go for walks.

Alice Holt Forest and Farnham Park are two great spots to explore, and Birdworld is just around the corner. The sanctuary is a great day out for children, with plenty to see and lots to learn about animals.

The village itself is very well connected, it has the A31 road running north of it, which is a direct link to Southampton and Portsmouth. It's not far from the A3, which links Wrecclesham to the M25.

For public transport links, there are bus connections making it easy to travel to the nearest train station which is in Farnham, Basingstoke and even Winchester. To get in to London, the easiest way would be to get a train from Farnham station.
