Welcome to the heart of Barcombe.


Where nice people gather

The Royal Oak in Barcombe is an unspoilt, community pub with a warm welcome, original features and an open fire. We offer the best in pub food, Sunday roasts and cask beers all served with good company and a great atmosphere.

Our separate function space, The Skittle Room with its vaulted ceiling and oak beams is ideal for gatherings, private dining, parties, meetings and community events and is available for hire in the afternoon and evenings. It even has one of Sussex’s only traditional skittle alleys, which is great fun for all ages.

We serve a selection of well kept Harvey’s ales, lagers and wines and a growing collection of premium spirits.

Exceptional, locally sourced food favourites

Whenever possible we source local ingredients including aged steaks from Holmansbridge Farm, locally landed fish and seasonal vegetables. We always serve good quality, classic pub food that is prepared with real care and attention. There’s something for everyone and the plates always come back cleared.


Just bring a smile…

We’re proud to be Harvey’s

For many a pub in and around Lewes isn’t a pub unless it serves the locally produced and beloved local ale, Harvey’s. We always have a selection of Harvey’s finest cask ales on tap as well as a selection of lagers and ciders.
