See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

The Royal Oak is a charming pub situated in the village of River near Dover and was until recently a Shepherd Neame tied house for many years.

The pub was originally formed from two 18th century flint cottages and earliest records show that the pub started trading in the early 19th century.

A friendly, warm welcome complements their range of real ales and there is a good selection of British food is available on the menu.

Round the back of the pub there is a garden for those warm summer days. In the winter there are two wood burners to keep out the cold while enjoying your pint.

A number of events keep the pub busy during the year including quizzes, open mic nights, live music and themed food evenings.

Walkers are welcome to pop in for a pint or two.Historic England Entry: 1070319
