The Royal Oak is situated in Warboys, Cambridgeshire, a large village seven miles north east of Huntingdon with the pub benefitting from a prominent position on a main road through the village just off the A141. Several local amenities include a primary school, several churches, library and a number of shops. The Royal Oak is a traditional style pub which is well supported by the local community and hamlets.
Pub Layout – The Royal Oak Cambridgeshire
To the front of the property fenced off from the car park is the seasonally popular beer garden. Moving into the pub off the car park is the door to the lounge area and a passage way, with ladies and gents’ toilets leading to the popular bar area. Patio doors to the right of the bar lead onto a small outside paved area. Back of house comprises a sizeable commercial kitchen, beer cellar and access to the private accommodation. The décor is a mixture of loose and fixed seating with traditional wooden beams and an open fire creating a warm and welcoming ambience. Externally there is a car park for approximately twenty vehicles.
The Royal Oak is the main hub in the community with a comprehensive choice of drinks including cask ales. The nature of the trading layout creates a warm and friendly atmosphere and the success of the business will rely heavily on the operator of the business making time for and getting actively involved with the local community whilst also making visitors to the area feel welcome. With the well-equipped kitchen, food has been implemented over the past couple of years and there is an opportunity to expand on this further.
Private Accommodation The first floor private accommodation comprises of a lounge, office, separate bathroom and toilet and two bedrooms. The office could be utilised as a third single bedroom. There is also a good size private garden

BDM VISION – The Royal Oak Cambridgeshire
We are looking for ambitious operators who know the local area and would want to take the Royal Oak to the next level. Whilst the pub is well run with the current licensees with good standards, there are opportunities to develop this further by including a bespoke food offer in an area that has relatively limited drink and dining choices
