Look at Trip Advisor--you will see for yourself whether you 'get us' or not. There seems no middle ground here--we are either exactly what you want, or exactly what you don't want!
The food was fabulous, the service informal and very attentive and the garden and surroundings a delight.
Nothing was too much trouble, which is excellent, especially when there are 6 fussy women to cater for!
Thank you for our lovely day out on the Farm tour. It was marvellous to see happy pigs romping about in natural surroundings and cows so lovingly cared for.
We had a wonderful lunch in a very convivial setting and then lazed about in the pub garden all afternoon listening to live music. The weather was lovely and the setting is beautiful. We had one of those perfect summer days that remain in the memory and the seductive magic of Eastbrook and Bishopstone bid us linger.
Farming, and especially organic farming, will never make anyone rich. Eastbrook Farm is clearly about so much more than making money. The passion and commitment of everyone involved is very apparent. It is uplifting to know that there are people dedicating their lives to producing great food in a humane and sustainable way. Helen is of course an inspirational and pioneering figurehead in the organic movement. The rest of us are fortunate indeed that you hae dedicated your life to this cause.
I just wanted to send a quick email of thanks to everyone at the Royal Oak for the delightful stay my mother and I had there ten days ago. Back in New York now and dreaming of running away to join you... The beds were comfy and the food and wine were simply fantastic.
We had to walk a few extra miles along the Ridgeway to make up for that.

Bishopstone is about 8 miles east of Swindon, 10 miles west of Wantage. In the village is a large duckpond. If the pond is on the right, the next lane on the left is Cues Lane. The Royal Oak is 50 yards down there on the right. The car park is beyond it and round the back.
Please be aware that unfortunately it is a difficult pub to access for disabled users, but our staff are willing to assist wherever possible and suitable. Call ahead and ask us, if you can.
