The Royal Oak, a Grade II-listed 200-year-old inn two miles north of Chichester, is The Independent on Sunday's Hotel of the Week. It is described as a "top-end gastro pub with rooms, offering a comfortable cheery feel, blending the rural beauty of its surroundings with 21st century luxury". It employs six full-time chefs and serves traditional British cuisine with a Mediterranean twist. The Independent on Sunday 19/03/06 (The Compact Traveller) page 9
