About us

Tracy & Rob welcome all customers old and new to our lovely friendly village pub.

The Oak Inn is a traditional English country inn that sits on the very edge of the scenic new forest in Dorset. Hidden down a short country road it’s just a stone’s throw from historic Christchurch and the resort town of Bournemouth.

A welcome respite for locals and travellers alike, all the family will be greeted with a warm and friendly welcome, delicious home cooked food and a comprehensive array of beverages to fulfil the most healthy of appetites.
