About us

The Royal Oak Cerne is a beautiful independently owned 16th century thatched freehouse pub run by a very friendly professional team. 

We pride ourselves on our great quality, home cooked delicious food, using locally sourced ingredients where possible. We have a wonderful choice of real ales, ciders and lagers, as well as a comprehensive and interesting wine list.

 When visiting the beautiful village of Cerne Abbas do take the opportunity to come and sit by our roaring log fire in winter or dine under the grape vines in the beer garden in summer.  Keep an eye on our website and facebook pages for regular events and themed evenings.
