The Royal Oak is a fantastic country pub located in the Village of East Bergholt, which sits halfway between Colchester and Ipswich in the Dedham Vale which is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Despite its rural location it has good transport links, being only a mile from the A12 and four miles from the nearest town and railway station at Manningtree.
The pub itself is a very attractive two story detached property with great views of the surrounding countryside including its own large garden at the rear. It is cottage like in style and sits on the main road going through the village with houses either side of the road from the pub. There is a Co-op, hardware store, estate agents and bakery all within walking distance of the pub. East Bergholt also has a good sized campsite and holiday park that is only a couple of hundred yards from the pub.
