A real gem. Great pub site set back behind the village green in a lovely village.

Camping is on grass at the back of the pub which was mainly flat. Electric points are around the edge of the field. No facilities outside of the pub except for black waste disposal but good clean toilets in the pub open early in the morning.

The pub itself was very welcoming and the food was great with outside seating on the edge of the village green with a view of the free roaming cattle. Very peaceful. We will return.

Pretty much agree with previous comments, Real Ale spot on food was a high standard, we ate in the pub both nights. Public transport very thin on the ground waited ages for a bus, wanted to go to Nottingham, gave up and settled for Bingham. I felt very welcome with locals & staff. So much so that I am arranging a Burns Supper with Richard a very likeable chap. My Bagpipes only come out when I am happy.

What a great little site in the country side. Grass pitches with electric hook ups. Waste water and elsan point. Toilets available in the pub during opening hours 11:00 - 11:00.

Located at the rear of the pub which offers a great selection of beers and wines including guest ales.

A roaring log fire in the bar area to ward off the chills.

Good bar food and specials at reasonable prices.

Child friendly site although no play area for them but plenty of open space to play safely.

A short drive into Bingham for local shops etc.

Will definitely use this site again and only £10. 50 a night.

A cracking site, it was just a simple flat expanse of cut grass, with all the amenities you need. For a tenner, including electric, it was brilliant value. The toilets were spotless.

There wasn't much in the way of shops/attractions, but that one of the main reasons this site was chosen.

The Royal Oak was all you'd expect from a country pub, efficient friendly staff, very friendly locals and the food was superb. Well done Richard and crew.

Just returned from The Royal Oak Certified site and we have thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We managed to get an electric hook up pitch last minute at Bank Holiday weekend. The site is lovely and clean and the toilet blocks which are situated inside the pub are also immaculate. The Royal Oak is a lovely traditional pub with home cooked food and a very friendly atmosphere. The staff are all friendly and the service is excellent. We had Sunday roast and would recommend it and before we left we has a couple of sandwiches with a bowl of homemade chips, which was also lovely. The only negative comment I would give is there are no shower block facilities and if this was added it would be something that would certainly improve this site. We will definitely return to this site again in the future.

Everything about this site is right. The owner, the landlord, Richard, is really friendly and helpful.

The site is a big field behind the pub, well-kept and mown. The facilities, water, waste, recycling etc. , are spot on.

The pub is great with friendly locals, well-kept real ales, a good selection of reasonably priced wines, and excellent food. Dogs allowed in the bar. We had a huge sandwich with chips for lunch when we arrived, an evening meal one night and Sunday lunch. All excellent, and very good value too.

Nice area: Colwick Country Park ten miles away is beautiful for walking, and the old town of Newark is well worth a visit.

A cracking site and I canít wait to return.

Just got back from a bank holiday weekend away with my family & it was excellent.

We didn't want to travel far so it was ideal as it was only 30 mins away.

Nice big field at the back of the pub with nice clean facilities you can use the toilet in the pub when its open.

Excellent food available as well as a good selection of drinks to choose from.

The pitches are £10.50 a night with electric which is excellent value for money & we will be returning to this site in the future.

Visited this site and stopped for one night just to test our new caravan. Site is lovely and quiet. There was a rally on and we thought we might not be able to pitch with electric but the landlord Richard was brilliant and gave us a couple of pitches to choose from.

The pub is lovely and welcoming too, and although we didn't eat, the menu did look very tempting with a specials board available too. The pub is very 'dog friendly' too.

There are some pretty little villages around and walks to choose from.

If there are a few of you - you can have use of the skittle alley at the back of the pub too which was nice.

There isn't a shower and you can only use the pub's toilets when they are open, but this isn't a real problem if you are self contained.

Nice site - will definitely be making it a regular stop.

Reviewer: Jnewitt 6 reviews from this member

Just got back from this site and it was amazingly clean & tidy for £10pn which included electric hook up,

the food was amazingly good and not to expensive but we would recommend you book as its a very popular pub with the locals,

there are no shower blocks but its a pub site and we don't expect that anyway, but we have a shower in our van, the toilets were spotless as like everything else,

our dog loved the field which was newly mowed and she could run to her delight.

Reviewer: Littleangel343 2 reviews from this member

We have recently bought a new caravan and wanted to test it close to home so came here! As the first review says, its in a field behind a pub and in a very quiet location. Electric Hookup was included and it was only £10 per night. When we arrived we set up and went for a meal which was superb! Extremely friendly and helpful staff and locals. It was explained that we could use the pub toilets when the pub was open and was shown where the tap and toilet emptying facilities were. Overall, the food is excellent although it advisable to book as it is popular, very quiet location and we will definitely be returning. One down point is the field gets very boggy and muddy and when it rains unless you have a 4x4 you could get stuck in the mud although there is always someone in the smoke shed to give you a push. Really looking forward in going back again.
