The Royal Oak has endless opportunities, and we are looking for a management company with the skill to spot these and take this pub business to the next level. The pub is at the centre of the community and the perfect company will have innovative ideas whilst instilling personality and heart to ignite an emotional connection with locals. With plenty of space inside and out, you will need an active mind and a can-do approach to create and maximise every occasion.

The ideal management company will bring a happy and engaged team to the Royal Oak, ensuring it is the place to go for a familiar face, to watch a game or to enjoy family fun in the garden.

The Royal Oak is well-loved for its delicious food, so experience in delivering an epic food menu would be invaluable. We are looking to work with a management company with a shared vision of ensuring the Royal Oak is the place to be for all occasions.

The Pub

The Royal Oak is perfectly set up to welcome guests into a warm pub environment. It has an open plan layout but with a characterful and traditional feel, featuring unique accents, plenty of comfortable seating and original stone fireplaces. There is also a dedicated games room with a pool table and darts area and a plethora of TV screens dotted around the pub. The Royal Oak is versatile, transforming from the perfect place to enjoy a cosy meal with friends in the colder months to a vibrant and lively summer venue. With two sunny terraces, a lovely beer garden and a children’s play area it’s the place to be to watch the sun set over the village.

The Royal Oak is on the main road through the picturesque village of Exminster, just 10 minutes from Exeter. The village is on the River Exe and has a beautiful estuary. It has a true community feel and is the perfect place to host key local activities throughout the year, designed to bring the community together for all occasions.

The Opportunity

The Royal Oak provides the opportunity for the right management company to become fully immersed within a fantastic local community. This pub should be the beating heart of Exminster. As your own boss of your management company you will be at the forefront of your team, engaging with guests and developing a strong relationship with your neighbours, welcoming them through the pub’s doors. This exciting opportunity comes with spacious three bedroom domestic accommodation above the pub.
