The Oak closed for a month in early 2024 due to higher running costs and reduced returns. This maybe repeated in future. Each Saturday, 10-12, the Oak has a deli counter of fine cheeses and also hosts locally brewed Roughacre beers and Wild Flower home baking.

Regular beers: Greene King IPA

See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

Friendly community pub. The pub has escaped the fashion for 'opening out' and still keeps its two bar status (complete with the obligatory wooden beams and wood paneling) and a separate games room. As well as the rear garden there is a seating area at the front. The Greene King IPA is by popular demand. The other two hand-pumps may feature ales from local breweries (including the village-founded Roughacre brewery) as well as national beers like Spitfire and London Pride. Bottle conditioned Roughacre beers are always available. The Oak isn't currently offering food on a regular basis. Food vans will visit some evenings. Occasional pie evenings and fish & chips nights. Formerly the Cock Inn, it became the Oak in April 2019. Schoolboys no longer snigger. Cambridge & District CAMRA LocAle (Rural) Pub of the Year 2020.
