The Royal Oak makes the most of the abundant supply of local fresh produce in every one of their dishes, but they will not limit themselves to the behaviour of the weather as they believe that the taste should come first, so will source produce internationally where necessary. They use fresh fish from the south shore, caught and delivered daily as well as locally-smoked salmon and Selsey crab. When using Venison and Pheasant they will source these from the local herdsman. The Royal Oak's Ice cream is even made locally, as is their cheese.
