The Royal Oak in Swallowcliffe is gearing up to reopen its doors, and the opening night is already fully booked.

TV presenter James May who bought 'half the pub' said the venue will reopen to customers on Wednesday October 28.

The former Top Gear presenter announced last month he had bought half the Royal Oak much to the delight of local residents.

The much-loved pub has been closed since the pandemic began in March.
