The Royal Oak is first mentioned on a 1881 Ordnance Survey map of Lostwithiel. Samuel Sampson had been a wine spirit and ale retailer resident at Kingdon House (the main part of today’s Royal Oak) since at least 1871 so it is not known exactly when or why the name was changed. Before this time records are scarce but we know that in the 1860s the building we now know as the Royal Oak was run as a school and was known as Kingdon House Academy. John and Jane Stephens opened the Academy in 1857 having previously run a similar establishment in Hillyar House. Nine male pupils between the ages of nine and 13 were under the tutelage of John Stephens and boarded at the Academy. The school must have flourished as in 1865 the business expanded and moved to Norway House. ln January of this year Ann Tumser John and Jane’s great granddaughter who lives in California paid a short visit to Lostwithiel. Ann has done much research about her ancestors and the town and comes back regularly. The dining area complete with woodburner is linked to the bar and there’s a secluded area ideal for meetings and functions for up to 20 people. Andy Gibbin uses fresh local ingredients whenever he can with daily special dishes always on offer. Cornwall is a wonderful area for fresh produce with the coast and its fish and shellfish close by and meat and game coming from the county’s extensive farming community. As well as a range of starters main and desserts we also serve light lunches sandwiches and salads..
