We’re so lucky to have such a friendly and welcoming team at the Great Oak, who have really grown with us since we opened in 2006. Our team are great at putting people at ease and making sure everyone has a great dinner with us, from our hard-working serving team to our expert kitchen team.
We do our best to support the community, whether that’s through raffle prizes in aid of schools and local charities or bigger projects sponsoring the local football team.
We’re named after the Great Oak, a majestic 350-year-old tree next door. We may not be quite as tall or as old as our neighbour, but we’ve been serving fantastic quality steak for over 15 years, and we’ve become pretty good at it! We’re really easy to get to, just off the A3 with easy links on to Portsmouth, Winchester and Chichester.
Our restaurant has a relaxed bar area and a great pub garden, with views of our friendly neighbour, the Great Oak Tree itself. If you’re looking for a prime pub lunch and some of the best steak in Hampshire, you’ve come to the right place!

Why we love Petersfield
Hampshire has some of the most scenic spots to visit in the UK and our quaint market town of Petersfield is no exception. The Great Oak is really close to some great days out, whether that’s National Trust Parks like Queen Elizabeth Country Park or the South Downs National Park, a relaxing stroll after a delicious meal with us is a treat everyone deserves! We’re also close to Portsmouth Dockyard, with beautiful sea views – perfect after stopping by for fish and chips for dinner!
There’s plenty of other things to do in Petersfield, all close to our restaurant. Explore Petersfield Museum, take a trip back through time at Butser Ancient Farm or discover the deer at Sky Park Farm.
Our regulars love our steaks, which is why they’re our specialty at Beefeater! Our 10oz ribeye steak is one of our juiciest cuts, aged for a minimum of 30 days, packed with flavour and served with chunky triple cooked chips, crispy flat mushroom, juicy grilled tomatoes and peppercorn sauce. Our smothered chicken melt is another favourite – grilled chicken breast glazed with our Beefeater 1974 BBQ sauce, topped with crispy oak-smoked streaky bacon, melting mozzarella and Cheddar cheese. We don’t blame you if you’re starting to get hungry!
