James Lyon Shaw has acquired The Greene Oak in Oakley Green, which was formerly owned by Greene King's Metropolitan Pub Company.

The entrepreneur will relaunch it on 19 September alongside ex-Ivy chef Jamie Dobbin.

Dobbin will be heading up the kitchen at the pub, having left his role as Groucho’s head chef.

The menu, which will change daily, will offer hearty pub dishes including flat iron steak with béarnaise and chips; cheeseburger with beer braised onion and maple glazed bacon; and roast chicken with beans, gnocchi and hollandaise.

Lighter options will include Thornback ray wing with beer braised onions; cauliflower steak with woodland mushrooms, pine nuts and truffle; and Torbay plaice with brown butter, sea vegetables and sherry vinegar.

Side dishes will include triple cooked chips; and salad using produce from the pub’s allotment.

Desserts will include traditional pub fare such as sticky toffee pudding; double chocolate mousse; and lemon posset with shortbread. Cheese and Eccles cake will also be available.

Weekends will see the pub serve traditional roast lunches, which it has already gained a strong following for in the local community.

The owners will work with local artisanal suppliers, fishing day boats, and rare breed farmers.
