Broad Oak is a village north of Sturry (where the population is included) in Kent, England. It is located on the A291 road to Herne Bay, just north of Sturry.

Some of the buildings in Broad Oak are very old - for example, Mead Manor is 14th century and mentioned in the Domesday Book.

Broad Oak Chapel, built in 1867, is a Chapel of the Countess of Huntingdon.

There are two pubs in the village, The Royal Oak and The Golden Lion. However The Royal Oak has been closed for some time and is currently subject to a planning application for redevelopment of the site.
