peter ashworth left this review about The Royal Oak

This pub holds the annual World Black Pudding Throwing Championship which used to be held at the Corner Pin pub (no longer there)in Stubbings just down the road.Participants have to throw (underarm)the puddings in an attempt to dislodge a stack of Yorkshire puddings placed on plinths on two levels (one for children,the other for adults)symbolising the ancient rivalry between Lancashire and Yorkshire.The winner is the one who dislodges most Yorkshire puddings in three attempts.
