Aqualung . left this review about The Oak

This is not somewhere I had planned to visit. It consists of a fairly plain open plan room with an island bar, a carpet to the left and a wooden floor to the right. There is a prominent jukebox and TV sport is advertised everywhere. I arrived here early on a Saturday afternoon to find it empty. The Juke Box appeared to be playing the "latest hits" which were all unfamiliar to me.
There is a solitary hand pump which had Enville Simpkiss, although it was badged as another Enville brew. I went for this and at £2.50 it was good value but the condition was only reasonable.
The whole place seemed to be geared up to showing football and the jukebox. I doubt that I would return.

A pub that is basic on every level. A simple open plan pub with a central bar and a unique aroma. All white walls and wooden floored. 2 handpumps on the bar with only Backyard Gold on. There were friendly enough people in on this afternoon.

This pub sellswhat is probably the worst pint I have ever tasted and for my sins I have been here more the once and it has been the same every time so I have given up on it now. I think the issue is that it is so quiet that unless you drink larger then it's probably not the freshist of pints.

This pub has a half brick and half white and black beam exterior. It has a beer patio at the back

The interior is open plan around a central bar area. The decor is red and white walls, with some beige wood panel - the attempt at a more modern look saw the arty pictures on the walls. Sadly, this doesnt seem that kind of place, with TVs on and loud music banging out of the jukebox. Service was functional at best. Clientele consisted of a few decent looking people, but a lot of kids and more that you would keep clear of.

Beer; this place usued to have Banks's Dark MILD and Hobgoblin on handpull. The four handpull now operate fresh air and its all the usual keg stuff, with Banks's MILD - which was poor.

We left and are unlikely to return

Was closed, and boarded up, but now thankfully reopen.

Had a makeover, but the wonderful round bar in the middle has survived.

Karaoke on a Friday night, with a huge array of songs to chose from. And Thursday's is curry night, and I think it's £4.50 for curry, rice and naan and a pint.

Think there is a quiz night too.
