Soup Dragon left this review about Royal Oak

This is detached pub and eatery with rear area. It is a 1930s rebuild of a pub on the same site. It is in plain brick, a symmetrical winged-corridor type of building. The interior has been completely knocked through into one massive L-shaped room. It is in coffee and white, with some fake beams. The walls are bare. There is a pool table at one end and there are several TVs which were showing the darts. The music was fairly loud Bhangra stuff. The seating has brown bench seats and foody table - as such, the place does reasonably priced food, but i didn't eat. The service was functional and a few locals were in - i felt it was a little unfriendly at first, until i chose the locked door to get out and several people laughingly pointed me to the right one. Beer; no rela ale, just usual taps with a decent enough keg Banks's MILD. A run-of-the-mill pub, nothing for the real ale fan.
