Alan Winfield left this review about The Royal Duke

The Royal Duke is a smallish stand alone pub that is a short walk from the middle of Oakham.
The pub still had its old John Smiths signs outside which was nice to see,i can remember them from the late 80s.
Once inside the pub still has two seperate rooms,we went in the bar which was to the right,this was a smallish oblong shaped room that was carpeted and had club type chairs,the lounge to the left was similar in shape and empty on our Saturday dinner visit,there was a seperate pool room to the rear left.
There were no real ales on the bar,the keg bitter was John Smiths smooth crap which was a pretty poor drink.
This is the sort of pub that the smoking ban usually hits first,but this one was very busy inside and smokers outside to the rear.
I like proper pubs like this,just a shame there was not one real ale on.
