The Royal Oak is a Marston’s pub with a U-shaped bar that supports seven handpumps, two of which were unused and one was off. This left Wainwright and Pedigree available alongside Bank’s Amber and Sunbeam. A standard keg range is also available. The bar on the right wall faces seating up the left and there is a seating room to the right of the entrance. To the left is more seating and a fireplace. Televisions are located throughout for airing Sky Sports, some EFL football was playing during my midweek evening visit. The service was polite and I left thinking that this was a decent local’s boozer.

Traditional Marstons Pub, that I wasn't necessarily expecting in South Manchester.

Lovely old school feel inside, with rooms eminating from a central curved bar. Some outside seating on the main road.

Usual Marstons beers. Boondoggle OK.

This is a very neat Marstons pub. There's a separate room to the right and several other areas around the bar. There's a nice fireplace in one of the areas and a TV in every area along with a jukebox. A chatty barman and a middle aged clientele add to the attractions. It was fairly busy on my Friday, late afternoon visit. There are 8 handpumps and the beers are all from the extended Marstons stable, despite WhatPub claiming that they have guest beers. My pint was in good nick and I enjoyed my time here, it's a good pub.
