Brainy Pool left this review about The Royal Oak

a two roomed pub with a main room split into two drinking areas and a pool room at the far end. it’s a fairly basic, grimy place inside with entirely older drinkers in today. The nine real ales make it well worth visiting though, as I could have happily worked through them all. my pint was cheap.

Real Ale Ray left this review about Dirty Dick's Ale House

A good traditional pub, with a selection of 9 ales and 4 ciders. This included a Dirty Dicks ale 4.2% brewed by Empire. The interior was mock Tudor, with oak panelling and a mock Tudor fireplace, Black ceiling beams and a pot shelf above the bar. The windows were leaded with some stained glass motifs. The Gents loos had the original Oates + Creen Halifax and London sanitary ware.
The pub attracts an older crowd, who enjoy a good pint of ale. We went for the Newby Wyke Grantham Gold and their Dirty Dicks ale, both were well kept.
