Quinno _ left this review about The Royal Oak

Lovely GII listed building on a junction. A sign outside proclaims its inclusion in the 2016 GBG, which it really is now time to retire - it’s not in the 2022 edition!. The CAMRA Inventory listed interior, which is nicely laid out and has some decent brewer’s tudor fittings (some salvaged from the breaking-up of HMS Newcastle), has moved from lived-in to shabby; scuffed floor, mismatched banquette fabric and in some places worn to the quick. Work, where it has been done (eg the varnishing of the wood panelling) is slapdash. A wait at the bar whilst Martin Freeman's unlucky brother was on a call exasperatedly telling some goon elsewhere that if the girl signed for the delivery, they can't now get him to complain that half of it was missing. Eight pumps with five on, three from Acorn and singles from Saltaire and GK. I wasn’t expecting much, so was delighted to find that my Acorn Moor Porter was really good (NBSS 4) so on that score this place is better than some of the more lauded outlets nearby who were serving warm, pump-tired cask.

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.
