Blackthorn _ left this review about The London Oak

This pub has been split in to two distinctly different venues, each with their own style and entrance. As such, it should perhaps merit two separate listings, although they are clearly related as they both have London in the name and the screens around the pavement seating outside both venues have the same London Inn branding.

The venue to the right, which is known as The London or The London Inn depending on where you look, has a much more contemporary bar like feel to it and is presumably designed to attract a younger crowd. A band was playing in there on a recent Thursday evening.

We opted for the London Oak however, and this is an all together more traditional pub with a low ceiling and plenty of (oak?) beams around, both on parts of the walls as well as the ceiling. Carpet covers the floor and there is a wood panelled bar in one corner which all the punters were gathered leaving the tables and chairs elsewhere deserted. A plasma was mounted on a wall in the corner, but the volume was not on. Instead background pop music was playing. A number of mirrors adorned the walls, many being beer branded including one from the now defunct Bristol brewery Smiles.

Menus were out on all the tables at 9:45, even though a sign said that food was served until 8:00. From a quick glance it looked to be a mass produced laminated affair with the usual pub staples such as Chicken Curry. The chef was drinking in the bar and appeared somewhat the worse for wear, so it’s just as well that they had stopped serving. There is also a Mexican restaurant upstairs which is accessed from inside the pub.

Despite the "extensive range of good beers" advertised on their website, the solitary one on offer was Gem. Ciders were Blackthorn and Thatcher’s Gold. This has got the potential to be a decent and cosy pub, but the rather boisterous clientele that were there on a recent visit created a less then relaxing atmosphere and they really need to do something with the choice of beer.
