This is a placeholder page until the pub is able to reopen in the Royal Oak. When this happens will depend largely on the progress of the pandemic, but also on how long it takes us to do the necessary work to upgrade the building and improve safety and accessibility.

We are aiming for a friendly and informal setting with good simple food at reasonable prices and excellent beer. The skittle alleys will both be available, and we welcome feedback on any aspect of what people would like to see in the pub.

We will shortly be recruiting for a new manager, and we would definitely welcome feedback on this too. It’s a crucial post, so if you know anyone who you think would be ideal for the job, let us know. This is the updated job description.
