|It's not far from the Golden Slipper to the Royal Oak. In fact, they're right nextdoor to one another!. The Royal Oak is a multi-roomed pub and worth a visit. It was fairly quiet yesterday afternoon. But there was still a decent enough range of ales - Theakston Old Peculier, Greene King Abbot, Partners Triple Hop & Shoddy Porter & Salamander Block Tackle. Cider was Old Rosie. We had to re-located from the rear bar to one of the front ones, as it was too hot.|

|Although food orientated, there is a good selection of beer available here, as already mentioned by His Lorship below. The front bar was crowded with an enthusiastic drinking crowd whilst the diners used the other two rooms. The back bar was really hot and, as a result, there was a strong smell of the 'great unwashed' - at least cigarette smoke used to hide some of the less pleasant odours that now have to be endured.|
Worth a go, but keep to the front bar!

|A comfortable two bar pub with a snug, and a labyrinthine, vertigo-inducing climb to the Gentlemen’s Lavatorial Facility. Unfortunately, a pub on the moon would have more atmosphere than The Royal Oak. As with The Three Tuns, you can have three one-third pint samplers, or, should you prefer, three malt whiskies for £10.00.|
The choice of ale was between Timothy Taylor “Landlord”, Bradfield Brewery “Farmer’s Harvest”, Theakston’s “Old Peculier”, Greene King’s “Abbot Ale” and Leeds Brewery “Samba” at three guineas – absolutely outrageous for a 3.7% beer!
Not at all inspiring, I’m afraid so I set off for pastures new….5/10.

|Had a couple of pints of Landlord and Old Peculiar, which were lovely! The bar is a real drinking area with a good atmosphere should you prefer to the lounge, which is a nice historic setting for a meal. The food is not the cheapest but represents VERY good value for money as it was substantial and of high quality. We visited with a wheelchair user which is usually quite difficult in 'listed' buildings, but the bar area was quite accessible and there was a separate accessible wash room and seating area which is very unusual for a listed building. Despite this option we ate in the lounge area due to its setting and the service was excellent from everyone|

|Seemed to be closed for refurbishment. Fingers crossed it isn't ruined. The back room in particular was a lovely spot.|
