|A good locals pub, very much a music venue. Had a pint of London Pride (the only ale on but well kept). Friendly dogs in the garden on this occasion. |

|You can tell the place is going to be bad when the previous comment (by "FishKing") is clearly the landlords (Wendy, or more likely Chris) posting themselves...as per most of the positive comments about this place.|
Are there long-term customers? no
Do people visit this place often? no
Do any of the original customers go here any more? no
Why is this? Very simple, Wendy cares only about your money and not her customers. I mean look at the state of the interior or talk to anyone who has made a visit or even eaten the economy Sunday roast dinners (from Bookers last time I checked).
Do not give this place a penny from your pocket!!!

|Let me start by saying this is the 1st time I have posted a review online it's not really my thing.|
I moved to Hampton almost a year ago I started drinking in the worlds End which I think is a nice pub and only a 5min walk for me. I then went one night went over to the Royal Oak to see a band I like. After hearing a few good and bad things about the place I didn't know what to expect it was very busy with a good atmosphere the land lady Wendy came and spoke to me for about 5min and seem like a very nice woman and it the end I had a fantastic night and met some really nice people. A few weeks later I took my wife and 3yr old son to the oak for Sunday lunch which was a really nice and my son made lots of little friends to lol. Me and my wife ending up chatting to Wendy for about 20min she made as feel so welcome and at home in her pub. The place did look like it needed some work done on it and I did drive past a few days ago and saw there was some work being done on the outside but don't know about the inside. I will be going back to this fantastic little pub. I think some of the comments below must be put up by rival pubs and people that have been barred because some of them are really spiteful and low. I hope people go to this pub and make up there own minds like I did.

|My nearest pub and I'd love to give it praise but the Royal Oak simply doesn't deserve an ounce. It's just the scruffiest dump I've ever been in and whoever's running it, clearly gave up any interest in serving the community some while back. |
Only popped-in once shortly after we moved in - and couldn't believe that it's even worse on the inside than outside. Here are some of its lowlights:
Dark smelly interior
Only one ale on draft (Spitfire) which was very badly kept when I visited
Grubby net curtains - so you can't see in
Tinny sound system booming out Magic FM or something similar.
Peeling paint and a really tatty exterior helpfully this acts as a natural warning and puts most people from going anywhere near it .
Such a shame as the area's reasonably affluent and I know that were there a more pleasant, vibrant pub in its place, it'd be a busy little local. In days where half decent pubs find it hard to survive, I fail to understand how this place keeps afloat...
I give it six months before the boards are up. Just hope someone who cares takes it on rather than Tesco :-(

|Considering that this dive is still open (when much better pubs have closed) suggests it is being funded by the Met police, as it keeps all the local 'chavs' in one location. If you ever pass when the clientel are outside, it is a very similar sight to Appleby Horse Fair.|
