I would just like to thank everyone that supported The Royal Oak's first Open Mike night. I do hope that everyone managed to enjoy something and that you'll continue to support this event. From small acorns and all that I am hoping that once word gets round this event will get better and better. I would also like to thank the entertainers that performed last night and helped make it a success even if it was only a small success. In the coming weeks I have several high profile musicians coming so please don't miss these fantastic musicians.

Plea: If anyone reading this or you know someone that can or would like to come on a Monday from 9pm until late to perform and entertain, whether it be musical, vocal, telling a joke or two or something they can do that others would appreciate, then please point them in our direction or come yourself and join in the fun!

Thanks to everyone that supported this event once again. Ken

Now under new ownership following on from the good work done by Mary to turn the pub round (Mary has gone to the Swan With Two Necks at Longdon). Early signs are excellent. The new menu is very good indeed, the pub is clean,the atmoshere is great and the new landlord very friendly and welcoming. Cheese and biscuits are put out on a sunday evening and tapas on a friday. All in all a very good first impression.

I visited this pub recently with my young children as we wanted somewhere for lunch. It looked very inviting from the outside and we were not disappointed. We received a warm welcome from all the staff, nothing was too much trouble. I found the landlady to be particularly personable, very friendly and extremely helpful towards the children. The menu had a wide range of tasty dishes to choose from and our food was delicious, and very reasonably priced!
The pub itself had a friendly ambience, nice decor and good facilities. Lovely beer garden in which to chill. Will definitely call again when in the vicinity!

Woe woe and woe again what place did that feral person beneath visit? The last review was balderdash and piffle. Read further for the mirthless moribund torture that is Yee Royal Oak...
Like the fettered stench that emits from a recently munged carcass the oaks death hangs eerily on the corner of manor road. Dark forces swirl within as even the beer has left town...Inside bent creatures doubled over with the sad wreckage of a once fine pub squabble and pick over the its corpse. As the church bell tolls mournfully in the distance a wretched hag glooms over the till, dabbing the putrid bar surface with a darkened rag...That be three groats fifty says the filthy wench as a swill sodden tankard of froth is thrust discourteously under ones nose. The drink, fowl in odour, blackened by the barrels of unkempt pipes, stews in its own fetid juices...A fly buzzes around like an insectoid vulture waiting to land on scrags of rotten meat and discarded souls...An old man blinks in the corner, watching the wall as the visual box scatters images of Nazism, ethnic cleansing and Louis Spense. A tear gently rolls down his craggy face and splashes amongst the filth and offal. �I once was chained but now I�m free, the Royal Oak is the one for me' a lament falls off his wizened lips and he cries. A man scuttles across the rotten boards and thrusts another flagon of spew on his table; he grins and returns to the wall...The kitchen doors fly open and a hobbling waif oozing scab juices from pocked pores presents a slab of rotting timber upon which lies the corpse of an animal unbeknownst to medical science a fruit so withered and shrunken even the worm has left it, and two condiments filled with the tears of drinkers past. I eat only because hunger has crippled my abdomen with searing pain, or was it the drink?...This experience has left me haggard, my soul skewed and twisted and a bitter taste rings in the mouth, but that could be the drink...As I leave the buzzing fly drops dead, a death unnoticed but by I, a death that epitomizes the rank wretchedness that this church of the damned spits forth.

Car parking was adequate.
