The heart of any good pub is its cask ale, and it is this that defines a great pub as opposed to a restaurant. The bar is the beating heart of the pub and the centre of activity and the defining character of The Royal Oak.
The soul of our drinks line up is always the beer, after all we are a Timothy Taylors pub and it is essential that our cask ale is served in top condition in all its award winning glory. Our wines are handpicked by us with our superb wine suppliers who are small enough to cater to our every whim and are regularly seen running wine and food matching evenings or slurping a brash new world red in a corner by the fire.
Our lagers, bottles and spirits range aims to cater for everyone from those in need of a trusted pint of lager to those with aspirations to try something a bit different or a cut above the normal.
A pub just wouldn’t be a pub without great beer, and with at a range of Timothy Taylor real ales, a rotating guest ale, selection of bottled and draft craft beers, plus refreshing local and continental lagers, the beer lover truly is spoilt for choice.
If it’s wine you’re after then our diverse and eclectic wine list, focusing on tried and tested Old World beauties to interesting and rewarding New World delights, will really hit the spot. And they are all handpicked by our very own master of wines, Martin Jefferies. Combine all of this with a varied list of local and international spirits plus superb after dinner Ports, Sherries and Digestives we think it’s fair to say we have all your drinking needs covered.
