Royal Oak (Bank/Gloucester)

Downtown Oak
Not to be confused with the "Dirty" Oak further south on Bank, the Downtown Oak features a slightly more posh décor and a covered summer patio. Drinks are fine, but if you want to nosh on some food, the Dirty Oak's ironically a safer bet.

      Homophobic hypocritical assholes at the Oak!
      I worked there for 2 years and tried my best to be friendly and nice to them. The staff was subtly abusive me and 2 of the managers as well. The management in general did not care that there was homophobic shit going on and would let me know they didn't care in a subtle way. They do not officially pronounce themselves a homophobic institution but they are homophobic and are expected to be this way by people in general. This I found was very hypocritical. I wouldn't go to work there unless you are thick skinned and can stomach all their abusive behaviour.

      I agree while Royal Oak is not a 'gay' bar. It's not phobic either. Friendly Pub with many drought taps. Occasionally host to the Bear's Brunch.

      Not really gay
      Nice place but no different then any other straight person pub. Not a gay bar perse
