The one the locals call the "Dirty" Oak
Your basic British pub. It may be dirtier, but the food is better and they have live music frequently at this, the original Royal Oak. If you're meeting someone, make sure you are clear about which Oak on Bank you're meeting at... confused? Have another beer.

      Nothing Special
      Stopped in on Saturday evening at around 8-8:30. The place was pretty much empty, with the bartender reading the paper and the other staff looking bored. Overall, the place seemed worn out. The food was typical for a Royal Oak: tasty but not spectacular, decent portions and moderately priced. The draught beer menu was surprisingly limited and the waitress seemed annoyed to be there. A much better bet is the new Royal Oak on Slater.
