I have been going to the Royal Oak for years because it provides good fod and real beer in a proper pub environment.
The last visit 25june 14, was sooooo disappointing.
I ordered a ploughmans. A plough mans is a simple meal of cheese, fresh bread butter and some onion maybe. I was served stale bread in two thin slices, thin sliced cheese, some vegetables I failed to identify and a poor, very por, excuse for a pickled onion. I left most of it.
Such a shame a so called traditional pub has to serve a crap plough mans that is trying to be something it isn't
Pretending to be something it isn't sums up the pub.
Oh, and you cannot run a tab. You must order drinks then fo date the bar. You wait for service each time as your food gets cold or stale. This is to protect them from theft. Customer service is well down the priority list of the owner (I think it must be a chain now)
