"The Royal Oak purports to be "The Oldest Bar in Britain", as does the Hyde Tavern in the City. The earliest record of it being known as The Royal Oak is from the History of Hampshire where it is listed in 1732. Its frontage is very narrow and the main entrance is down an alley, but considering this it is very light and airy. It recently had a massive refurbishment and boasts a large space full of warmth, character and charm. It still keeps an aged feeling whilst being fairly modern in decor. Try the fantastic gourmet burger menu with amazing combinations of toppings. To make sure you grab a seat - get here early for the quiz on a Thursday as it gets BUSY! It's a Green King pub with their usual ales but my decerning friend and I had the 'Gem' from Bath ales which has has a rich aroma of hops and malt, with a long, deep, bitter-sweet finish and went down a treat."
