According to this week's Time Out "Bars & Pubs special" edition although "very much a local's pub, the Oak also exerts its pull right across town to draw a committed clientele of maverick music promoters, small-press publishers, procrastinating crime novelists and sometime pornographers, not to mention highly demanding beer aficionados."
With that write-up expect the place to be even more heaving than usual. I'm only confessing to membership of the last named group!
[BTW has anyone recently asked Frank how long the back bar is closed for the building works?]
The magazine also warns that the Market Porter
could be even busier after the next Harry Potter movie is released. Apparently it is standing in for wizard's pub "The Leaky Cauldron" - expect even more walking tours arriving in the bar!
