No, No, No
The Royal Oak is totally unsuitable for students. In fact Frank and John will be employing doormen and style police to discourage this section of the population. Beards and bellies only
And by the way, the Royal Oak has moved to Great Suffolk street :o)
I really don't get the association of students and vegetarians mentioned above - most of us (or at least the ones I know!) are dedicated meat eaters and don't invite vegetarians round for dinner! (hmmm... chicken/egg).
And oddly my experience is that it's cheaper to drink in bars and pubs other than student unions if you know where to go.
