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)

- It's ok, you'll be able to spot the students, they'll be wearing traffic cones on their heads, ordering vegetarian scratchings, and trying to pay by cheque.

Vegetarian scratchings?
Would that be the powdery residue formed after a non-meat eater satisfies an itch?

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.

Surely best student pub would have to be Dover Castle or Belushi's?

Or Wetherspoons if you want cheapness?

Medical Students that don't smoke? I've not met many.

Why not try the Duke of Sussex opposite the Old Vic in Waterloo. It's a bit local but on a friday and Sat they have karaoke until about 1am, and the landlord is local legend 'Honest Dave'.
