Had not been to the Royal Oak before yesterday, and dropped in for lunch. The food was good. The barstaff were OK. The landlady was a complete rottweiler and made us feel unwelcome, and also abused and put down the bar staff when they had done nothing wrong.

I know others on this forum like it, but I won't be back, sadly.

maybe she was having a bad day - i seriously would give it another try in about a half months time...

we've allways found it rather good in most respects - so the complaint here sounds like a one off.

but of course i could be wrong.

Not a one off complaint - I was unimpressed with Sunday lunch in there too.

I've yet to go back.

(The trifle was good though)

Oh dear. Haven't been in there recently and I hope this is not a sign of complacency or being over-stretched as a result of popularity.

[glad to hear the trifle quality is holding up - maurits will be pleased...]

just back from there, didn't eat but no barstaff/landlady complaints, but yeah, rubbish pub, don't go there ;)

I was in the other day - thought that the beer might be off. :o)

What a pity. These places soon get up their own wazooz after a bit of success....

Absolutely ;)

I would recommend that people intending to head to the Royal Oak, instead move straight for Belushi's on Borough High Street straight away. ;)
