Easing of Covid Restrictions MONDAY 19th JULY

With the government lifting of the restrictions that have been in place since March 2020 we are of course delighted to welcome people back into our pubs with fewer restrictions in place.

However we continue to be careful and mindful of the safety of both our customers and staff and this is first and foremost our principle concern.

The virus is still with us and we urge all our customers and staff to be prudent in maintaining the sensible steps of:

 ·      HANDS

·      FACE

·       SPACE

As we get used to re-opening we shall begin to relax our rules but we continue to encourage all our staff and customers to wear masks or face coverings when moving around our pubs and also to make good use of the sanitising stations, to wash hands and maintain a level of distance consistent with Government advice.

Ordering, standing or sitting at the bar will be phased back in as both our customers and staff feel comfortable and we shall still have screens in place in areas of high traffic.

We trust that you understand and that, even with the liftings of some restrictions, the virus is still with us as we would like you to continue to visit and for us to work in safety whilst you are with us.

Thank you for your continued support.

Welcome to The Royal Oak


James and the team would like to welcome you to The Royal Oak, a brick built Victorian pub set in the heart of Borough, London.

Nestled on the corner, and down the road from Borough Market, high-rises have sprung up around us making our charming boozer a bit of an anomaly, oozing nostalgia for a bygone era of London drinking.

As Harvey’s Brewerys’ London Tap House we serve as many of their award-winning beers as we can fit on the bar! We can also supply their bottles, draught take-aways, and merchandise if pre-ordered with us.

We  try our best to be a home from home for any Sussex expats, those travelling through, cask ale enthusiasts, and anyone looking for an authentic pub experience. View our menu for a range of tasty Sussex treats including Cheeses, Sausage Rolls and Pies, as well as pub classics including Harvey’s Beer Battered Fish & Chips and our famous Salt beef Sandwich.

We hope to see you soon, and please get in touch for enquiries or to make a booking.
