THE STORY OF The Royal Oak

Dating back to 1756 and situated in the St Giles district of the city, The Royal Oak was originally built as a forge by local wheelwright, John Morris, who rented the land from St John’s College. An ancient oak tree that stands on the site undoubtedly lent the pub its name.

Just a 20 minute stroll from Oxford station and with frequent bus links to the city, The Royal Oak’s location on the Woodstock Road makes it a landmark pub and an ideal spot for relaxation and refreshment after a day visiting the city’s prestigious universities, peaceful waterways or other historic attractions such as the Ashmolean Museum.
