No. 20 The Royal Oak
Visited on 10/3/11. This was the final pub we went to during our night out in Hoole - and we saved the best 'til last. Another Marston's pub and an absolute cracker it is too. Just look at the line up of ales: Jenning's Cumberland ale, Jenning's Cross-buttock, Marston's double drop, Ringwood Boondoggle. Marvelous. The place was packed with people who love ale and staffed by a landlord and landlady who love serving it. In addition, it has a really beautifully manicured bagatelle table (slight bias to the right mind). Ale + Bagatelle = Aceness. Huzzah !
