The Original Oak is a fairly normal pub on the inside with little discernible features, that said this place is great for a summers day to its huge beer garden. Its one of the few pubs that can house a large group outside.

This is a student pub. I only go when the students are on Holliday/break. It is nice in the summer when you can sit out in the large garden,
