The Royal Oak - Bath

Was out and about in Bath the other day, obviously i stopped for a pint in a couple of different pubs, this place was off the center but not by too far, just past the cricket club.

Not the best looking pub in the world but the barman tried hard, nothing I asked for was available so had to resort to a bottle of Bulmers, sorry Magners in the UK, I know, but it was a hot day and I was dying for a drink.
I ended up having a good conversation with the barman, about his ex-wife, betrayal, love gone sour, escape abroad, chases through the European countryside and courts, and skittles.
I left light headed and slightly depressed but also well fed on complimentary peanuts.
He also warned me that a lot of the locals were slightly cliquey but a danger to noone but themselves.

Worth a look though because it seems a nice enough place.

Please note the opinion here should be acredited to the Royal Oak pub in Widcombe, Bath (also in my opinion now much improved), not the fabulous CAMRA Pub of the Year (2007 - Bath & District Branch) at the Lower Bristol Road address shown.
