Royal Oak landlords Frank Taylor and John Porteous have left after years of playing a pivotal role in the community by supporting the arts, heritage and Pilgrims’ Way.
The Royal Oak in Southwark’s Tabard Street now starts the new year with a new team.
This is the first pub out of Southwark on the Pilgrims’ Way. Its address may be Tabard Street but the road is really the start of the original Old Kent Road trod by travellers and pilgrims to Canterbury and the continent.
You can get a pilgrim stamp at the Royal Oak’s bar.
Harvey’s is 2017 and 2018 UK Brewer of the Year.
The new team is headed by Ryan and assistant manager Adam.
